HdE TALENT Appoint Scott Murphy To Managing Director

Specialist performance growth group, HdE GROUP (HdE), has appointed Scott Murphy to the role of Managing Director of HdE TALENT, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the growing Bristol-based company.

Scott brings more than 10 years’ experience in the technology recruitment sector, with a wealth of experience and a proven track record as a pivotal member of the management team, having previously held senior delivery roles at Sanderson, Venquis, and Talent.


The appointment will see Scott step-in to lead the delivery of HdE TALENT’s ambitious growth plans, supporting clients through an ever-changing and increasingly challenging recruitment environment.

Scott succeeds Co-Founders Ashley Wheeler and Dale Graham, who previously led HdE TALENT both playing a key role in its impressive foundations to become a truly groundbreaking player in the talent market. Ashley and Dale now resume their positions at the head of HdE GROUP, pushing forward with the launch of HdE WORKS and the further expansion of HdE AGENCY for 2020-2021.

Completing HdE GROUPS management restructure is Maggie Shepperd, Group Head of Product, who has been appointed to the company’s Board of Directors. Maggie brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having first joined HdE in 2018.

Maggie will join Scott, Ashley Wheeler and Dale Graham, who together alongside their steering committee will form the new board of directors, with each playing a significant role in demonstrating an outstanding commitment to HdE’s people, clients, and culture since it began trading in 2018.

Scott Murphy, Managing Director of HdE TALENT, said: “It’s a huge honour to have been appointed as the Managing Director at HdE TALENT, especially at such an exciting time for the company. Under Ashleys and Dales leadership, we have begun to build a reputable group with strong foundations and ambitions for growth. I’m confident that we can continue to build on this success and drive our shared vision forward.

“Having followed Ashley and Dale closely since they started HdE, I have witnessed first-hand their dedication to making HdE GROUP the best that it can be. I’m glad that together we’re taking the next steps for the future growth of the company.

“These strategic changes also highlight HdE GROUP’s continued commitment to building a team and infrastructure to scale. I’m confident we’re in an ideal position to grow the business, through the HdE team, even further.”

HdE GROUP continues to go from strength-to-strength after making a number of strategic new hires whilst attracting some of the biggest and most ambitious technology and digital clients.
