Inquest Consultores, led by Pia Puebla Menne and Isabel Walker, has been a key player in the Chilean executive search and compensation management consulting sector for more than 14 years.
Chile is one of South America’s most stable and prosperous nations, leading Latin American nations in human development, competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption. Since 2013, Chile has been considered by the World Bank as a “high-income” economy.
“We are committed to providing the highest standards and we design every solution to fit the needs of the client,” said Ms. Menne. “We dedicate ourselves with rigor, flexibility and creativity to every assignment.”
“Deep industry expertise, especially in the financial and NGO sector, brought by our Chilean partners will certainly enhance our ability to serve our clients not only in the Latin American region but also beyond its borders,” said Patrick Westerburger, IRC president. “Last but not least – Pia and Isabel make our representation in the Americas even more diverse which is always a stimulator of further growth.”
“With our joining of IRC our clients will extend their reach across the globe,” said Ms. Menne. “We’re confident, that being a part of IRC will also ensure we remain updated on business best practices. Hence, all our clients will benefit from our local market expertise combined with a global network whose delivery is consistent with the highest standards in the industry.”
With a growing roster of leading executive search firms across Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australia, IRC Global Executive Search Partners now has more than 300 executive search professionals in 80 offices across six continents.
