Sue Wallis

Managing Director

Sue is the ‘Wallis’ behind Sewell Wallis, and is the owner and MD of this fabulous business. Joining the recruitment world over 30 years ago in London, she moved to Yorkshire and joined Sewell Moorhouse in 2006 as regional director, promoted to MD of that entire brand 8 years later. In 2017, along with two of her team, Kayley Haythornthwaite and Lucy Regan, Sue completed an MBO, splitting the Sewell Moorhouse brand from the rest of the business and rebranding as Sewell Wallis.

When she’s not at work, on the phone, driving to a meeting, coaching one of her staff or having a lie down in a dark room to recover from all of these things, you’ll find her with her husband John, and her beautiful Ridgeback Bronn on a long country work with a cheeky pub lunch in the middle. She’s a Londoner at heart, but has never regretted her move to this beautiful part of the world.

What’s your Sewell Wallis speciality? I look after the business and our brilliant team, along with recruiting for Senior HR and Exec roles.

What’s your favourite thing about your job? The people, without a doubt. Every one of them is an individual and they’re all brilliant in their own way. Also, everyone says it, but every day is always something different

What is your biggest fear? Losing my voice!
