About Rosaleen Blair CBE

Rosaleen is a passionate entrepreneur and philanthropist. In 1996 she founded AMS to transform the way that blue-chip multinationals attract, engage and retain top talent. Today AMS is a global business, with 5,000 colleagues in over 90 countries. In 2018, the company was sold to OMERS Private Equity for £820 million and in late 2019 Rosaleen stepped down from her executive role and became chair.

In addition, Rosaleen invests in and advises numerous companies and organisations. She is a non-executive director of Kainos Group, chair of Everywoman, a coach and mentor to several entrepreneurs and small businesses, and a longstanding supporter of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program.  Rosaleen has a strong philanthropic agenda; she supports a number of not-for-profit initiatives both financially and with her time. Notably, she is chair of the London Irish Centre and a fellow of the Prince’s Trust. She is passionate about creating opportunities and helping people to make the most of them. 

Rosaleen is recognised as an industry leader and entrepreneur, winning numerous awards including Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the Year (2007) and EY London Entrepreneur of the Year (2006).  She was awarded a CBE for services to business and recruitment in 2017.
