An executive search firm and its CEO are to be featured in a special book celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
Oliver Sanderson and its CEO Natasha Makhijani will be in the illustrated coffee-table book – Her Majesty the Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album – celebrating the record-breaking 70-year reign of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
Published by St James’s House, the album will be released on 2 June 2022, just in time for the extended national celebration during the early June bank holiday weekend.
Makhijani and Oliver Sanderson were invited to feature in a section on organisations aligned with the Queen’s values, having been selected for making a “transformational contribution” to the British business sphere, a company statement said.
Makhijani expressed her pride and gratitude for the prestigious feature. “This is a great honour for me and my team,” she said. “We’ve had a very successful year, but this tops it all!”
She continued: “Being a British Asian, my life has been shaped by our Royal Family. In particular, I have always been inspired by our Queen – her values, her global presence, her exceptional work ethic and the way that she has always upheld service, even in the most challenging circumstances. There are no better role models for young women.”
“As an Asian woman CEO in a traditionally male-dominated industry, Makhijani’s journey has been uniquely challenging,” the company statement said. “But her success represents a powerful example of modern multicultural Britain.”
