Meet the Team

Pete Alexander, BA (Hons)

Non-Executive Director

Pete has over ten years of experience working in executive search.

After graduating with a BA Joint Honours in English and Philosophy from the University of Nottingham, he spent five years working at Skill Capital, an executive search firm focused on the European private equity space. During his time with Skill Capital, he worked with a range of UK and international clients and placed Chief Executives and Chairmen into private equity-backed businesses across the retail, leisure, FMCG and eCommerce sectors.

In 2011, Pete joined The Up Group, a market leading search firm working across the digital and technology sectors with many clients looking to invest in the “e-health” and “m-health” markets. Pete has worked with a range of clients from start-up through to corporate and tends to focus on CxO / general management roles, whilst also building out a strong track record across product and technology. He also retains an active interest in the private equity / venture capital space and works with a number of firms across the European market.

Pete’s primary input into Compass Executives centres around “new board” assignments, start up buy and build models and emerging markets. Pete also has an active role in company strategy and direction.
