HornbyChapman Ltd is a specialist recruitment firm focused on senior permanent hiring within the Asset Servicing industry.

Paul Chapman and Victoria Hornby formed HornbyChapman in December 2006. Both had identified a need within the asset servicing market for a diligent, experienced firm which could bring added insight, professionalism and integrity to the hiring process at senior level. They therefore brought together their complementary skills sets from senior positions in the industry to form HornbyChapman. The firm's significant success to date has been a vindication of that move.

We focus on roles from middle management to board level in Sales, Risk, Consultancy, Relationship Management, Operations and Strategy / General Management for sell-side banks, buy-side institutions and consultancies. Our reach is global - we are currently working on roles in locations as diverse as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Edinburgh, Dubai and Johannesburg. We bring a combination of industry experience and a strong, current candidate network with in-house and external recruitment experience.

HornbyChapman Ltd offers its clients and candidates unparalleled industry expertise, proven market insight, quality research and delivery and all provided within a very strict adherence to ethical policy and practice.

And one of their management team:

Prior to founding HornbyChapman Ltd. with Victoria Hornby in 2006, Paul Chapman spent almost eighteen years in the asset servicing industry. Following graduation from Bournemouth University with an Honours degree in Financial Services he spent eleven years with Brown Brothers Harriman in a variety of positions prior to becoming Senior Vice President, Head of Investor Services London and also Managing Director, BBH ISL (Trustees) Ltd. Following that he worked for the Pershing Division of CSFB as Director of Sales for Europe and then State Street Bank as Senior Vice President and Head of Strategic Relationships. He subsequently moved to Northern Trust as Senior Vice President in the Global Fund Services business.

Along with Peter Shepherd, Paul runs the semi-annual Williams network management event and is a familiar face at asset servicing conferences around the world. He is married to former BBHer Karen and has daughters Emma, Molly and Maddy.
