HornbyChapman is a specialist recruitment firm covering the asset servicing industry, and operating across the US, Asia and Europe. Paul Chapman and Victoria Hornby formed HornbyChapman in December 2006. Both had identified a need within the asset servicing market for a diligent, experienced firm which could bring added insight, professionalism and integrity to the hiring process at senior level. They therefore brought together their complementary skills sets from senior positions in the industry to form HornbyChapman. On October 1st 2013, HornbyChapman took over SkillsHub Limited, a highly regarded contract and interim recruitment firm which had been founded by George Stavrinidis to broaden their product offering in response to changing industry and client demands.
