Brickendon promotes Snyder and Pittaway to partner

Related Topics

Brickendon, a global management and technology consultancy, has promoted two executive directors to partner.

Nathan Snyder, head of the firm’s US business, and Lee Pittaway, head of business development, will take on the new positions immediately as part of wider plans to boost the company’s management structure and give staff greater responsibility in the running of the firm.
Over the past year Brickendon has appointed a new chairman and non-executive director. Earlier this year, the firm issued employees a stake in the company and increased opportunities for internal promotion in a bid to help staff play a larger part in the future growth.
Brickendon opened its first office in the US last year.
Brickendon chief executive and founder Chris Burke (pictured) says: “We are very pleased to promote Nathan and Lee. They have both been instrumental in driving the extraordinary growth we have experienced as a firm. This has only been possible because of the value proposition they have presented to our global financial clients and the successful way they have managed change in these turbulent times.
“It is a sign they have both excelled as leaders within the firm and it is fitting they be promoted to partner.”
Snyder, who joined Brickendon in August 2013, moved to the US in July last year to open the New York office. As well as delivering a large governance programme onsite for an international investment bank, he is working hard to expand Brickendon’s US footprint.
“I’ve enjoyed the absolute meritocracy within Brickendon,” says Snyder. “At every stage I have volunteered to take on more responsibility and been rewarded with the opportunity to own a new challenge within the company.
“The ultimate responsibility has been the founding of our first overseas office – a challenge that I’m happily working to solve.”
Pittaway joined Brickendon in June 2013 to head up the firm’s resourcing strategy. Brickendon has more than doubled in size, including the opening of the New York office. Last year Pittaway took on the role of head of business development and now, along with Snyder and Burke is helping to set the agenda for the firm’s international expansion.
“I love the entrepreneurial style within Brickendon set by our CEO Chris Burke,” says Pittaway. “Since I started, I’ve been given full autonomy to grow out three functions and deliver huge growth within the business. I’ve seen us double in size year-on-year, with more exciting times ahead. It’s been a pleasure to be a part of a fantastic story.”
“I’m now focussed on helping the business grow globally, driving sales, relationships and making our clients our fans. The senior management team is like a family, all with the same vision.”
