Susie Cummings

Susie Cummings founded Nurole, a board and C-level headhunting platform, in 2014. She passionately believes that great governance requires real diversity, not just of gender or ethnicity but of experience, knowledge and, above all, thought. Nurole reaches talent that traditional headhunting fails to reach by letting candidates lead in order to deliver outstanding outcomes for both candidates and organisations. A by-product of this revolutionary process is the diversity of candidates generated to make up the shortlists.

She was a former top tier headhunter with over 30 years’ experience and founder of one of Europe’s most successful retained executive search firms. She started her working life at Advent Venture Partners where it soon became clear that getting the right senior management team was as important to the success of a business as the strategy or securing the capital itself. Susie went on to found boutique executive search firm Blackwood Group, before launching Nurole in 2014 with the aim of helping organisations optimise their search processes via an online platform.
