October 22, 2015 – Global executive search firm Allegis Partners has added Robert Lambert as a managing director in the firm’s human resources practice at its Orange County office. Mr. Lambert joins the firm from Morgan Samuels, where he was a senior client partner.
Previously, he led his own consultancy, Lambert Consulting Partners (LCP), which provided talent management and strategic human capital advisory services to CEO’s, boards and other key executives. He also spent many years in various management roles at CTPartners and Heidrick & Struggles.
Mr. Lambert’s clients have been both public and private corporations, family-owned businesses as well as private equity and venture capital firms. Major client engagements include Starbucks, Microsoft, Nike, REI, Patagonia, Seagate, eTrade, Broadcom, Quantum, Constellation Brands, Goldman Sachs, Carrefour, Sequoia Capital, General Atlantic Partners and Kleiner Perkins. His career background includes HR roles with PepsiCo, The Stride Rite Corporation and Broadway Stores.
“Long recognized as one of the most effective consultants in the executive search industry, Bob integrates his corporate operating experience with knowledge of the talent objectives of his clients to become a trusted advisor to CEOs, boards, CHROs and executive management teams,” said Mike Bergen, managing partner and global HR practice leader with Allegis Partners.
Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to serving companies and clients of all sizes address critical strategic and organizational talent challenges,” said Mr. Lambert. “Allegis Partners represents a highly effect platform and opportunity for achieving this goal. The executive search industry is crowded, offering clients very little real differentiation. Allegis Partners takes a holistic approach as a talent consultancy, with access to a broad network of global candidates and solutions.”
Since the beginning of the year, Allegis Partners has strengthened its HR practice with the additions of managing partner Michael Bergen, a former senior client partner in the human resources practice at Korn Ferry; managing directors Cher Murphy, previously a partner at Hanold Associates; Mark Streifer, who most recently served as vice president of talent acquisition and planning with Covidien PLC; and Matthew Healey, a former partner of CTPartners.
Allegis Partners provides sector specializations covering financial services, insurance and technology along with three functional areas including human resources, technology and finance. The firm has offices in Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, New York, San Francisco and Sydney.
