Antal Partners With USA-based Worldbridge Partners
Global recruiter Antal International has announced a partnership agreement with USA-based executive search firm Worldbridge Partners.
The joint group will now encompass more than 137 offices and over 800 consultants and give access to clients and candidates in 35 countries, including the USA, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Panama.
“We’re already well-established in Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia and Africa and recently moved into the Latin American market with a new office in Mexico,” said Antal International’s Founder and Chairman Tony Goodwin. “Partnering with Worldbridge Partners gives us that next key piece in the global jigsaw – the USA and Central America. And it’s a vital piece given the fact that the US still accounts for over 25% of all world trade export and there are consequently literally thousands of US companies looking for the talent necessary to fuel overseas expansion.”
Doug Bugie, President of Antal International Network, said: “Antal has built and continues to build a global platform which has always emphasised the rapidly developing markets such as Russia, Poland, India and China to name a few. The company has a combined 80 years of trading experience just in these countries alone. Not many, if any of our competition can make that statement. Just in these 4 key countries Antal has over 400 consultants. Every day our consultants around the world sell our range services and promote the Antal brand.
“Now having Worldbridge as a partner, we have filled the gap in the world’s most vibrant and growing market – America. Worldbridge Partners is one of the leading search and recruitment organizations in Northern America, with capabilities to extend in Central and South America as well. In addition, Worldbridge is a cutting edge large scale solutions arena adding to its pinpoint executive search service. We believe the combination will be very dynamic and surely interesting to our hundreds of multinational clients”.
“As an industry leader in recruitment, Antal International is committed to innovation and integrity in its operations around the world,” said WorldBridge’s Managing Partner Jack Downing. “WorldBridge has the same commitment, as well as the right combination of people, tools, processes and recruitment expertise to back it up. It’s a commitment that drives lasting value, and one that our clients have come to expect.”
