Alan McBride FCCA


After a corporate career where I was FD then MD of an £80m IT recruitment business, and then 12 years running my own business and recruiting at FD / CFO level for SME’s, I established Camino Partners with Sachin and Matt at the end of 2011 as a unique and specialist business, supporting the recruitment sector with the recruitment and introduction of all non-fee earning staff from back office to boardroom, 

Having now seen Camino grow to 17 people over the last 5 years, and with a strong position within our recruitment sector niche, 2017 is a year of transition for me and the business. I've now reduced my involvement to 2 days per week to improve my work life balance, keep me fresh and give my partners the opportunity to step up to play larger roles as Joint MD’s. I plan to remain with Camino for the long term, whilst gradually stepping back to a Non-Executive role  over the next couple of  years. Being too young to retire, I may be available to take on non-conflicting part time projects later this year as part of a portfolio career. In the meantime, I will be doing an Executive Coaching Programme at Henley and working with a couple of exciting early stage businesses.

As Chairman, I still oversee Camino's Board Practice and assist my colleagues who are delivering retained searches and assignments at FD / CFO, CEO and COO level. In my "spare time"  I oversee Camino’s Internal Financial, Legal and Administrative affairs too.  

Our Non Exec says I should be out networking and wining & dining most of my time. Who am I to argue with that? / 020 3805 5223.
