28.09.2015 - CONSORT Groups international projects

On 15-17 September, Hamburg (Germany) welcomed the International Executive Search Federation’s Annual General Meeting which highly appreciated the executive search cross-border projects delivered by CONSORT’s Consultant Elena Kvartalnova. Earlier this year, Elena successfully filled the position of the Head of Russian Branch Office for a large American company – a manufacturer of garden tools and equipment, and was recently instrumental in finding a CEO for Ukraine for our IESF Germany partner’s client.

In both search mandates the clients expressed their opinion that the candidates selected by Elena Kvartalnova were probably the best in their respective international networks that spanned dozens of countries.

CONSORT Group’s activities also received positive recognition in the IESF’s sub-regional group called HANSA. This project’s name is a reference to the Middles Ages Hanseatic League that was a commercial confederation of Baltic Sea merchant guilds and their market towns. IESF HANSA is built around the concept of business co-operation between IESF partners from Germany, Poland, Sweden, Finland and Russia. CONSORT Group (and Russia) is represented by Consort Petersburg’s Managing Partner Yury Mikhailov who has demonstrated the highest marketing activity and, besides, completed several cross-borders that came from IESF’s Swedish, Finnish and German partners.

IESF – International Executive Search Federation ( – is the largest retained executive search group in the world identifying talent and leadership in 75 offices and 22 countries globally. CONSORT Group (under IESF Russia brand) has been its exclusive partner for Russia/CIS since 2005.
