April 2, 2015 – CTPartners vice chairman Barry Bregman has quit the company to join rival Korn Ferry in its New York office. Mr. Bregman follows a string of high level recruiting executives to depart the nation’s seventh largest search firm recently, including its CEO Brian Sullivan; he is the fourth vice chairman to leave. (Former CTPartners vice chairmen Ron Porter and Joe McCabe joined Korn Ferry last month, while Ernie Brittingham took a position with Russell Reynolds Associates). At CTPartners where Mr. Bregman spent the last nine years, he led the company’s CFO and financial leadership practice. His search practice concentrated on recruiting CFOs, divisional finance VPs, controllers, chief accounting officers, treasurers, heads of tax and internal audit, and other senior financial leadership positions for both public and private companies in a range of industries. Mr. Bregman’s expertise has been developed over three decades focused in human capital management, talent recruitment, and advising boards, CEOs, CFOs, and human resource professionals. He has a long track record of working with financial services and private equity firms, building upon his pre-search experience with Goldman Sachs, where he spent 14 years in a series of HR and talent management leadership roles, and Commodities Corporation, where he served as EVP HR and administration. Before CTPartners, Mr. Bregman led the chief financial officers practice at Heidrick & Struggles, and served as a senior partner in the firm’s financial services practice. He entered the recruiting business as chief operating officer of Wall Street boutique search firm Sullivan & Company, founded by CTPartners departing chief Mr. Sullivan, making this departure a bittersweet moment in Mr. Bregman's long search career.
