Agilium Worldwide Elects New Global Chair
Agilium Worldwide, an international group of independent, owner managed retained executive search firms, has announced the election of Pedro J. Nieto, Founding Partner of Madrid-based executive search firm Ellis & Partners, as its new global Chairperson.
Mr Nieto, who served on the Agilium Worldwide Executive Committee as director, Europe, Middle East and Africa from 2012 to 2014, replaces outgoing Chair Xavier de Zamacona of DeZaSearch, Mexico.
"I am honoured to have been elected Chairman of Agilium Worldwide," said Mr Nieto. “I look forward to working with our Regional Directors and our Executive Director, Malcolm
Coates of MC Consulting International, Paris/London, to continue with our global expansion and further develop our services: local approach with a global perspective.”
He added: “Founded as the World Search Group in 1984, we are now 35 members in 34 countries worldwide and still growing. In March 2010, we changed our name to Agilium
Worldwide - Executive Search Group to better reflect our key characteristics and relevancy in the new global business environment.
"One of the main challenges that we are facing is to assert the Agilium name, which in Latin transmits the idea of agility. Agilium members are particularly and decisively adaptable to our client’s needs, detecting talent locally and globally. We simplify our client’s former task of contracting several executive search firms worldwide.”
Prior to founding Ellis & Partners, Mr Nieto held several positions at Prodesfarma and Boehringer Mannheim-Roche Diagnostics, was appointed general manager at Grupo Vita and later held the position of CEO at Laboratorios Salvat. He is currently a member of the board of Lopez de Haro Bank and President´s Advisor of Banco Desarrollo Industrial (Dominican Republic).
