“The fields of executive search and talent management are rapidly changing, and we are proud to be joining an organization that shares our common belief that is it only possible to serve your local market if you are also global,” said Mr. Miland. “Based on our strong track record in Denmark we can now offer services delivered by professionals who are supported by other professionals – a true benefit for our clients.”
“This will effectively strengthen our European organization,” said Pierangelo Favero, president of AIMS. “Totem has a strong presence in the Danish market and serves some key international clients. We are proud to have Torsten and his team join our organization as AIMS International Denmark.”
