Marlin Selection, a London based recruitment firm which focuses on the global financial and commodities markets announces the acquisition of HD-Search, a specialist executive search firm focused on the physical commodities market.
Led by Huw David, who has over 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry, HD-Search has established its position within the market, recruiting physical trading executives in Metals, Softs and Hydrocarbons, together with senior risk, marketing and financial functions within commodity trading houses and energy firms across Europe, the Middle East Far East and the USA.
