Mark Lewis

Managing Director

Meet Mark

Mark leads Livingston James’ CFO Services practice and over twenty years has built an excellent track record of senior and board level appointments in finance. He works with companies across a wide variety of sectors and geographies, ranging from FTSE 100 through to private equity and owner-managed businesses, delivering a bespoke service underpinned by professionalism and unrivalled market knowledge. Mark is also Managing Director of Rutherford Cross, our specialist search and selection practice focused exclusively on qualified finance appointments.

A graduate of the University of Manchester, Mark started his career in the once fledgling Energy Trading market before embarking on a career in recruitment with a leading FTSE 100 listed business. Following his strong performance in the North of England for this organisation, he was relocated to Scotland in 2004 to lead their senior finance business in Glasgow. In 2006, he was headhunted by a boutique professional services recruiter, quickly developing their senior finance business, resulting in his promotion to Associate Director within two years. Mark joined Livingston James in 2011 and led the launch of Rutherford Cross two years later.

Outside of work responsibilities, Mark is a keen participant in a range of sports and spends the majority of his weekends ferrying his two children to their various social engagements.
