IRC Adds Fashion & Luxury Goods Expertise
IRC Global Executive Search Partners and U.S. based retail and consumer search experts E.A. Hughes & Co. joined forces in July 2016. The partnership enhances IRC’s expertise in the area of retail & consumer apparel, home furnishings, beauty, digital, e-commerce, footwear and others, and with expertise in all channels of distribution.
Named to the POWER 60 of New York City executive search providers by Hunt Scalon Media, E.A. Hughes & Co. significantly raises the bar of IRC’s capability to provide clients with niche expertise. Patrick Westerburger, IRC President says: “Our clients worldwide are more and more in need of true experts with an in-depth understanding of their business. E.A. Hughes & Co. has the track record and expertise in luxury goods and fashion and we strongly believe that our clients in that space will benefit from this globally”.
“Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it”, Winston Churchill said and Elaine Hughes, Founder & CEO of E.A. Hughes & Co., adds: “We have observed a seismic change in the world of search. The need for global talent management is imperative and we see IRC’s worldwide network of search consultancy to be the solution to this challenge. Having over 40 entrepreneurial search firms in close cooperation with one another not only provides the client with a greater network for talent but also the personalized attention lacking in larger and more hierarchical search organizations.”
