Harry Youtan - 'Better Never Stops'

 

Harry Youtan - Chief Executive Officer, Phaidon International

"Over the past decade with Phaidon International, I have held a number of roles across the group.

There aren’t many businesses where you have the chance to craft your own career from graduate to CEO, with multiple opportunities to forge the future of the group.

Prior to being appointed CEO, I was Managing Director of North America, where I launched the business in 2013. In just a short four years the USA business was recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as one of the five fastest-growing staffing firms two years in a row, and I was awarded a place on the ‘Staffing 100’ list of most influential people in staffing.

Since joining Phaidon International in 2007, I have seen the amazing growth first hand and have been lucky enough to be surrounded by talented and driven individuals; all striving to achieve their potential and the business’s potential together.”

In 2018 Harry was named in Staffing Industry Analysts 40 under 40.

“Over the last six years, Harry Youtan has held roles as both managing director of Phaidon International North America and as Phaidon’s global CEO. In North America he spearheaded business growth across the region to more than 200 people in five locations. During this period, Phaidon was recognised as one of the top-10 fastest-growing staffing firms by SIA for three consecutive years. In 2016, he was promoted to CEO. At the end of his first year as CEO, Phaidon reported full-year revenue of £70 million, an increase of 41% compared to the previous year. This past April, Youtan oversaw the acquisition of Phaidon by Quilvest Private Equity.

“Having a united global team with a genuine drive and ambition that every day makes our vision one step closer to reality is in my view very special, and that is the bit that gives me the greatest sense of pride,” said Youtan.”

His work philosophy is, “Better Never Stops,” and counts himself as fortunate to be surrounded by people at Phaidon International who are constantly striving to do better every day.
