October 22, 2014 – Search firms Antal International and WorldBridge Partners have joined forces. The joint group will encompass more than 137 offices and over 800 consultants, giving access to clients and candidates in 35 countries including the U.S., Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Panama. “We’re already well-established in Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia and Africa and recently moved into the Latin American market with a new office in Mexico,” said Tony Goodwin, Antal International’s founder and chairman. “Partnering with Worldbridge Partners gives us that next key piece in the global jigsaw – the USA and Central America. And it’s a vital piece given the fact that the U.S. still accounts for over 25 percent of all world trade export and there are consequently literally thousands of U.S. companies looking for the talent necessary to fuel overseas expansion.” Founded in the early 1990’s, Antal International provides recruitment solutions to clients in over 75 countries spanning a wide array of industries and functions. Established in 2002, WorldBridge Partners is a global search firm with over 90 associates serving 16 distinct industry sectors.
