Global recruiting and staffing firm Heidrick & Struggles (NASDAQ: HSII) last week announced the opening of an office in Bogotá to primarily serve clients throughout Colombia, Ecuador, Panamá, and Central America. The firm also has Latin American offices in Brazil and México.
The new office will be led by Roberto Hall and four other colleagues and is located in the Teleport office park in Bogotá’s Usaquén area, near the Hacienda Santa Barbara.
Hall was most recently with Odgers Berndtson where he focused on the mining and petroleum sectors. Previously he launched Bogotá daily newspaper El Tiempo’s elempleo.com job board, and other employment ventures such as hoytrabajas.com, tamplace.com, Protalento, and Talentu.
“For nearly 70 years, we have provided our clients with diversified solutions to help build strong leadership teams globally and our expanded presence in Latin America signals our commitment to bring solutions that support our clients’ strategic growth in the region,” said Tom Murray, Global Managing Partner of Executive Search. “Our presence reflects the increasing demand for innovative talent and leadership counsel in Central and South America, and with our depth and breadth of executive search experience, we will better assist Latin American organizations.
“We are committed to serving our clients across the region and opening an office in Colombia was the ideal opportunity to address the significant demand for in-country and multinational executives in the region and Central America,” said Roberto Hall, leader of the Colombia office.
