Key People

Charlie Phethean, Sales Director

Charlie's background prior to entering the recruitment industry is what one could easily describe as 'varied'. Immediately before joining Barrington James, Charlie was responsible for the sale and management of a portfolio of high-profile domestic properties in South West London. However, before working in property, Charlie worked as an international DJ for several years in the music industry. He worked at many famous venues throughout Europe, America, and Australia; his career in music took him to a number of countries worldwide, and even resulted in him having his own fan-base! (If you ever have the chance to talk about his music career with him, some of Charlie's stories are fascinating!)

Charlie joined Barrington James in 2006 and was an integral part of Barrington James establishing itself as a market leader in the clinical research recruitment field throughout Europe. Now working as a Team Sales Director, Charlie manages a number of key Barrington James clients, and is heavily involved in the setting-up of a number of 'Managed Recruitment projects'.

Living in Sussex with his 3 boys, Charlie is a keen follower of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and, again, thinks that this year could be THE year!

Pippa Wilson, Sales Director

Before joining Barrington James in 2007, Pippa worked in Sales Management and was the Sales Manager for a highly-rated local radio station in the South East, Mercury FM. Alongside promoting the radio station, Pippa also had managed a sizeable sales force, and held responsibility for the sales team's performance and revenue generation.

Pippa first met Dan Barrington and Steve James when they explored advertising opportunities on Mercury FM; impressed with Pip's professional approach and personable nature, Dan and Steve "cheekily" discussed an opening within Barrington James and the rest is history! In 2008 Pippa was nominated, from 400 nominees, for Pharmaceutical Recruiter of the Year and qualified to reach the finals of the last 8, something she went on again to achieve in 2009 – an outstanding performance. Pippa concentrates her efforts in the Health Economics arena and has rapidly made herself the Recruitment Consultant of choice for many of her clients along with a number of her candidates with whom Pip has forged lasting relationships.

Pippa is known at Barrington James for being the office sun-worshipper, and describes travelling as her favourite pastime – "providing the sun's there!" Pip also enjoys music and dancing and thoroughly enjoys socialising with her ever-growing circle of friends!

Iain Williams, Global Operations Director

A relative newcomer to the world of Pharmaceutical Recruitment, Iain joined the Barrington James team in September 2008, having spent thirteen years as a finance manager in the construction and marketing industries. Iain is responsible for the day to day activities of the finance team, making sure that every 'I' is dotted and 'T' crossed, and of course everyone paid. Being a senior member of the Operations Team, Iain is viewed by everyone at Barrington James as the person to talk to about almost any of the company's business functions.

Iain has always enjoyed a challenge and as Barrington James continues to grow he has been given a variety of opportunities to expand his skills, not least the formation of Barrington James' operation in Singapore, along with project managing Barrington James' recent office move.

A graduate of Edinburgh University, Iain has a keen interest in history as well as a rather less healthy love of Heavy Metal rock music.
