SAN DIEGO, CA;  June 20, 2014 – IRC Global Executive Search Partners, a leading collective of retained executive search partners serving more than 2,000 client companies worldwide, has significantly expanded its client service capabilities with the addition of eight new, world-class boutique executive search firms as members.  These new member firms now extend our global reach to talent markets in over 40 countries across six continents.

The following members have joined IRC Global Executive Search Partners since January 2014:

▪  IRC Spain

▪  IRC Switzerland

▪  IRC Japan

▪  IRC New Zealand

▪  IRC United States (New York – A real estate & investment management focused firm)

▪  IRC Kazakhstan

▪  IRC Argentina & Chile

▪  IRC Ireland

The addition of these new member firms effectively increases The QualiFind Group’s global network to just over 75 offices in more than 40 countries on six continents.  IRC Global Executive Search Partners has already ranked among the world’s 10 largest retained executive search firms with more than 300 search consultants across almost all industry segments according to Bloomberg Businessweek and other sources.

“Our new members have brought a strong geographic balance to the IRC partnership.  We are now a global leader in client coverage across Asia Pacific, the Americas as well as Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA),” said Malcolm Duncan, President of the IRC Executive Board. “Each of our new members brings deep insight, perspective and market intelligence to IRC clients and are committed to IRC’s client-centered model.”

Duncan said that IRC’s new members have long been market leaders in their respective regions and industry market spaces and are already providing global leadership to clients across industry sectors.  The QualiFind Group’s retained executive search practice – ExeQfind is a great example of regional market leadership.  ExeQfind’s leadership mirrors the bicultural landscape of the talent markets in the US and Latin America.  Partner – Warren Carter serves the executive search needs in the US market, Mexico and Latin America from offices in the US, Mexico and Panama.  This type of regional leadership embodies our commitment to being “Globally Connected and Locally Committed, added Duncan.

“Our partner in New York is now leading our global Real Estate practice and our new member in Japan is currently working with me on a Country Manager search for a major industrial company,” Duncan explained. “This is the kind of immediate value our clients want and expect from IRC members. IRC aims to provide our clients with a great service from industry specialists who have committed to providing the best results for clients. We don’t just promise that, our processes work towards that and we measure and report back to our clients against these outcomes.”

With IRC’s recent expansion across EMEA, the firm has become one of the world’s largest retained firms in the region. “Our new IRC colleagues bring tremendous sector knowledge to the partnership,” said Patrick Westerburger, member of the IRC Executive Board. “Our top EMEA consultants are specialized in sectors such as Life Sciences, Industry, Real Estate and Fast-Moving Consumer Goods,” he added.

“Many of our members are benefitting from the positive economic climate and it is great to see that our new consultants are already working on cross-border search assignments with their IRC peers in other countries. In this way we can really add value and exceptional market connectivity to our global clients,” Westerburger said.

Each of the new IRC members brings exceptional client engagement experience and promises a commitment to collaborate with search consultants across the firm’s global footprint, thereby elevating the vision, resources and insight required to connect IRC clients with world-class management leaders across functional leadership roles.
