October 31, 2017 – Executive search consultants are seeing an increase in hiring mandates from around the world. To meet demand, they continue to develop new practices, hire recruiters and open locations. Horton International, for one, recently opened an office in Lima, Peru. The firm chose Rossana Bayona to serve as managing partner of the new location.
Horton International Peru will provide executive search services across a number of sectors, including: consumer goods, food industries, fishing, mining, retail, manufacturing, automotive, distribution and logistics, airport services, consulting service, cosmetics, banking, construction, education, mass media and healthcare.
Ms. Bayona has over 20 years of executive search experience in handling top-level and middle-management search assignments across a range of industry sectors.

“Rossana has a fantastic reputation for advising top executives on the key issues they face in leading their organizations,” said Joshua Hollander, regional director of Horton International for the Americas. “This broad business understanding truly differentiates Rossana in her approach to executive search and enables her to take a strategic approach to executive search and ultimately attract the best talent for her clients.”
Peru is among the world’s fastest-growing economies owing to the economic boom experienced during the 2000s. The country is experiencing a time of great optimism, with growth expected to accelerate in large part attributable to the approval of an ambitious market reform agenda.
Currently, the services sector is the main contributor to the country’s GDP, with nearly 60 percent share. Telecommunications and financial services are the main branches of the services sector; together they account for nearly 40 percent of GDP. Industry, which represents around 35 percent of GDP, has undergone a process of modernization, which has translated into increased employment in the country’s primary industrial areas. Peru’s main exports are copper, gold, zinc, textiles, and fish meal; its major trade partners are the United States, China, Brazil, and Chile.
