Benedict Santos

/ Manager

Benedict Santos is a Senior Consultant within Madison Pearl’s Banking and Finance Team currently leading and managing the Private Equity, Investment Banking Advisory and Real Estate desk.

Raised and educated in Middle East, Benedict has lived in between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia for the past 18 years and has developed great knowledge and cultural understanding of the Middle East, enabling him to develop solid relationships with local candidates and clients alike.

He started his recruitment career in Bahrain as a Research Associate in 2012, with a major regional firm and was focused in servicing clients, local and international firms within the Asset Management and Private Equity space, across their front, middle and back office teams.

With strong search fundamentals and focus, Benedict rapidly progressed from a predominantly research-focused role to managing a book of key clients and expanding his coverage to servicing international investment banks with a focus on Investment Banking Coverage and Product/Business Lines.

His background in Market Research with a Global Research entity, prior to his recruitment experience, has enabled Benedict to develop into a unique search consultant with the ability to deliver on both retained and contingent projects.
