Meet Oliver Rolfe, the Founder and CEO of Spartan International, which specializes in building, creating, and assisting new departments, divisions, and teams within the Global Equity space. This comprises market analysis, market data, high caliber and seniority hires, and the ability to connect with individuals on a professional and personal basis to support the development of companies that Spartan assists.
Oliver specializes in Life & Career Guidance and Global Equities and Investment Banking recruitment. He pursued Accounting and Finance and started his career within a leading global accounting firm. Later in 2003, Oliver sought a new challenge and joined S3, one of the biggest recruiting firms in Europe, which marked his entry into the executive search arena. Since then, he has spent over two decades successfully focusing on mid-to senior-level professionals with an outstanding track record in Global Equities and Investment Banking.
In 2010, Oliver established Spartan Partnership, and later Spartan International Executive Search, a Global Equities and Investment Banking Executive Search firm.
“After working for a few top companies within recruitment and search, none of them did what I always knew was needed and knew what was best for the industry; for the individuals, and not only for making money. In an industry that focuses on and cares for the careers of so many top professionals globally, you would have thought that caring for their well-being and the well-being of their families should come first. This is certainly not the case from what myself and my team have seen and experienced. That is why I created Spartan International Executive Search and, laterally, Spartan International Group,”- he explained.
Oliver published his first book ‘The Survivor’s Guide to Your Career Today,’ which is a must-have career guide for 16-25 years old. His second book, “The Holistic Guide to Your Health and Wellbeing Today,” is out now and was ranked 41st on the Amazon Best-selling charts. Oliver has also been featured in several prestigious newspapers throughout the world, including the New York Times, Bloomberg, The Trade News, EuroMoney, The Gulf Times, and many more. Over 20,000 people follow Oliver and Spartan on social media, and they also have a daily blog that receives 100,000’s of monthly views, a newsletter with over 14,000 subscribers, and a Spartan International YouTube channel.
