Penrhyn International Announces Anders Borg as recipient of 2007 Chairman’s Award


Penrhyn International Announces Anders Borg as recipient of 2007 Chairman’s Award.

Penrhyn International, a global leader in retained executive search with presence in 21 geographies and annual revenues exceeding US$ 40 million, announced that Mr Anders Borg has been elected to receive the 2007 Chairman’s Award for his outstanding contribution to the organization. Mr. Anders Borg, President of Hansar International, Brussels, Belgium was selected as the 2007 recipient of the Chairman's Award at the Penrhyn International annual global meeting in Düsseldorf, Germany. The Chairman’s Award was first conceived by Mr Skott Burkland who was then Chairman of Penrhyn International from 2003-2006. It is to recognize the Partner who made the most significant contributions to Penrhyn International during the year.

Mr Borg led the Penrhyn International new membership activity in 2006-2007 coordinating the total global activity and guiding it resulting in the recruitment of 7 new firms in that year. Together with 2006 year being very good in economic terms for all the members, the new recruitments led to Penrhyn growing by 50% in revenue terms. Mr Borg added “It is also worth mentioning that it was not a mass recruitment but a number of several much focused actions in key business areas of the world. I relied heavily on the regional heads of those activities and, as always is the case, I could not have done it on my own. It was a matter of getting people to work together - encouraging, supporting and motivating them to move ahead.”

Mr Borg is one of the longest serving partners of Penrhyn International and has been responsible for recruiting many of the other member firms. He served as the Penrhyn Chairman for 3 years from 1994 -1997. He currently holds the Treasurer position and has been serving in that role for the past 10 years. He had also been elected into various key committees over the years and has served tirelessly with full commitment.
Mr Borg started his firm Hansar International (www.hansar.com) in 1986. Most of his firm’s work is transnational with 70% in Europe, Middle East and Africa and almost 30% truly global. "It is an honor to be chosen by my peers to receive this prestigious award" said Mr. Anders Borg. "I look forward to further grow the Penrhyn International presence across the world."

Mr Borg is currently the Vice Chairman of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (www.aesc.org), the worldwide association for retained search industry. He also serves as the Chairman for AESC Europe, Middle East & Africa. He added “I was an 'international member' while the organization was still a US based association. I then got involved in the setting up of Europe when AESC transformed into a truly global organization and has been on the EMEA board in several functions since the 90's. In addition to the Europe involvement, I have the last 4 or 5 years served on the global board.”
