Sharon Mullen

Sharon Mullen has an executive career of over 20 years, specialising in human resources and executive search.

For the last 17 years, Sharon has worked alongside global organisations including Barclays, Reckitt Benckiser, Lloyds Banking Group, Toronto Dominion Bank Group, Kellogg’s, Carlsberg, AstraZeneca, American Express, Rolls Royce, Specsavers, TUI, Burberry Group Plc, British Airways, eBay and Millennium Copthorne Hotels, bringing significant expertise and experience in appointing senior and board level HR leaders on a national and international basis.

Sharon’s extensive expert subject knowledge and networks have enabled her to contribute to both specialist and national media articles, including Harvard Business Review, The Sunday Times, Insider, Real Business and specialist CIPD produced literature. She is regularly requested, as a mentor and a coach, to provide consultancy advice to senior/board level individuals and organisations.

In 2000, Sharon co-founded Strategi Executive Search, an international HR resourcing firm. After the sale of the business to Advantage Professional, she continued in her position as Director with responsibility for the merged business post sale and international markets. After three years, in April 2011, Sharon decided to exit the organisation.

Since late Autumn, along with Co-Founding Director Jo-Sellwood-Taylor, Sharon has been undertaking an in-depth research initiative in conjunction with Dr Anthony Hesketh of Lancaster University Management School – ‘Building a Non-Executive Director Talent Pool for Inclusive Capitalism – Do You See What I See?’

Mullwood Partnership’s previous research study focused on the topic of ‘Broadening the CEO Succession Pool’, working in collaboration with Warwick Business School and supported by Criticaleye (Network of Leaders) around why HR Directors don’t typically make it to the CEO role.

Alongside Mullwood Partnership, Sharon works with a number of organisations as a non-executive director advising on business growth and stability

As part of her networks, Sharon operates as a ‘Maverick’ within the Wavelength community utilising her extensive network to ‘connect’ individuals and provide more insight into social entrepreneurialism. By combining the most globally admired organisations with social entrepreneurs, businesses are created to both make profit and enable powerful social change.
