Pure celebrates 20 years in business

We’re really proud to announce that, today, Pure today marks 20 years since opening its doors.

Since 1999, Pure has gone from a London based team of two – founders Chris Nelson and Charles Ferguson – to an internationally renowned firm with 5 offices around the world and specialist teams across 11 practice areas.

Joint-CEO Chris Nelson comments ‘When we started Pure as a tax recruitment firm, we always had ambitions to grow it further. What’s happened has totally exceeded those plans – we cover almost all areas of corporate governance for our client base, have 5 tremendous offices around the world and a fantastic culture of which I am very proud. I’d like to personally thank everyone – clients, candidates and employees – who have been a part of this journey.’

‘It’s been an absolute pleasure to grow Pure over the last two decades’ comments Joint-CEO Charles Ferguson. ‘It’s a testament to the quality of the work that our consultants deliver that we have continued to enjoy success, despite a number of recessions and an increasingly competitive and sophisticated recruitment market. I’d also like to thank everyone who has been a part of Pure, and look forward to continuing to see the business thrive for many years to come.’

Other milestones recently enjoyed by the business include marking 10 years since opening in Hong Kong, surpassing 100 employees globally, and establishing a strong foothold in the US and European markets via the newest offices in New York and Berlin.
