November 4, 2020 – Global recruiting organization Amrop has added São Paulo, Brazil-based Inniti as its newest member firm.
Founded in 2014, Inniti (now Amrop Inniti) serves clients in the domains of executive search, corporate governance, organizational development, leadership development and coaching. The firm’s industry coverage includes consumer, industrial, life sciences, financial services, technology, professional services, education and real estate.
“Joining Amrop is a major step in our development,” said Joseph Teperman, founder and managing partner of Inniti. “Amrop’s strong presence, both in Latin America and globally, enables us to offer our clients and candidates a multinational scope. Our C-suite and board-level positioning, as well as our professional code of conduct, are highly compatible. So too are our core values, such as curiosity, inclusion and caring.”
“In investing in a global partnership, independence and entrepreneurship have been critical selection criteria for us,” he said. “Amrop offers the best of both worlds: global standards and local ownership.”
“Under the leadership of Joseph Teperman, we fully support the team’s ambition to be recognized as Brazil’s best executive search and leadership firm,” said Annika Farin, chair of the Global Amrop Partnership. “The passion, agility and creativity of our new colleagues will find a natural home in Amrop. Inniti represents a new generation of leadership search and advisory firms and has a truly international outlook. We are all looking forward to a rich and stimulating collaboration.”
Founded in 1977, Amrop advises organizations in executive search, board and leadership services. The organization has 67 offices in 45 countries.
Amrop recently added Singapore-based Hofer Tan & Partner as a member firm. Founded in 2001 by Thomas and Cecile Hofer, Hofer Tan brings a team of highly experienced partners to Amrop, specializing in retained executive search, board search and board consulting. Conducting senior assignments across industries and functions, the firm offers particular insight into cross-cultural hiring complexities, with advisory on leadership, succession, executive consulting and development. Hofer Tan focuses on the financial services, consumer, professional services, aviation, aerospace and defense, hospitality and leisure, sport leadership, life sciences and industrial sectors.
New Global Chair
In March, Ms. Fain took on the position of global chair to lead the strategic development of Amrop’s activities in 47 countries. Oana Ciornei, Marie Högstedt, Adam Saunders and Jarle Trandokken have been elected to join the global board along with the new chair.
“I am honored to support the Amrop Partnership in our mission to deliver peerless trusted leadership,” Ms. Farin said. “Amrop is a remarkably agile, refined and intellectually-stimulating firm, an enriching and diverse group of professionals. In light of the situation that is currently being experienced across the world, we can anticipate a profound evolution in the kind of leadership needed by our clients, our candidates, and the stakeholders they serve. In particular, a more ethical, responsible and sustainable approach will be called for going forward, and Amrop is well positioned to meet that need.”
Welcoming the results of the elections, Federico Cúneo, outgoing chairman of Amrop, said: “I have been proud to serve Amrop throughout an important phase of its journey. Amrop’s new leadership team reflects the broad diversity of our global organization and I am confident that our colleagues will together ensure a vibrant new chapter for Amrop. I wish them every success as we pursue our demanding objectives.”
