A.T. Kearney Executive Search Announces New Management Team
Location: North America, South America, UK, Other Europe, Au
A.T. Kearney Executive Search has announced it has formed an executive committee to manage the newly independent company. The firm also announced it has established new offices in Moscow, Russia and Vienna, Austria. A.T. Kearney Executive Search was acquired in January by an investment group led by international search executive Ed Kelley.
Members of the executive committee and their areas of responsibility include:
Walt Ames: North Asia
Steve Fisher: North America
Richard Hutchinson: CFO
Ed Kelley: CEO
Ray Kelly: South Asia
Beth Knight: Western Europe
Paul Ray, Jr.: Specialty Practices, Key Accounts and Latin America
Georg Unger: Eastern Europe
The company has also formed a management advisory council comprising 15 executives from across all areas of the company who will advise the executive committee and board of directors.
Since the transaction, the company has acquired the entire operation of Management Solutions, a leading executive search firm in Moscow. The firm’s new Vienna office has already successfully established itself in the market by securing several high-profile search assignments. The two key professionals in the new Moscow office are Maxim Chouvaev and Sergei Serdioukov; the Vienna office is led by Georg Unger. The company also plans to continue pursuing additional acquisitions that fit its growth strategy.
“Our new independence, combined with our outstanding management team and our service-oriented, partnership culture, positions us well to offer our clients innovative leadership solutions,” stated Kelley. “We will continue to move our business forward in ways that deliver effective alternatives to current executive search options, offering a more personalized, solutions-oriented approach than is now available in the marketplace.”
Kelley is recognized internationally as a leader and visionary in the executive search industry. Kelley was educated in the United States and holds both British and U.S. citizenship. With more than 30 years of experience in the consulting and executive search industry, he worked for Korn/Ferry for 15 years, serving as head of its financial services practice in Europe and its UK operations, and later as president of its European operations and a member of the company’s board of directors. At Korn/Ferry, he was also responsible for managing the merger of Carre Orban & Partners/Paul Ray, at that time the largest merger in the search industry. In addition, he served as a partner with Booz Allen Hamilton, working in Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
Kelley said A.T. Kearney Executive Search overall enjoyed significant growth in 2005, and that the upward momentum continues to build. “The fact that the company did so well in 2005 is noteworthy, particularly due to the changes it went through. We are confident that our vision of creating a fully-integrated, global alternative to current models – together with our strong management team – will be a tremendous asset for both current and future clients.”
