Samm co-founded Few & Far. He shared a vision to change the stereotype of recruitment. “How did they do this”, I hear you not say? To be specialists in a world of generalists, and by putting an emphasis on meetups and events. Together they built a strong foundation for the team to take this approach to recruitment. So far, so good.

Originally Head of Engineering, Samm helped launched The Hacker Games in 2016, our annual charity hackathon. Unable to sit still, he handles all things operations and has helped develop our Talent Strategy offering. knowing that with our years of combined industry experience and knowledge, we can offer far more value to our clients than just “bums on seats”
Samm is lucky enough to have surrounded himself with beautiful women; his wife Gigi and baby daughter, Jessie. He has a special place in his heart for Japan and escapes there for a holiday when he can, and hopes one day Few & Far will have a home there too.

Nick co-founded Few & Far in 2013 and hasn’t slept since. He spends his days managing an overly needy sales team competing for his attention & his nights at product meetups or out for drinks with said product people or founders, discussing ideas for new products of course. If he slept, we believe he would dream of product.

“Who's got a charger?”
As you may have guessed, Nick is our resident cat herder & team councillor.
He found that Product Management was a skillset that often went misunderstood, he’s dedicated the past 10 years educating people about what they actually do and solving the problems companies face when hiring them.
After noting that recruitment businesses were only solving a small part of a bigger problem, he started brainstorming solutions on a whiteboard. After annoying his friends in product for feedback, he proposed our new offering and with the help of the team, it’s been refined & launched. Nick has gone back to his role as resident cat herder and team councillor.
Outside of meetings and meetups, his friends selfishly drag him from Europe to Vegas to attend their stag dos & weddings.
