DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Companies that incorporate diversity and inclusion strategies in their business have stronger financial performance and provide greater shareholder value. A 2017 McKinsey study concluded that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on their executive teams were 21% more likely to experience above-average profitability than companies in the bottom quartile. Companies with more ethnically and culturally diverse executives were 33% likelier to financially outperform the national industry median.

Hartmann Mason has a strong track record in diversity search assignments and works hard to demonstrate that having a diverse, inclusive, and well-balanced leadership team is the most successful way to attract and retain the most productive and engaged workforce.

We continually map and cultivate trusted networks of diverse talent who not only form our pool of contacts, but also offer expert advice and introduction to the relevant pathways that expand our network. We also seek to broaden our networks of potential candidates by incorporating the use of external published resources produced by relevant organisations which highlight global leaders and emerging talent from under represented groups.

Our Team

Daryl Mason

Daryl Mason

Director

Daryl graduated with a sport degree from the University of Northumbria and spent a couple of years as an exercise physiologist, including pioneering one of the first medical referral schemes for exercise in the UK. He then moved into the commercial health club sector as a club owner and operator and subsequently moved into executive search, where he has enjoyed 19 exciting and successful years.

Daryl’s experience in executive search enables him to provide a particularly high level of specialist knowledge within the sport sector, whilst he has also forged longstanding client relationships and experience within practice areas such as automotive, consumer, finance and Board.

Daryl’s passion and knowledge of the sporting world, in addition to his ability in the executive search profession, combine to make him the search partner of choice for a number of organisations across the sporting landscape. A former international swimmer, Daryl recently returned to Masters competition and has a strong understanding of the people infrastructure needed to achieve both corporate and sporting success.
