Gail Brown

Group Compliance Director

  • Based in London, Gail is the Group Compliance Director for Phaidon International. She is responsible for all things compliance globally, from navigating changing legislations, moving and placing of contractors – all with a key focus on mitigation of risk. Gail has been working in the recruitment sector for 19 years and has a wealth of experience managing a variety of operational compliance teams.

    Since joining Phaidon a little over 6 years ago, Gail has been steadily building out a global compliance function to support and help the business deal with the every changing landscape facing the recruitment sector.

    Gail holds a Law Degree from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (formerly the University of Port Elizabeth). Gail also studied Law at the University of Westminster after moving to the UK and recently completed an MBA Essential course with the London School of Economics. Gail is a massive fan of anything sports related and spends most of her spare time watching a variety of sports.

    “I think I was destined to work in compliance, if it wasn’t going to be the law - I can’t think of another career that suits who I am and what motivates me more. I am passionate about good practices and process, am happy to lead from the front and have learnt from experience to be prepared for anything. Knowing that in some part what I do contributes to the ongoing growth of Phaidon, cannot make me happier.”
