The Ramsey Hall team of business consultants, led by MD Phil Boyle, are cherry picked for their industry expertise.

With over 20 years experience in their respective fields, each one works tirelessly to fulfil our clients’ briefs and moreover their expectations.

Phil Boyle
Managing Director

Our MD Phil is a Chartered Engineer with first class degrees in engineering and maths, a Masters in Avionics Systems and another in Management Sciences accordingly. He is also Hogan HPI, HDS, MVPI and CEBOPQ accredited and similarly, BPS Level A/Level B+ qualified in psychometrics. At the same time, a past president of the global Royal Aeronautical Society(RAeS), and a charity trustee for over 20 years. Phil chaired the RAeS’s Board of Trustees from 2012 to 2017 and in addition was awarded the Society’s Sir Robert Hardingham Sword for outstanding service.

Originally an operational pilot in the RAF, Phil retired from flight duties in the mid 1980s. As a consequence he took a job with a Mayfair-based management consultancy. And from here on was headhunted into one of the UK’s leading executive recruitment consultancies. Ultimately as an aerospace and defence specialist. Finally co-founding Ramsey Hall in 1991.

First and foremost Phil is a ‘generalist’ executive recruiter by design. However his experience in aerospace, engineering and, moreover, manufacturing have in addition led to him specialise in these areas accordingly. Another of Phil’s strengths lies in the not for profit sector where he similarly possesses outstanding sector knowledge. As a consequence, he’s recruited extensively at Board, Senior and Specialist levels for high profile charities and FTSE 100 companies. As Ramsey Hall’s MD, Phil has arguably transformed the recruitment and selection model. For example, overseeing the seamless integration of best practice psychometric assessment, and candidate selection, into a single streamlined process. The result is a unique recruiting practice that identifies top leadership talent at a global level. And, above all, with over 300 board hires under his belt and counting, Phil, as a consequence, is uniquely positioned to do this.

Matthew Davis

Ramsey Hall’s Director Matthew has an MSc in Performance Management & Workplace Learning. From the esteemed Centre for Labour Market Studies, University of Leicester. In addition, he’s a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and moreover, the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM). As a result in 2016, Matthew earned The Advanced Diploma in Corporate Governance from the ICSA. Furthermore, he is British Psychological Society Level A and B (Intermediate Plus) qualified. First and Foremost in the delivery of CEB OPQ, MBTI FIRO B. In addition, to the Hogan HPI, MVPI and HDS suite of assessment tools.

Arguably a highly skilled Organisational Development consultant. Matthew brings extensive experience of talent management, business psychology, leadership consultancy, and ultimately resourcing to Ramsey Hall. Which, by the same token, benefits both our UK and international clients accordingly.

For this reason, typical projects undertaken by Matthew include one-on-one psychometric assessment and, consequently, executive appraisals. And, at the same time, Executive coaching & development for board members and senior teams in organisations redesigning structure. Moreover, Matthew oversees our Ramsey Hall assessment and development centres. In addition to delivering performance and change management coaching. By and large designed to improve client costs and employee productivity at all levels. Similarly, many of the enterprise wide projects Matthew delivers also include team and organisational capability assessment, for instance, with gap analysis.

Recent successes have included:

  • CEO recruitment, and subsequent board development, for a major not for profit organisation. Consequently achieving ‘transformational change’ to both leadership and capability alike.
