November 29, 2010 – IIC Partners has launched its Transborder Awards program to recognize member firms which provide an outstanding service to clients in cross territory searches. The IIC Partners Champion TB Initiator 2010 is Human Capital Group of Copenhagen. HCG joined IIC Partners in December 2009, initiated its first transborder search within a week and has so far this year initiated five cross territory searches in the Energy and Industrial sectors. The IIC Partners TB Initiator Runner-Up 2010 is the Curzon Partnership of London, which also initiated five transborder searches. In the last five years, Curzon has worked with a number of IIC Partners’ member firms on cross territory searches in the energy and infrastructure sectors. IIC Partners’ transborder searches are so far up 34 percent in 2010 on 2009 figures, with the industrial sector attracting the most demand from clients for cross territory placements at a senior level. “The new Transborder Awards program is a celebration of the core values that bring IIC Partners’ members together – collaboration, communication, collegiality and the trust that our fellow colleagues will uphold the highest personal and professional standards to deliver outstanding service to our clients,” said IIC Partners board chair Lim Chye Lian.
