IMD International Search Group Grows in the U.K.
ZURICH, Switzerland, June 10, 2016 — IMD International Search Partners is expanding in the UK with the recent partnership agreement with Caton Search.
IMD welcomes an additional member in London, Caton Search. Founded by Bob Caton in 2008, the executive search firm focuses on industrial and services firms in the infrastructure, manufacturing, energy and environmental sectors.
The three Partners have an average of 16-17 years of experience in the executive search business, and they are directly in charge of delivering the assignments, both executive searches and market mapping.
Caton Search’s activities are complementary to those of Highfield Human Solutions, a consumer, marketing/communications and media specialist, therefore IMD International Search is now ensuring a broader covering of the UK market.
Bob Caton, Managing Director of Caton Search: “We are really delighted to have been asked to join a Group like IMD. We are looking forward to making a positive contribution to the Global network through our UK operations and place an enormous amount of value on the collective expertise which IMD can bring to Caton Search.”
“After doing some research on the UK executive search market, we found out that due to the structure of the business in that country, the best solution for IMD’s expansion in the UK was to find boutique firms, each specialized in selected practices. With Highfield Human Solutions and Caton Search, we now have two members in London and are continuing our efforts to acquire at least a third one”, analyzes Dr. Matthias Mohr, IMD President and Managing Partner of Dr. Heimeier & Partner in Germany.
