City Mourns Death Of Well Known Financial Recruiter


Sad to report.

eFinancialCareers says that Shaun Springer, former chief executive of City search firm Napier Scott – and the man who foretold the financial crisis in a 2007 article for eFinancialCareers – has died after a long illness aged in his late 50s. Former colleagues and friends have described his long and characterful career:

'Shaun was a larger-than-life character', said Mike Goggin at Brookleigh Search & Selection. 'He lived each day for that day'. Shaun Springer built a 'very high profile' business in the City during the early and mid-2000s, said Andrew Pullman, chief executive of People Risk Solutions and a former head of recruitment at Dresdner Kleinwort.

Former colleagues at Napier Scott described a keen intellect and bon-viveur. 'We had a very enjoyable and successful time at Napier Scott', said one, speaking on condition of anonymity as he now works for a competitor firm. 'We went out a lot and Shaun would often start the evening with a double-double whisky and large cigar before regaling us with stories about World War One. He was always very good company and had a heart of gold'.
