Nigeria Joins IRC Alliance
Leading Edge Consulting based in Lagos, Nigeria, joins IRC Global Executive Search Partners.
“Nigeria brings our global alliance to 79 offices cementing IRC’s position in top five executive search firms globally. We’re pleased that we can offer our clients first class executive search services in one of the most important economies on the African continent. Besides giving us a stronger footprint in Africa the Nigerian office is bringing deep sector expertise in a range of industries, including Financial Services, Industrial, Professional Services, FMCG and Energy,” says Patrick Westerburger, President of the Board of IRC Global Executive Search Partners.
Dr Ije Jidenma, Managing Director & CEO of Leading Edge Consulting, adds on this: “Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa with the population of 170 million. Considering continued growth and diversification in areas such as oil production and agriculture, there is a vast potential for cross border talent search. Our firm also recognises increasing cross border activities particularly across West Africa, East Africa and other parts of the world where Nigerian companies increasingly have footprints. All these developments have immense potential expanding the cross border executive search requirements.
Becoming a member firm with shared purpose and values is something we greatly cherish as an opportunity not only to uphold the tenets in professional practice but also a veritable platform to contribute to thought leadership in this vital area. Being globally connected and locally committed at the cutting edge brings unquantifiable value to our clients and to the environment from which we operate.”
