Andrew Lees Joins TRANSEARCH In London

Andrew Lees recently joined TRANSEARCH in London as a Partner. He has 14 years experience in executive search, with particular expertise in handling assignments in the energy and natural resources and professional services sectors.

Andrew’s early search career was spent working for a niche, emerging markets focused boutique where he specialised in handling senior level finance, technical and commercial appointments across a range of industry sectors. During this period Andrew mainly worked on mandates for clients in Russia and the CIS drawing upon his fluency in Russian, which he had developed during his early career working in Ukraine.

Over the last nine or ten years he has narrowed his sector focus to concentrate on the oil and gas and professional services sectors whilst taking on a broader geographical remit. As a result, he has handled assignments in many different countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, USA, UK, Netherlands, Angola, Azerbaijan, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Ukraine, Norway, Algeria and the UAE, in addition to a plethora of assignments in Russia.

In the energy sector, Andrew’s recent areas of focus have been in the upstream, oil refining and gas/LNG segments of the market. These assignments have typically involved recruiting at the C-suite level or for divisional or country heads.

In professional services Andrew has extensive experience of handling partner level assignments across all service lines (Audit, Tax, Financial Advisory, Risk Advisory and Consulting) for major "Big Four" accounting and other more specialised advisory firms. In particular he has developed a rich knowledge of the energy-consulting segment of the market acting both for techno-economic oil and gas consulting firms and also for the energy practices of more generalist strategy consultancies.

Andrew endeavours to be a trusted advisor to his clients with the emphasis being on building long-term partnerships through a consultative and personal approach.
He has a BA in Russian Studies from the University of Leeds.
