Amsterdam, March 9, 2022.

Thomas Thor, a leading global specialist in recruitment, search, and workforce consultancy, advocating for Net Zero and known for its work across the Nuclear sector, today announces the opening of its London office and two senior leadership appointments. This follows successive years of growth across the region and a tripling of headcount in the last 2 years.

  • Ben Smith appointed to European Managing Director
  • Pierre Morvan appointed to European Business Director

“Our European business has gone from strength to strength over the last 5 years and much of that is due to the leadership, expertise and diligence of Ben and Pierre. They make a formidable team. We have bold plans for growth and these new roles will allow us to better harness our talent across the region for the benefit of our clients.” said Tim Walker, Global Managing Director.

The new structure will see Ben manage Thomas Thor’s presence across all aspects of the nuclear industry in the European region as well as deepening the firm’s engagement with organisations focused on New Nuclear and Advanced Nuclear Technology. Ben has over 16 years’ experience in the Nuclear sector and since joining Thomas Thor in 2016 has led account direction for major nuclear new build programmes and across Advanced Nuclear Technology areas such as AMR/SMR and Fusion.

Pierre has played a key role in expanding Thomas Thor’s business across Europe and will now lead on European wide business strategy, transformation, and the move into key emerging markets.

“Being active in the industries we support has always been central to our approach at Thomas Thor. For over 12 years we’ve supported the global nuclear workforce from our offices in Bristol, Cumbria and around the world, but now is the right time for us to build our presence in London. We are engaged in many of the Industry discussions about Nuclear’s role in the transition to Net Zero and as more clients seek our expertise in talent attraction to the regulated industries, I’m proud of this milestone.” said Callum Thomas, CEO.

Global Operations Director, James Ball, is also now based in London, together with a number of colleagues delivering solutions for clients across the UK and Europe.
