Russell Thompson

Group Managing Director

​Hi, I’m Russell and I have been MD of LMA since June 2005. Recruitment was actually my third stab at a career. I was an accountant and an investment banker before I consciously (which is unusual!) decided that the staffing industry would better suit my skill set. Since then I haven’t looked back and I love this industry as much now as I did 21 years ago when I entered it. I spent a very enjoyable and successful time at Impellam Group as a Divisional Director before buying a stake in LMA 10 years ago.

Over the last decade, my team has really taken LMA to a great place. I love them and I love my job. I never get that dreaded Sunday night feeling – and that’s our goal for all our clients, candidates and staff. To make work an absolute pleasure by placing great candidates with great companies.

It’s all about finding that balance between fun and hard work. I think we’ve nailed it and I truly believe LMA is a staffing business which is a cut above the majority of our competitors. We are utterly ethical, professional and excellent at what we do!
