Natalie Whittlesey


I help business leaders to recruit and assess C-Level technology, digital and transformation talent across various sectors

I graduated from Manchester University in the late 90’s before moving to London, where I worked in the media and telecoms industry. In 2001, I swapped London for New Zealand, working in a boutique agency and market leader in NZ where I specialised in the recruitment of IT Leaders. On my return to the UK in 2006, I joined Harvey Nash, becoming a Director in 2014. I host events, sharing insights from our thought leadership publications including our HN/KPMG CIO Survey, the largest indicator of IT sentiment in the world. I also offer advice on organisational models, offshore development and business process outsourcing, managed service provision and psychometric profiling (I am Hogan qualified). Key roles and clients I have recruited into are: Group IT Director at one of the country’s largest exhibition centres, CIO at a leading medical association as well as a Head of Strategic Change and Head of IT at a financial services company.

Expertise: I specialise in C-Level recruitment, delivering Senior Appointments with a technology, innovation or transformation edge. These roles include CIO, CTO, Chief Innovation Officer, Chief Digital Officer (CDO), technology-biased Operation Directors, Transformation Directors (whether global, divisional, regional, etc.) and more.
