Meet the Co-Founders

Meet our co-directors, Doug and Chris

Doug Bates, Director:

“I’ve got extensive recruitment expertise. First I started out with a leading sales recruitment consultancy, managing teams across several vertical markets and locations.

My next step was joining a leading city-based headhunter firm, conducting UK and European search assignments within the tech sector. After that, I established a practice that focused purely on partner-level recruitment for the leading consultancies.”

Chris Mason, Director:

“I’ve worked in recruitment since leaving university in 1995, and my career has spanned sales, technology and new media recruitment, up to executive level.

Before founding Intelligent People with Doug, I was a regional sales manager for one of the world’s largest recruitment organisations, managing teams in different offices across the UK and driving new business.

After a few years there I moved into a role where I won and developed relationships with some of that company’s largest UK accounts, using remote delivery with regional account management.

I’m passionate about great customer service, and about developing a strong, positive work ethic within my team.”
