Management

John Lennon- Managing director and CEO of Lennon Wright Europe

I love all things German.
I studied German at University and have lived in Vienna and Munich in my life. I love the culture, the people, the way of life and the language – I am passionate about helping people find their dream job in this fantastic country.

I adore recruitment and helping people find their dream job. I founded the company as I truly believe in offering the best advice, the best information, and the best service – we try our best to really help make a difference to people’s lives and company’s growth.

I enjoy running, cycling, football (MASSIVE Chelsea fan!), and volunteering for charitable causes for cancer and people who stammer.

Robert Wright- Managing director and CEO of Lennon Wright America

I founded Lennon Wright Associates in January 2015 as a recruitment consultancy that thinks intelligently and treats its staff with care and integrity. I wanted to focus on a strong collaborative work ethic with an intelligent approach. I have a personal interest in blockchain technologies and how it will impact the technology space in the next coming years.

In my spare time (if I get any) I follow the English Premier League, notably the mighty Tottenham Hotspurs. I also share a strong interest in amateur and professional boxing. In my youth, I participated in several national championships, finishing in the top 4 as a light welterweight. A potential return to the ring (albeit at heavyweight) may be on the cards in the future.

Team

Faisal Amejee - Senior Talent Business Partner - Contract Germany

I joined Lennon Wright because of the ambitious nature I got from the company and the people here. Since being here, I have learned a lot, and I always am! No two days are the same. The sky’s the limit. We have a real family friendly feel here, and this helps to increase our aptitude for helping each other, always pushing each other to achieve greatness. We have loads of fun, but at the same time, we strive to ensure we give clients 110% (even on bank holidays!)

In my free time, I enjoy fitness and football and travelling. I am an avid football fan and follow the mighty European heavyweights that are Liverpool FC. I enjoy challenges and am quite competitive. When I’m not eating healthy, there is nothing I love more than devouring an XXXXXL pizza (with pineapples) followed by a sweet dessert and more delicious treats.

Khalifa Salim- Talent Business Partner

When I first joined Lennon Wright, I wasn’t too sure whether I’d finish my apprenticeship and move on or stay and pursue my career. Three months in I now know where my future leads.
Lennon Wright is one big family. Everyone here is transparent, approachable, and ambitious.

I spend most of the weekend either watching football (Arsenal), playing PS4, or sleeping (preparing myself for a productive week). I also love meeting new people from all over the globe. I speak English and Swahili.

Join Lennon Wright, and see where it takes you…

Sonny Ford - Senior Talent Business Partner

Lennon Wright is hands down the place to be! Throughout my life, I have been heavily involved in sports at a national standard and moved to Huntington Beach, CA where I swam amongst and against some of the best swimmers in the United States. When my time as an athlete came to an end, I didn’t know what I was going to do next. Searching for my next step, looking for something challenging but yet rewarding… It’s easy to say Lennon Wright offers me not just both but a lot more. I feel at home at Lennon Wright, supported and surrounded by like-minded individuals!

When I am not working, I love to travel, go to festivals, participate in sports and blow off some steam!

Mike Sharpe - Talent Business Partner

Lennon Wright has rocketed my career into new heights! I love being around highly motivated and successful people and Lennon Wright is the perfect environment. I specialise in working with the top mobile developers and development firms across the United States. I attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina where I received my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and played football and rugby. I am passionate about sports and fitness and you can often find me in the gym or watching a football game on the weekends. If you are looking for talent or a new job in the mobile development sector and want someone who is going to work hard for you, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Richard Brown - Munich Software Specialist

Once I decided to make the step away from South Africa and into the UK, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to get into as a career.

This was when I discovered Lennon Wright. Since being here I have grown and reached heights I never knew were possible. I have also been welcomed into a family which is littered with highly motivated and incredible people who have similar goals and aspirations as me.

In my free time you can catch me swinging a gold club, or glued to the TV screen watching any sport I can get my hands on.

Conor Healy - Technology Talent Manager (Berlin)

The welcome from Lennon-Wright was second to none, I’ve settled right in. The drive and ambition from the team is so apparent in everything we do. That doesn’t get in the way of having a good time, the office has a top class atmosphere with great tunes (most of the time).
I’ve still got a lot to learn but I’m confident I’m in the right place to become who I want to be!

A beer at my desk on Friday whilst we wrap up is also a big plus.

I live in coastal Essex currently, so at the weekends I love walking my dog Milly and relaxing with family and friends. I’m an avid Liverpool fan; I’m still waiting for Mo Salah to reply to me on insta. I’ve played rugby and football all my life, and I have a passion for travelling and languages; I’ve studied 5+!

I’m loving the international opportunities afforded me here, it really is a perfect match. Especially Germany, I did the German exchange and I’ve been in love with the country ever since. I hope to be there a lot more!

Sophie Gordon - Community Manager

I enjoy everything visual and creative, in my spare time I enjoy DIY crafts and being hands on. I LOVE a good crime documentary or film to get hooked into, unsolved mysteries have always interested me! Family and friends are a huge part of my life and I try to spend as much time with them outside of work as I can by organising loads of outings and meet-ups.
The Lennon Wright family have completely taken me under their wing and I feel so settled so quickly! Lennon Wright has been the best career move for me and I am so excited for the future ahead!

Ben Burton

When coming into the working environment, I didn’t have a clear mindset on what industry to work in. That was until the opportunity to join Lennon Wright came about. The visions and targets that Lennon Wright set themselves match my ambitions for the future. They are always striving to be better than yesterday and grow together. The team here is great and very welcoming who all have the same mindset, to help others get their ideal job.

In my free time, you will most likely find me watching any sort of sport, mainly football. I’m a massive Chelsea fan (best team in the country) so you will catch me watching them every time they play. Also into other sports such as Boxing and Golf. You can also find me on the weekends mostly down the pub enjoying a beer or two… who doesn’t? Big family man and also love meeting new people.

Louise Roots

My name is Louise roots when I first joined Lennon Wright, I came from a huge company that I didn’t see much growth in. From my very first day they made it very clear of the progression and the successes that I could be expecting within the near future. They understood what I was looking for in terms of a career and they were able to offer me an outstanding starting point to achieve my goals. Joining Lennon wright, I am the only Female 360 consultant currently and I am excited to bring a women’s touch within the company. I enjoy keeping active and going out with my friends and travelling.

Ben Hodgson - AI Machine Learning, Expert Recruiting Consultant

Lennon wright is the best career choice I could have made fitting my ambition to grow my career in a professional way with other like-minded individuals. A little about myself I grew up in Richmond, VA loved sports including golf, baseball, and soccer (football). I later developed some of my passions for Air planes and flew for a short period, Graphic Design, and computers and technology for gaming. My hobbies include movies (favorites are by Scorsese and Tarantino) and music (anything aside from opera). If I had to describe myself I would say I’m very laid back, creative, kind hearted, and easy to connect with.
Lennon wright has been very welcoming and friendly, the company is very young and professional with a family like atmosphere. I can’t wait to develop myself as a professional alongside the company growth.
