• Financial Services


In such a brief time, it's heartening to witness the profound impact we've made, largely driven by our unwavering dedication to putting our clients and customers at the heart of every decision and strategy.

Paul Webster is Managing Partner at Page Executive North America and a Global Practice Leader for our Financial Services Practice. 

After making a natural switch from the financial sector to recruitment in the year 2000, Paul has carved out a peerless career in executive search, covering board and senior sales and marketing positions as well as all areas of his specialist industry: financial services. 

With four years of managerial experience in the UK under his belt, Paul crossed the Atlantic to focus on the US and Canadian markets in 2005. Since then, he has developed a formidable track record of senior placements for global institutions and fintech firms, as well as private equity and banks in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and Latin America. 

At Page Executive since 2007, Paul has been directly responsible for the hiring of revenue-generating verticals within financial services, spanning corporate, commercial and investment banking, and the buy side including private equity. But his hard-earned market expertise and natural gift for management has seen Paul take on responsibilities, launching the Sales and Marketing Division and the Page Executive Business in North America, and developing our US Financial Services Practice before becoming the Global Practice Leader for the Financial Services sector.

Effortlessly juggling multiple balls, Paul led the hiring, training and development of some of Page Executive’s top performers while simultaneously becoming the highest individual revenue generator in the company’s history. Behind the numbers is a dedicated, tenacious executive search consultant who gets to the core of his client’s needs before shortlisting senior profiles that gel with the business from both a performance and cultural perspective.

Outside the office, Paul collaborates with the I Have a Dream and Make a Wish charitable foundations. He has also been directly involved with PlayRugby USA for over 15 years, working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop as individuals and achieve entry into college.
