Ashley Hobkinson


Ash focusses on Essenta’s consumer portfolio, with particular focus on retail, consumer, travel, leisure and hospitality, encompassing all aspects of executive leadership.  Ten of his last twenty years have been spent working in and enjoying Cape Town and New York.  Ash’s experience developing new markets across search allows him to deliver a bespoke client-centric search experience matched to client requirements. This is underpinned with the rigour, process and delivery focus from his time with one of the top-tier global executive search firms. Travel remains a focus for Ash outside of Essenta as well as the occasional bike ride, rugby match and the odd bit of paddle boarding. Finally, don’t get him started on the subject of old Land Rovers!
