September 15, 2016 – Futurestep, a Korn Ferry company that provides talent acquisition solutions, has named Bill Gilbert as president of Futurestep North America.

In this capacity, Mr. Gilbert will lead the strategy and growth efforts for both its search and solutions businesses in the region. In addition, he will drive the Futurestep strategy across the region and continue to work closely with Korn Ferry and Korn Ferry Hay Group colleagues to ensure an integrated approach.

“In his more than 17 years with the firm, Bill has come to be regarded as an exceptional leader and colleague, not only in North America, but across the globe,” said Futurestep chief executive officer Byrne Mulrooney. “Among his list of achievements, he led the restructuring of the Futurestep North American search organization to align more closely with Korn Ferry by establishing market, sector and functional leadership and expertise, which has had significant positive impact on our go-to-market strategy.”

Just recently, Futurestep added Eduardo Medina, Marnix Lamberts, Filip Loossens and Renan Mamann as senior consultants within its industrial search practice.

Mr. Medina joined Futurestep as a senior consultant in its Madrid office. He brings experience in the wind and energy sector. Previously, he held a variety of roles at Michael Page, including senior consultant and manager within its engineering division. Also with over 20 years’ experience, Mr. Loossens joined Brussels team as a managing consultant. He was previously with specialist recruitment consultancy Robert Walters, where he created and led its engineering division. Mr. Mamann is managing consultant based in its Paris office. He formerly served as a managing associate in the industrial practice at Korn Ferry for the last decade.

This past spring, Futurestep expanded its advanced technology practice with the additions of Joanne Cumper and Ian Mosby as managing consultants in its London office.

Ms. Cumper, who was previously an executive search consultant with Halo Search, focuses on delivering specialists for digital roles across EMEA, working with all industry sectors for digital transformation as well as pure play, consulting and data / insight. Mr. Mosby, formerly leader of the consulting and professional services practice at Renaissance Leadership, assumed the position of managing consultant for Futurestep’s London office and is also a member of the advanced technology practice.

Futurestep also added Jessica Taylor to its EMEA financial services practice group to support an increased demand for talent in the region. She is responsible for delivering talent for organizations across a number of sectors, including core infrastructure, governmental, institutional investors, renewables and banking. As these markets develop, she will also support real estate investments. Ms. Taylor was most recently served as a director with IJGlobal.
