September 10, 2010 – Following the recent launch of its new global sport leadership advisory group, Heidrick & Struggles Internationalhas formed a partnership with global sport and development initiative Beyond Sport. Beyond Sport is a global organization that promotes, develops and funds the use of sport to create positive social change across the world. The collaboration will be on display as Heidrick & Struggles lends its experience and insight to the second annual Beyond Sport Summit and Awards, taking place later this month in Chicago. As part of the Summit, Heidrick will be the presenting sponsor of the Leadership in Sport Award, one of the flagship Beyond Sport Award categories that recognizes an individual or organization that has demonstrated such skills in the face of significant social challenges. "This Award has already developed a strong heritage in the form of the 2009 recipient Kofi Annan who, through his efforts at the UN, acknowledged the power of sport as real, serious and consequential. This year's winner will again reflect the power of dynamic leadership and innovation to create and sustain positive change," said Kevin Kelly, CEO of Heidrick & Struggles. Heidrick & Struggles is a provider of senior-level executive search and leadership advisory services, including succession planning, executive assessment, talent retention management, executive development, transition consulting for newly appointed executives, and M&A human capital integration consulting.
