Seth Bolderow has been appointed as director and head of education at headhunters Wild Search.
Seth graduated from Exeter University and completed his Master’s at Oxford University before embarking on a varied teaching career. He has worked in both day and boarding, single sex and co-educational schools in the UK and overseas.
He was a member of senior leadership teams for half of his 20+ year career in teaching and was instrumental in setting up two brand new schools. In Hong Kong, he was the first deputy head of Harrow International School and then he was the first full-time headmaster of Wetherby Senior School, part of the Alpha Plus Group.
Most recently, he has been a director of corporate finance house Ruffena Capital.
Commenting on his appointment, Seth said: “I am excited about returning to focus full time on the education sector at an exciting time for schools as they reflect and re-evaluate after a challenging time.
“Wild Search has advised a wide range of schools, colleges and groups since 2010 and I hope my own experience of schools both in the UK and abroad will enable us to build new relationships and provide useful insights for those with whom we work.”
Wild Search managing director Edward Wild said: “Seth combines an excellent academic background with a wide and varied range of experience in leadership roles which will be invaluable as we work together during the months ahead on key appointments for both board and leadership roles across the independent sector.”
Wild Search was formed in 2010 and has advised a wide range of investor-supported businesses and independent schools on senior appointments, including Dukes, MPW, OIEG, Shrewsbury School and David Game College. www.wildsearch.org
