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.
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 SHL OPQ 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.
