John Rose

Non-Executive Director

I am passionate about supporting recruitment leaders and helping businesses and individuals grow. Green Park is an ambitious and entrepreneurial firm and my role as Non-Executive Director provides me with the ability to share my practical knowledge and experience to help the business achieve their goals.

John Rose joined Green Park as a Non-Executive Director in early 2017, bringing with him more than 30 years’ experience in the recruitment sector and an extensive leadership track record both in the UK and internationally.

Having spent over 12 years in a variety of CEO positions across global recruitment organisations, John has a unique understanding of the professional recruitment and staffing industry, with a proven ability to drive profitability and lead successful business turnaround, expansion and exit strategies.

His CEO portfolio includes significantly increasing the profitability of the FiveTen Group by building a strategy based on specialist recruitment brands and expanding the business into less commoditised markets. Prior to that, he held the position of CEO for Hudson’s UK/Ireland operation, where he integrated 12 acquisitions, re-shaped the business and grew profitability by £11m in four years. He was also CEO of Kellan Group, an AIM listed recruitment company.

Now, in addition to his advisory role at Green Park, John uses his own venture, Vered Consulting, to offer hands-on Executive Support for Recruitment Businesses and their Leaders.
