EMA Partners Adds Dasein in Brazil as Newest Member Firm

March 12, 2024 – Executive search consultants are seeing an increase in hiring mandates from around the world. To meet demand, they continue to develop new practices, hire new recruiters and open new locations. Global recruiting consortiums, meanwhile, are taking advantage of a resurgence in certain geographic areas. EMA Partners International, a global partnership of executive search professionals, has added Dasein in Brazil as its newest member firm. “EMA Partners has more than 30 years of experience giving talent solutions to different type of companies,” said Alberto Miranda, chairman of EMA Partners. “Brazil is an important market for us because of its potential and leadership in the region. We are sure that Dasein expertise will help us to increase synergies with other partners in Latin America and around the globe.”

“Through Dasein EMA Partners Brazil, the company now has a global reach, operating in more than 30 countries, establishing an alliance with approximately 200 consultants who lead the executive search and leadership development sector in their respective countries,” EMA Partners said.

Dasein is a human resource firm specializing in evaluation and succession, executive recruitment, and leader development. The firm was established in 1995 and since that time has placed over 6,500 executives and middle and senior management professionals. With more than 25 years of experience working with executives, Adrianna Prates is the founder and president of Dasein.

Brazil is the largest national economy in Latin America, the world’s eighth largest economy at market exchange rates and the seventh largest in purchasing power parity, according to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. It has a mixed economy with abundant natural resources and is projected to become one of the five largest in the world in the decades to come. In 2022, according to International Monetary Fund, the Brazilian nominal GDP was $1.9 trillion; the country has a long history of being among the 10 largest economies in the world.

Top 5 Trends Governing Global Executive Search
Talent management, particularly hiring and retention, is a major concern and priority across industries and organizations. Over the past two years, businesses have faced multiple challenges with their global executive search, be it from COVID restrictions, a hybrid mode of work, or closed borders. As such, it’s crucial to understand the top trends that will govern the market going forward, says The Taplow Group, in a new report. Not only will this knowledge help you attract the best talent but it could also help bolster your resilience to the uncertainties to come.

Make no mistake: It has become a candidate-driven market and there are more jobs than eligible and competent candidates. “Hence, organizations need to come up with innovative strategies to reach out to candidates and attract them for the best roles,” said the search firm. “This would require some creative hiring strategies, data-driven decision-making, and effective brand communication.”

Since 1988, EMA Partners has partnered with multinational corporations, governments, and not-for-profit organizations across a variety of industry sectors and functional areas. It has more than 40 offices on six continents, and the firm continues to expand globally.

Seattle Presence

Last year, EMA Partners opened an Seattle office. The location focuses on cloud computing and senior technology searches to support the executive search practice globally. EMA Partners Seattle is co-led by the firm’s two managing partners, Ezra Hodge and Scott McKinley. “Increasingly we are seeing our clients request executive talent that has direct experience and expertise in cloud computing and AI as part of their efforts to innovate and transform their businesses,” said Chris Pantelidis, chair of the Americas for EMA Partners. “We believe that the Ezra and Scott are well positioned to access this talent and provide incredible career growth opportunities for individuals across our network of clients.”

Messrs. Hodge and McKinley are two former Amazon Web Services executives who led and scaled cloud enablement programs for AWS and previously held senior executive roles in the education and training sector. “Their network and knowledge of the cloud landscape is uniquely valuable to EMA Partners as the firm looks to enhance its technology and digital transformation practice for a global client base,” the organization said.
