Archived: AltoPartners Adds Partner Firms in Korea and Switzerland : Global Footprint Increases to 53 offices across 33 Countries

iCrowdNewswire - May 27, 2016




The global footprint of AltoPartners, the entrepreneurial international alliance of independent executive search firms and leadership consultants, is flourishing through the addition of two new international partner firms; reinforcing AltoPartners on-the-ground presence across 53 offices in 33 countries. AltoPartners proudly announces that Pathfinder, a Seoul-based Korean firm, and MPB Recruitment Group AG, a Swiss firm with offices in Basel, Bern and Zurich, have joined the global AltoPartners alliance by becoming exclusive alliance member firms.


The business development opportunities that exist in both Korea and Switzerland are of strategic importance for existing clients and partners in the alliance. “The strength of the AltoPartners alliance is the quality of our local firms – firms with solid reputations, high assignment completion rates and proven added value to clients. Our partners in both Korea and Switzerland embody this for us,” said Stephen Dallamore, AltoPartners Global Chairman.


Kim Jaeho, CEO at Pathfinder in Korea, on joining AltoPartners: “Many Korean companies are expanding their businesses globally and we are confident that there will be many business opportunities with our new AltoPartners’ friends. Our Korean team has vast experience working globally and we can generate interesting synergy and opportunities with the AltoPartners family. We are very excited to work together to grow our brand.” 


Helmut Zimmerli-Menzi, MPB People Recruitment Group Managing Partner in Switzerland, says: “We are excited about joining the AltoPartners alliance and the opportunities that now exist for us to offer even better support to our customers in demanding, international search assignments. Due to our new global partners, we can now guarantee the same quality in the search and selection on a global level as we have become renowned for within Switzerland over the last 30 years.”


Through strategic and targeted market scanning, AltoPartners is actively seeking new member firms to work alongside like-minded entrepreneurial search professionals, each of whom is a respected expert in their own market. The AltoPartners global approach is markedly different to other international networks, and offers all of the advantages of a global network for clients, without any of the disadvantages.
