Claire-Louise McSherry


Claire-Louise founded McSherry Brown in 2008. Before she had even opened the company doors for the first time, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank jumped on board as her first clients.

With a background in tech and transformation in executive search for the financial services industry, Claire-Louise has always been a huge diversity advocate. She created McSherry Brown to cater to firms who had already gained traction in actively hiring diverse leadership teams and were building a succession pipeline of female and minority leaders.

Over the last 11 years, Claire-Louise and her team have carved an enviable reputation at the very forefront of the diversity conversation. They are taking incredible strides to create a more diverse world — one organisation at a time.

Although much of her spare time is absorbed by ferrying around her young twins, Claire-Louise is proud to be an investor in female tech entrepreneurs. She is also a career mentor for girls from underprivileged backgrounds. Once a year she indulges in her passion for house music and spends time in the dance capital of the world — Ibiza and the mud infested fields at Glastonbury.
