Jim Denning

CEO of LHi Group

Jim

I'm Jim, CEO of LHi Group.

LHi has a unique culture, it marries seamlessly the blend of hardworking successful consultants with a start-up style vibe where people love what they do! As if this is not enough, our culture is underpinned by a large scale business which gives both the consultants and our clients a real sense of security and confidence that we will always deliver. We are a business that is not afraid of taking chances, we regularly back individuals to start new markets or break new territories as we have seen in recent years with the opening of new offices around the world. If you are in the recruitment industry and want to be part of a rapidly growing, internationally successful and most importantly great place to work then look no further than LHi!

Having moved to California for a few years, I am now basically addicted to two things… brunch and basketball… let's go Clippers!

Anne-Marie Butts

Director - Head of People

Anne-Marie

Anne-Marie, our long-standing Aussie looks after all things ‘people’ for LHi.

Responsible for internal growth and people development across all brands and geographical locations, Anne-Marie has a strong reputation within the industry and internally at LHi for her ability to identify and secure talent as well as drive and support individuals through their recruitment careers.

Her own career began as a recruiter placing graduates into the London recruitment market and working with agencies to develop their Graduate recruitment campaigns. It was here she was first introduced to Lawrence Harvey who was then a 6-man team working out of an apartment in Clapham. As a client, Anne-Marie worked closely with Tom and his team to identify all levels of talent for the business and even placed current Senior Divisional Manager Mike Bott as a graduate in 2005.

Anne-Marie joined the business in 2012 and has since built a strong and successful Internal Recruitment team, robust HR function and recognised training and development plan.

Anne-Marie spent her younger years working in her father’s racing stable in Far North Queensland where she and her pet goat would lead the horses to the track for their morning workouts.
