ZRG Partners Adds Andy Talkington, Former Co-Head of Industrial Practice from CTPartners
WEST ORANGE, NJ, July 27, 2015 — ZRG Partners, a progressive, client-focused global executive search firm, has added Andy Talkington as Managing Director to further build out the firm’s global Industrial practice. This comes after last week’s announcement of Jim Aslaksen, also a former Co-Head of the Industrial Practice at CTPartners, joining the firm.
Andy comes to ZRG with extensive global search industry experience. He was a Managing Partner at Heidrick & Struggles, leading its global Industrial practice and most recently as a Co-Head of the Global Industrial Practice at CTPartners. Andy will work in Houston and continue to support his international clients with their search and talent management needs.
Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG Partners commented, “Andy brings great expertise in his Industrial market niches. He is a proven search industry professional with a solid business grounding and track record of success. His experience and contact base will further fuel our global industrial practice. Re-uniting Jim Aslaksen and Andy Talkington as a cohesive team will provide seamless support to their long time clients who have come to rely on them for top talent needs.”
Andy Talkington commented, “I have been seeking a global search platform with strong integrity and solid financial footings for my clients. ZRG has the global reach needed without the restrictive hands off issues that exist in the largest search firms. ZRG is a well-run, mid-sized firm with a 15 year track record of success. After thoughtful consideration and review, I am thrilled to get back to focusing on finding the best talent globally for my clients through the ZRG platform.”
