CEO Worldwide Appoints Trevor Lee to Management Board

Strategic move for cross-border executive recruitment specialist as it continues to disrupt traditional models

CEO Worldwide, the international executive recruitment specialist, has announced the appointment of Trevor Lee to its Management Board as International Resourcing Director with immediate effect.

Trevor brings extensive knowledge gained from over thirty-five years in executive recruitment, including cross-sector, cross-culture and cross-border placements, working with organizations of all sizes from start-ups to MNCs.

Trevor was appointed following his wide ranging review of how the executive recruitment industry should serve its clients in a more ethical and transparent way, to meet the challenges of a global digital economy.

Patrick Mataix, Founder & CEO of CEO Worldwide, said: “We welcome Trevor to our Management Board, where his many years as a recruitment practitioner and seasoned business leader – always embracing change – will prove invaluable.

“This is very much a meeting of minds. Trevor’s commitment to nurturing and leveraging global collaboration, while challenging the status quo of existing practices is highly reflective of the CEO Worldwide approach and the reason we’re so successful at sourcing ideal candidates at very short notice.”

Trevor’s parallel interest in the broader aspects of talent management have led him to develop innovative leadership theories in association with the LBS Mlab, which he brings to the task of assembling C-suite shortlists of candidates for CEO Worldwide’s clients.

Trevor said: “C-level placement and cross-border search are undergoing a revolution, powered by digital innovation and a client-centric business model. I’m wholly committed to CEO Worldwide’s vision to disrupt the executive recruitment industry and overturn outdated, overpriced models in favor of flexible service and transparent, competitive fee structures.”

Trevor lives in London and is a Fellow of the Institute of Directors.


Since 2001 CEO Worldwide has certified 17000 international top executives (iCEOs) and managed 1,053 executive search mandates in more than 70 countries, including executive consulting, interim management and C-level permanent recruitment.
