15.04.2016 - IESF: number of cross-border projects to increase

14-15 April 2016 CONSORT Group’s senior management – Michael Bogdanov and Julia Balakina – attended the annual European meeting of the International Executive Search Federation (IESF) where our group – under the IESF Russia brand – represents Russia/CIS.
The key focus of the Warsaw forum was increasing partner firms’ efforts to get search mandates from their clients across the IESF network. Each IESF partner presented one of their clients who has had business activities in the IESF countries and briefed the forum’s participants on what is being done or will be done to persuade that client to use the IESF search network’s services.
TOPOS Germany partner’s experience was of particular interest: when they offered their executive search services to a large manufacturer of gardening tools and equipment, they heard back from a potential client that they only required a top manager in Ukraine. IESF Russia successfully completed this search assignment. As a result, the client requested IESF to fill similar executive roles in its branch offices in Russia, Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic.

Three new members from UK, Portugal and Romania joined the IESF at the Warsaw meeting
