New Co-Chair for the ERA

The ERA is pleased to announce that Liz Shay has taken over as Co-Chair with immediate effect. Liz succeeds Heather Travis and she will work alongside the other Co-Chair, Mark Senior.

Liz has spent most of her career as an Executive Researcher and is currently Director of Research at international search firm The Miles Partnership, where she manages her own team of researchers. Liz has been an ERA Committee member since 2015 and has been active in a number of areas, including boosting membership and involvement with the ROTY (Researcher of the Year) award.  We all wish Liz good luck in this new role and we are sure she will make a big impact.

The departing Co-Chair, Heather Travis has held this role since 2006, working alongside Simon Stephenson and more recently Mark Senior. Heather has made a huge and invaluable contribution to the growth and success of the ERA in so many ways, but not least through her enthusiasm, ideas and knowledge, as well as her network of valuable contacts.  The ERA is delighted that Heather is continuing as a member of the Committee and we would all like to extend our sincere thanks for her input over many years as Co-Chair.

What people say about us

"I have now started the programme and so far, so good. We had our first introductory call and we’ve established a call every 2-3 weeks, the second of which we’re having on Thursday. I love the initiative as it enables not only to exchange knowledge about executive search but also to meet like-minded people with shared experiences, frustrations and successes, albeit working in different sectors! I’ll be able to offer further feedback once we’ve had some more sessions."
