December 9, 2016 – AIMS International has appointed South Africa partner Leonie Pentz to lead its energy practice.
As an executive search professional with 20-plus years’ experience in the recruitment industry and extensive exposure to the utilities, downstream and renewable energy segments in the SADC region, Ms. Pentz brings expertise to the firm’s current energy team and AIMS clients. Working for a high profile client based in Washington, D.C., her experienced team recently completed a complex multinational search for a regional infrastructure support program across the SADC region.
After managing AIMS in South Africa for the last six years, she was recently elected to the AIMS board of directors, taking responsibility for the MEA region.
“Our energy practice team currently comprises strong professional representation across Scandinavia, Central Europe and the Baltics, Western Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa and I am proud and humbled to be part of such a learned and seasoned team,” said Ms. Pentz.
“We are constantly sharing knowledge about recent industry trends and business development actions across our nine global practice teams,” said Pierangelo Favero, AIMS International’s president. “This enables AIMS consultants to constantly deliver exceptional results for clients all over the world.”

It currently has active global practice groups working in the automotive, financial & professional services, FMCG & luxury goods, industrial, IT & telecoms and life sciences industries, as well as in talent management and board advisory services.
As an outgrowth of its expansion plans, AIMS recently expanded into Albania where it has been implementing all of the human capital advisory services of Dynamics Partners, which has been providing executive search and HR consulting services in Albania and Kosovo for the last 10 years. The firm has a portfolio of roughly 500 completed search assignments.
