Our Leadership Team


Daniel Ostrowski

Managing Director

Daniel founded the business in 2012 with the vision of developing a recruitment company that treated its staff, customers and candidates differently. Having worked himself up from recruiter to manager to Managing Director, Daniel understands the value of fostering good relationships and taking longer term approaches which benefit all parties. A proud father and Liverpool fan, Daniel is one of the rare MDs who is always available for his staff and customers.


Mark Raven

Finance Director

Mark has been involved in Woodrow Mercer since its formation in 2012. He is an experienced Finance Director, having worked in a permanent and interim capacity at this level for over 25 years. In recent years he has also recruited for a number of large corporate and SME clients at both FD and FC level. Fiercely competitive, he loves the challenge of a Tough Mudder.


Andrew Heggie

Commercial Director

Andrew is the sort of person who is a magnet for accolades. Nicest person, best recruiter, sharp businessman, Andrew has shown over his 10 year recruitment career that there are many strings to his bow. After co-founding our London office in 2014, Andrew has been a guiding influence and inspirational leader. Most recently Andrew has been promoted to Commercial Director and will be involved in the strategic direction of the business.


David Fleckner

Director of Digital Learning

David is one of the many success stories that Woodrow Mercer has produced. Having joined 4 years ago as a Healthcare recruiter, David quickly showed his potential for leadership and within 12 months was leading our Healthcare team. David is now the Director of our growing Learning Team


Matt Drinkwater

Director Technology

Matt is a co-founder and Regional Director of the London office, which opened in January 2014. As one of Woodrow Mercer's senior statesmen, Matt has been working exclusively within Testing recruitment since 2006. Outside of work you will most likely find Matt on the badminton court swatting away a shuttle or two, or following the trials and tribulations of his beloved Aston Villa. He is an eternal optimist!‚Äč
