Kit Taylor


Kit leads the psd Sport Practice, specialising in Executive appointments across the Sport, Entertainment and Gaming sectors.

With over 20 years’ experience in executive search, leadership assessment and talent acquisition, Kit has an outstanding knowledge of these sectors, consumer trends and the ever-changing needs of clients particularly with regards to commercial growth, advancing technology and organisational transformation.  He has personally delivered a wide range of Chair, INED, C-level and senior functional (Operations, Commercial, Finance) appointments and has become a trusted partner to many organisations. Key to this success has been a strong and broad personal network, exceptional levels of market intelligence and the highly effective utilisation of the Group’s wider networks to provide diverse and challenging shortlists.

A graduate of Loughborough University, prior to specialising in executive search, Kit held several senior management roles within the health and fitness sector, with both premium operators and a vocational training and development provider.

I enjoy challenging clients thinking by identifying candidates from a broad range of backgrounds with highly transferable skills to make a unique difference and drive business growth. Playing a part in the subsequent success of that business is hugely rewarding.

What clients say

Kit rapidly built a strong partnership with us and the results (new CEO, Commercial Director, Chairman) are testimony to his success. Looking at the new governance and leadership in British Cycling I am confident we can become the best in class governing body that we intend to be. I am equally confident that Kit has played a huge role in making that happen.
