The Caldwell Partners International Expands Global Presence to New Zealand
Retained executive search firm The Caldwell Partners International Inc. announced an expansion into the Australia/New Zealand market by forming a strategic affiliation with Simon Monks, Nick Scarlett and their teams, based out of Auckland, New Zealand.
Under the affiliation agreement, the team in New Zealand will operate exclusively under the Caldwell Partners brand and will have access to Caldwell Partners’ proprietary search methodology, processes, training and certain other intellectual property. As a result, search execution will be performed consistently and seamlessly across all regions, providing a fully unified offering internationally to all clients.
“We are extremely pleased to be welcoming Simon, Nick and their team to the Caldwell Partners family,” said John N. Wallace, chief executive officer. “With more than 25 years of experience in both local and international executive search and leadership advisory organisations, they have consulted to a wide variety of commercial enterprises at senior executive level in New Zealand, Australasia and internationally. With their addition, Caldwell Partners now provides services with 56 partners – employed and affiliated – in 21 locations worldwide.”
“We have been incredibly impressed by the degree to which Caldwell’s level of expertise, client focus, professionalism and culture is congruent with our own, and we look forward to providing our clients with access to the global talent market via such a high calibre team,” said Simon Monks. “By joining forces with the Caldwell Partners team, we will be part of the leading international boutique executive search firm.”
Mr Wallace continued: “This represents another big step forward for our firm. The countries in which we operate represent nearly 40% of New Zealand’s direct foreign investors and, in fact, Canada is New Zealand’s largest source of foreign investment, according to a recent KPMG report. Our entrance into the Australia/New Zealand market will open up new opportunities to provide seamless international service to our clients.”
