Steve Morrissey

Founder and CEO

Steve Morrissey is committed to helping clients identify agile leaders who can successfully drive the transformation necessary to create more customer-centric organizations. He has placed senior level executives in a broad range of disciplines, including Chief Executive, Chief Operating, and Chief Financial Officers, as well as Senior Marketing, Sales, and Human Resources executives, focusing solely on the Consumer vertical. Steve’s clients range from entrepreneurial startups to family owned businesses to publicly traded, Fortune 500 companies.

In addition to providing Executive Search services to his clients, he also supports his clients in the continuous development of high performing team programs and helps his clients to rapidly align and engage their teams around a set of strategic choices that will drive inspirational results and create a legacy outcome for all involved. Steve has more than 18 years of experience in professional recruitment and senior-level executive search and talent management.

Before starting Perpetual, Steve enjoyed a fourteen-year career with a global executive search firm beginning in his native UK and relocated in New York in 2005. Throughout his career he has focused on placing marketing and sales talent to help his clients successfully drive consumer engagement resulting in substantial brand growth.

Prior to the corporate world, Steve was appointed and earned an eight-year commission as a Royal Marines Commando Officer in the UK. Such early experiences helped him forge the necessary entrepreneurial qualities of team-leadership, improvisation, tenacity, an appetite for calculated risk and a sense of humor in adversity. 

He lives in Darien, CT and shares the demands, with his wife Charlotte, of parenting two very active, growing teenage boys. Steve also tries desperately hard to hang onto a zest for an active, outdoor life pursuing winter camping, hiking and enjoying time on his boat.
