Pedersen & Partners Continues Latin American Expansion
Executive Search firm Pedersen & Partners is extending its coverage of the Latin American region by opening its newest office in Santiago, Chile.
Claudio González-Carrasco will be the Country Manager for the newly established office. Santiago will mark the 5th wholly owned office in the Americas for Pedersen & Partners, with offices also located in Bogota, Lima, São Paulo and Toronto.
Mr González-Carrasco brings to the firm more than a decade of experience in the executive search and financial services industries across Europe and Latin America, having held senior positions in the UK and the Netherlands and had regional management responsibilities in Latin America, with an emphasis on Chile, Colombia, Peru and Brazil. Most recently, Mr González-Carrasco held the position of partner, responsible for Latin America, at an international executive search firm where he completed numerous cross-border searches throughout Latin and North America.
“I’m pleased to join Pedersen & Partners and to work with them on building their presence in Chile and continuously throughout Latin America. Pedersen & Partners is a trusted advisor to their clients, and has a known reputation worldwide for their high standards and unsurpassed knowledge of emerging markets. I look forward to continuing to provide high level executive search with the reach and strength of their global support and know-how,” said Mr González-Carrasco
Overseeing the opening of the new Santiago office will be Carlos Recarte O'Ryan, Client Partner and Head of the Retail Practice Group at Pedersen & Partners. Mr González-Carrasco will lead the team on the ground in Chile and will be the primary point of contact for the new office.
Mr Recarte O'Ryan commented: “Chile is a significant reinforcement of our presence in Latin America and a strategic hub to develop our business in the region; it is considered one of South America's most stable and prosperous nations with a constantly growing demand for executive search. We strongly believe in the value of being able to provide on-the-ground support and build close ties with our clients, and I am delighted to add the coverage of Chile and to have a professional like Claudio based locally.”
