Key People

Antony Cox

Managing Director

Managing Director Antony Cox is an experienced technical recruiter with nearly 30 years’ expertise in placing contract and permanent people at all levels.

With his working life beginning as a technician prototyping electronics R&D systems, Antony’s pathway, and therefore his approach to recruitment, is unique; he has ultimately seen the technical working world from three different angles - that of the candidate, the client and the recruiter. It’s because of this experience that he’s been able to develop a trusted and consistent record in analysing and resolving human resource problems, specifically providing our clients with Engineering and Technical recruitment solutions.

This, coupled with Antony’s vast experience in strategic development - having overseen the formation and expansion of ProTech - makes him a valuable resource for clients looking for consultancy with genuine substance.

If your organisation is feeling tired or in need of a staffing re-think, please get in touch with Antony for an industry trusted, fresh perspective that is proven to add value.
