Matt Newman

Managing Director - USA - C-Suite

In 2011, myself and two business partners discovered a gap in the market for a company to specialise in placing finance roles exclusively within the recruitment sector, and so Camino Partners was born at the start of 2012. Following the success and demand from clients, I played a lead role in expanding our service offering to the recruitment of all back-office to boardroom level professionals.

This puts me in a unique position of both running a successful & growing recruitment business, but also working with hundreds of staffing firms in hiring leadership talent to grow theirs.

In my current position, I set up & lead our USA division as well as our Camino Executive brand.

Camino USA specialises in placing senior leadership roles in the staffing sector across the United States.

Camino Executive are a headhunting firm specializing in placing leadership roles within the Staffing, PEO and Executive Search sectors.

As the industry reaches an inflection point, leadership has never been more critical. Our extensive track record with publicly listed and privately owned staffing firms enables our clients to overcome this challenge by providing unrivalled leadership talent to drive business performance.

I am driven to succeed and provide the most effective recruitment experience our clients could wish for. The recruitment process is a trusted partnership and both recruiter and client should work with honesty and integrity. I have found that this approach has allowed Camino to partner with our clients, enabling them to build high performing teams.

I live by the motto that today’s candidate is tomorrow’s client. I spend the time with all candidates to understand their motivators, advise them on the market and their options and ultimately to assess that they will culturally fit within our clients.

I like to know all the best people within the staffing industry, I’m an avid networker and appreciate the value of extensive and long-term relationships.

If you’re a staffing firm business owner looking to hire leadership talent for your team, or you’re interested in pursuing a career in the sector or alternatively would like advice or to network, please get in touch.
