Intramezzo has been helping high growth companies achieve their global ambitions since 2002. By securing world-class talent, we support investors, boards and CEOs with business-critical and strategically important hires, conducting bespoke research and providing end-to-end project management.
Our team understands the unique requirements of scaling up a business, and the steps needed to deliver change and transformation. Intramezzo focuses on quality, not volume. Clients come to us for specialist knowledge and our ability to offer an agile solution with a global reach, accessing the best candidates no matter where in the world they happen to be. We leave no stone unturned.
Intramezzo clients are typically seeking to disrupt markets or create new ones, and we have particular expertise in high technology industries such as chemicals, materials science, electronics, IT and life sciences. We support all business stages: you might be accelerating the commercialisation of your ideas, driving growth (or hyper-growth), or perhaps expanding internationally. Intramezzo also supports turnaround/transformation and preparations for exit.
Dermot specialises in delivering critical search assignments for tech and equity-backed businesses, often with an international or global remit.
With a focus on key client objectives and strategies, he has a track record in making senior, board level appointments that create significant commercial impact and drive shareholder value.
His own background includes extensive experience in launching, building and transitioning entrepreneurial organisations, and this has given Dermot a rare depth of insight into the unique challenges faced by high growth businesses.
Working with both corporate and early-stage entrepreneurs alike, he is dedicated to forging long-standing client relationships – and is passionate about partnering with exciting companies to make ‘hard to find’, high-performance appointments.
Dermot holds a certificate in Company Direction (IoD) and a post-graduate Diploma in Marketing (CIM). He is also a frequent contributor to the national and international conference circuit.
Outside the fast-paced environment of Intramezzo, Dermot can be found casting a fly onto Hampshire’s rivers or practicing Bikram Yoga. His love of adventure often dominates his ‘downtime’ –with holidays often involving skiing or long distance walking – and when indoors, he is an occasional player of the bagpipes.
