(June 3, 2021) The ExeQfind Group is proud to announce the addition of two new senior managing partners and their team based in Santiago, Chile. This new addition is a result of the merger of Santiago-based inQuest Consultores into The ExeQfind Group effective as of May 24, 2021.
inQuest was launched in 2002 and built a stellar reputation as a retained executive search firm serving both Chile and other countries within Latin America.
As the managing partners of inQuest, Pia Puebla and Isabel Walker are now senior managing partners in The ExeQfind Group. Both Pia and Isabel are to lead our Chilean practice from Santiago.
This merger expands our sector expertise, consultant depth, cultural fluency as well as our geographic reach in Latin America. Pia and Isabel have previously collaborated with other partners within The ExeQfind Group and The QualiFind Group which led to a realization of shared values, ethics, and an approach to delivering world class executive search services wherever our clients need the support.
“With almost 20 years in executive search, Isabel and I have developed our search practice to serve both domestic clients in Chile but also the SMEs and multinational organizations operating throughout Latin America”, said Pia Puebla. “We have worked with partners in both The ExeQfind Group and The QualiFind Group which led to us developing trust, mutual respect and a set of shared values that bring us to this exciting new chapter. By merging with The ExeQfind Group, we gain a larger footprint, strategic resources and expertise in the USA as well as strong partners in Latin America and globally. We are very enthusiastic about offering a more comprehensive and seamless search and recruitment experience for our clients. This merger and partnership fully leverages our complementary experience, varied cultural fluencies and our collective expertise in retained executive search,” added Pia.
Warren Carter said, “This addition adds another significant facet to our ability and capacity to serve our clients needs as a go-to resource for leadership talent. We have had the privilege of collaborating for the past decade with Pia and Isabel on other projects in Latin America and this merger will now allow us greater depth and diversity in our team, additional cultural nuance, and expanded market intelligence in Latin America.”
“I’m thrilled to formalize our partnership with Pia and Isabel. We have been long term colleagues through our global group and through that have come to know them as being both highly skilled executive search consultants as well as consummate HR professionals. Additionally, they are wonderful human beings that bring vibrance and excellent experience to The ExeQfind Group”, added Senior Managing Partner – Sylvia MacArthur.
Sao Paulo-based Hamilton Teixeira stated, “Experience collaborating with Pia and Isabel on executive search assignments across Latin America has proven them to be a resource to our joint clients. I’m very excited at having them onboard The ExeQfind Group and am looking forward to additional opportunities to be a seamless resource to our clients across Latin America.”
