IRC Global Executive Search Partners Alliance Adds New Austria-based Member Firm
“Collective brain power and ideas will define IRC’s future growth and development,” says Sylvia MacArthur, President of the IRC Executive Board. “We’re an expanding global alliance of successful, entrepreneurial business leaders, which anticipates and responds to changes in the Search market. We are delighted to welcome Austria-based Kaufmann-Linke HR Solutions GmbH to IRC, as the firm strengthens the alliance’s strong forward direction, and expansion.”
Rita Kaufmann-Linke, Vienna-based Kaufmann-Linke HR Solutions Managing Partner, explains she founded the company to “provide clients with a reliable business partner with in-depth experience in finding candidates for key management and leadership roles.”
The firms’ practice focus comprises four separate, yet interlinked areas: executive search, HR and management consulting; executive assessments; and executive coaching (leadership, and change). As Ms. Kaufmann-Linke explains: “We want to grow the executive search segment of the business – and that’s one reason we’re happy to have been accepted as a new member firm with the IRC alliance. “
Ms. Kaufmann-Linke is a former Executive HR Director of multinational companies, holding University Master degrees in Natural Science, Economy (MBA) and Law (MLE) and a MSc in systemic coaching. She is a certified systemic consultant for organizational development, and experienced in consulting, industry, politics, NGO’s and public administration in Europe and the USA.
“At Kaufmann-Linke HR Solutions, we are proud our clients say we speak their language,” says Ms. Kaufmann-Linke. “We offer deep HR expertise and an international background – our membership in the IRC global alliance means we can now provide an extended global network and industry knowledge – all with a global executive search boutique flair.”
