Chris McCullagh

Originally from Essex, England, Chris joined T+O+M in 2018 to spearhead our new commerce and industry desk, bringing more than 15 years international search and selection experience. During this time, he has worked on successful new office start-ups, led growing multi-functional teams and divisions, started, developed and maintained key client relationships and major accounts, and has a wealth of experience performing contingent search and client retained assignments for single and multiple hire projects. 

Chris now places senior finance (Head of, GM, Controller and CFO/FD) and Strategy (Senior Manager  roles with clients across a broad range of industries, including construction, telecommunications and FMCG. 

Chris is held with high regard by his clients and peers for his focus on his customers and the long-term approach he takes to building lasting business relationships.

Chris is passionate about the human element of his role and loves the fact that what he does genuinely has a positive, and sometimes lifechanging, effect on people’s lives.

Outside of work, Chris loves spending time with his family (partner Bec and twin daughters Alice and Georgia) and enjoying the outdoor lifestyle of Sydney – particularly swimming, cycling and running and taking part in Triathlons. In his rare down time, he can be found enjoying too much food and red wine and playing the guitar.


If Chris could spend a year learning a new skill it would be: to perfect the art of wine making.
