Bev Setterfield

Managing Director

In 1987 Bev joined the world of recruitment and with her passion and success for all things recruitment, it was inevitable that one day she would open her own agency.


Bev founded DB’s in 1999 in High Wycombe, and quickly opened a branch in Reading the year after.  She planned to expand to ten branches, but delightedly found herself pregnant with twins, so that scuppered that idea!   When DB started, email, the internet and mobile phones hadn’t reached our offices, so we faxed CV’s to all of our clients – sometimes 100’s of pages.  The fax machine would often stop in the middle and we’d have to start all over again!  How recruitment has changed!


Bev believes in surrounding herself with a great team of people who not only bring talent, tenacity and skill to DB, but people she can learn from too!  We have little staff turnover – staff have mostly been with us for over 10 years, and it’s a happy, lively office.  As well as her MD duties, Bev does permanent recruitment too.  Her passion for recruitment has not diminished.  No two days are the same.  Bev feels blessed to have such great clients, candidates and staff.

When not at work, Bev can be found walking her dogs, and enjoying family life to the full.
