Alec McCann

Alec McCann is a highly experienced executive search consultant, who joined the industry in 1999. In his earlier career, Alec worked in increasingly senior roles at SBC Warburg in London and Credit Suisse in Asia.

Alec enjoys the hard to fill roles, the esoteric and the more cerebral mandates that provide for a much closer working relationship with the client; however big or small they may be, and whatever their location. Alec has a strong network founded on 20 years of recruiting financial services professionals across debt finance, corporate banking, risk management and transaction banking. Having spent his career in and close to financial services executives, Alec is acutely aware of market disruptors and the shifting sands affecting the industry, he is able to adapt and tailor delivery accordingly.

Alec joined Park Road to make the most of a fresh approach and more honest ethos to executive search.  He lives in Kent with his two daughters.
