IMD International Search Group Adds New Member Firm in Poland

April 19, 2024 – Executive search consultants are seeing an increase in hiring mandates from around the world. To meet demand, they continue to develop new practices, hire new recruiters, and open new locations. Global recruiting consortiums, meanwhile, are taking advantage of a resurgence in certain geographic areas. Global executive search consortium IMD International Search Group has added Kaluzynski & Madeja in Warsaw, Poland, as its newest member firm. This completes IMD’s coverage of the Central European market.

Founded in 1991, Kaluzynski & Madeja was created by Richard Kaluzynski, who has over 30 years’ executive search experience. He started his career in the United Kingdom before settling in Poland. He is a British and Polish National.

Mr. Kaluzynski and his team have extensive experience in technology, banking, FMCG and in the Industrial sectors. They also operate as a generalist firm, recruiting all C-level positions as well as senior management. Other business segments include leadership assessment, interim management and career advice. ‘’I am thrilled to join the IMD International Search Group with its long heritage,’’ said Mr. Kaluzynski.

Poland’s economy is considered to be among the more resilient of the post-communist countries and is one of the fastest growing within the E.U. Having a strong domestic market, low private debt, flexible currency and not being dependent on a single export sector, Poland is the only European economy to have avoided the late-2000s recession. The Polish banking sector is the largest in the CEE.

IMD’s expanded team in the Central part of Europe now comprises:

Top Recruitment in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Telkes Consulting in Hungary.

Dr. Heimeier Executive Search in Serbia operating all southern Balkan region countries.

Head Hunting Agency in Romania with capacity to serve clients in Bulgaria.

Kaluzynski & Madeja in Poland, able also to recruit in Ukraine.

Founded in 1972, IMD International Search Group is one of the top 40 global search organizations with more than 41 offices in major markets and business centers throughout the world. Its executive search professionals, many of whom held senior positions in the industry sectors they now serve, conduct hundreds of senior-level searches for clients worldwide each year.

IMD International Search Group Adds New Member Firms in North America
IMD International Search Group recently expanded in North America with the additions of Radar HeadHunters in Montreal and Silvester & Company in Salt Lake City, UT. “With these additions, IMD therefore covers North America in a wider range of industry sectors and functional areas, on C-level and board positions,” the organization said. “Our existing member firms, Alder Koten from Houston, TX, and three offices in Mexico, and Onstott Group from Boston, are looking forward to the new cooperation opportunity. Welcome aboard to our new colleagues.”

The consortium said: “We are proud to have retained many members for decades now, for instance Dr. Heimeier & Partner (member since 1989), Telkes Consulting (1997), Sirca Executive Search (1998), IMS Talent (2001), Lisberg (2002), Panamera (2003), Schilling Partners (2004), and Executive Network (2005). This stability allowed us to build trustful relationships, to the benefit of our clients. It also helped attract new members during the last decade, expanding our geographical coverage to Australia and New Zealand (Fisher Leadership), Brazil (Osser & Osser), Chile (SommerGroup), China (GMPTalent International), and the U.S, (Alder Koten, Onstott Group).”

IMD recently expanded its reach in Eastern Europe with the addition of Head Hunting Agency headquartered in Bucharest, Romania. They join IMD’s team in Southeastern Europe with members in Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Serbia. Founder Loreda Dragomir is a seasoned executive search professional.

Ms. Dragomir is an experienced country manager with a demonstrated history of working in the management consulting industry. She is skilled in executive search and recruiting, business planning, HR consulting, coaching, sales, and international business.
