Lewis Bunn

Co-founder & Director

Lewis was involved in logistics for five years before tumbling into the world of recruitment almost 10 years ago initially in software & IT. Having managed a number of freight forwarding recruitment teams, he decided it was time to establish his own freight forwarding staffing business. Lewis spends his spare time volunteering as lifeboat crew, playing golf, or on one of his many bikes. Loves good coffee, arguably the best golfer in the business.

Clara Hatton-Beattie

Regional Manager, Domestic (USA & Canada)

Clara has a lengthy recruitment background in the hospitality sector, and also worked for the Department for Work & Pensions helping those who lost their jobs during the pandemic to get back into work. So, it’s safe to say she has a passion for recruitment! She is now covering sales across the Midwest with plenty of her time naturally being spent on Ohio where there’s a real need.

Dan Hewitt

Regional Manager - Germany

Dan ventured into the world of recruitment in 2022, after more than five years in various commercial positions within the FMCG sector. Dan recently became a father, and loves spending time with his daughter and taking the dog on long walks. Unfortunately, this means his hobby of going to the gym has taken a back seat! Although he does still play for his local football team most weeks. Dan is usually the first in the office so he has control of the office music for the day (with his taste being pre-90's)!

At a delicate time in both my personal and professional life, Mica appeared like my lucky star. Never forgot about me even if months went by. When I was ready, we had a wonderful intro meeting, and the rest is history. Within a week I was assigned 5 interviews and on the 3rd one I clicked. The time frame was 2 weeks and a day from initial contact to verbal hiring agreement. I am very happy where I am and owe this young woman so much. Passionate, fun, professional and focus. Never had I had the opportunity to work with such a talented recruiter. I hope she gets noticed because she stands out from the crowd. Gracias Mica, lo mejor del mundo siempre. We shall always keep in touch.
