Kennedy Executive Search Adds Member Firm in Poland

June 20, 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. Kennedy Executive Search, a network of independent executive search firms, recently expanded to Poland with the addition of Executive Capital Solutions as its newest member firm.

“For the partners of the international network, presence in Poland has been high on their wish list as a country with a fast growing and robust economy,” Kennedy said. Executive Capital Solutions is led by Anna Woźniak and is based in Warsaw. The firm is specialized in recruitment for executive, top management, expert and unique positions to the following industries: FMCG, pharmaceutical, production, and new technologies.

“I grow my clients’ businesses by empowering my candidates’ careers while fostering long-term, value-based relationships between them matching people with specific talents to companies that need them is my life’s passion, a journey I’ve been on for over 20 years,” said Ms. Woźniak. “I have a unique ability to connect people and organizations that share the same values. Thanks to this talent, I’ve successfully recruited over 500 exceptional individuals for top managerial and specialist positions in some of the largest companies in Poland.”

“Combining my skills with years of experience, I’ve developed my proprietary executive search method, which I call the values matching approach,” Ms. Woźniak said. “Based on this method, I founded my own company, Executive Capital Solutions, in 2010. By applying and continuously improving this method, we achieve exceptional success in our recruitment projects. When the values of the candidate and the client align, projects close quickly, and candidates become loyal employees for years. I understand that the nature of my work has a profound impact on the important life changes of my candidates and the fate of my clients, both individuals and organizations. That’s why I approach every project with great humility, always prioritizing the well-being of individuals.”

How to Partner With an Executive Search Firm

In today’s dynamic talent market, aligning with the right executive search firm can be the difference between merely filling a position and truly transforming your leadership landscape. However, the efficacy of this partnership hinges not only on the capabilities of the search firm but also on the behaviors and actions of the clients themselves, according to a new report from SPMB Executive Search’s Mike Doonan. As a managing partner at SPMB, one of the longest-tenured search firms serving the technology ecosystem, Mr. Doonan witnessed first-hand over 20 years how a client’s approach can make or break the success of these critical projects. Mr. Doonan offers four principles that are foundational in constructing a successful partnership with an executive search firm.

“Personally, I specialize in recruiting for industries such as FMCG, pharma, manufacturing, and new technologies,” Ms. Woźniak said. “I am a certified career building and development advisor using the Spadochron methodology.”

Polish Economy

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.

Kennedy Executive Search offers “360 talent management,” as the firm calls it, from executive search to coaching during a placement’s integration period, and a host of other talent and leadership consulting services.
