Independent route for headhunter Wall

Headhunter Louise Wall is quitting Kendall Tarrant to set up an independent training and development consultancy.

However, it is understood she will continue to work as a consultant with Kendall Tarrant – rebranded last month as The Talent Business – on its training and development needs.

Wall joined the headhunters in 2003 as group business development director from direct marketing agency EHS Brann where she was communications director. She was tasked with setting up an integrated division, Integration Practice, to look after headhunting, people development and training.

Previously, she was managing director of ehsrealtime, which merged with Havas stablemate Brann to create EHS Brann.

The headhunting company rebranded last month following the integration of Kendall Tarrant with Stolkin & Partners. The two agencies merged in March last year in a £1m deal which saw Kendall Tarrant owner Hat Pin formally acquire Stolkin.

Following the transaction, former chief executive Gay Haines left the agency after 13 years to set up on her own.

Head of media Martin Bowley, a former Carlton Sales chief executive, followed soon after. He had been at the agency just seven months.
