Alex Keetch

Managing Director & Chief Commercial Officer

A highly experienced search consultant covering governance, regulatory and controls, Alex became a Director of Halsey Keetch in 2015, co-leading the firm’s rebranding alongside Caroline, and leading all assignment delivery and commercial activities since then.

Alex joined the recruitment industry in 2005. After a substantial tenure with Robert Walters plc, recruiting accountants and investment analysts on behalf of asset management clients, he joined Leathwaite, a leading independent executive search firm. Over four years, he concentrated on senior UK and international search and talent mapping assignments for various global banking groups and other major financial institutions, focusing predominantly on the CFO, COO and internal audit disciplines.

In 2014, he joined a start-up as head of the firm’s financial services practice, handling a variety of search and talent mapping assignments for FTSE100-listed insurance companies, before moving to co-lead Halsey Keetch the following year.

An enthusiastic observer of the financial services industry and the history of money, Alex holds a degree in English Literature with French from Sussex University in 2003, and particularly enjoys listening to and writing up candidates’ life stories and setting them into historical context. Free time is spent raising Ben and Seren alongside Caroline and supporting Tottenham through thick and thin.Back to Our Team.
