Meet the team
FOUNDER & MD
With a solid background in marketing, Ali founded DNA Recruit in 2008, and has grown a business dedicated to making a difference to people’s lives. In his spare time, Ali’s a sports fanatic, training and taking part in ridiculously hard core events like The Norfolk Superhero. When he’s not training, he’s spending time with his wife and three children.
Client Services & Planning
Dave is a director here at DNA Recruit, and has a strong pedigree in placing senior suits and planners into some of London’s finest digital and creative agencies. If he’s not in the office, you’ll find him hacking round a golf course or cheering on the mighty Saints FC.
Natasha has worked in marketing agencies and as a head-hunter for nearly 10 years. She’s somewhat a nomad and calls both London and Amsterdam home. When she’s not cycling around the canals and running round her beloved Vondelpark, she can be found singing and producing music. She’s even had radio play on Radio 1 and Kiss FM.

Head of Marketing
Before overseeing DNA’s social media and marketing channels she mastered an MA in Contemporary Art and managed events for the commercial art world. If you don’t see Lisa at various London gigs, gallery openings or longboarding through the royal parks, she’s out capturing moments in Hertfordshire’s countryside with an iPhone and coffee in hand.
Associate Director - Strategy & Planning
Lisa comes from a creative media and publishing background and has extensive experience recruiting across a broad range of creative, digital and marketing roles. Finding her calling in planning and strategy, she's been pivotal in connecting the best talent with leading agencies and blue-chip organisations. When she’s not match-making in the planning community, you will find her painting, gardening and baking with Radio 4 in the background.

In her spare time, Leila enjoys spending time with her two daughters, tasting all types of gastronomy that London has to offer or trying to hit a ball on Ealing golf course.
