The Team

Mark Townsend

Managing Recruitment Consultant

I am a managing consultant at KDR Talent Solutions Group, building bespoke talent solutions for our customers which ultimately helps candidates find their dream role within data, technology and analytics.

I started my recruitment career at KDR back in 2010, since then I’ve exclusively recruited in the data & analytics domain. Leaving KDR in 2016 I joined another niche data & analytics recruitment agency, 3 years later, I’m back and focus on building bespoke talent solutions for clients. I help solve problems such as lack of diversity in your talent pipeline, scaling your teams quickly and flexibly, and adding value to organisations by leveraging our community and network of CDOs.

I’m also the host of KDRs podcast series ‘inside data’ take a look

A bit more about me

🍷 My favourite drink is latte in the morning… and a Gin & Tonic or a nice glass of red (or 2!) in the evening.

🎥 My favourite film is The Crow or Pulp Fiction. It’s a tough decision!

🎵 My music taste is quite random from Gregory Porter to Survivor to the likes of John Mayer.

👀 My nickname is Towns or Townsend

🏏 I’m a Wannbe Cricket and hockey player and I have 2 beautiful little girls, Giorgia and Hollie.
