June 27, 2018 – Penrhyn International, a global network of executive search firms, has elected three new members to its board of directors.
Yanouk Poirier is managing partner at Leaders International in Canada and current chair of Penrhyn’s technology, media & telecoms group. “He brings his entrepreneurial expertise, multifaceted profile and talent for communication to help national and international business leaders to achieve their business strategies and has led numerous assignments of top-level executives and board members, for major companies and renowned firms,” the network said. Mr. Poirier has over 20 years of professional experience in different sectors, including professional services, finance, media and information technology.
Luce Nordon is CEO of Agora Search in France and a current member of Penrhyn’s technology, media & telecoms group. “Her marketing and communications background, her appetite for new technologies and innovation and her strong sense of business led her to build a strong network in the IT and digital market, and contributed to make Agora one of the top-ranked executive search firms in France,” Penrhyn said.
Rikke Dolberg is partner at Unique Human Capital in Denmark and a current member of Penrhyn’s board services practice group. She brings more than 15 years of experience from executive search and board search, working closely with large and international companies in Scandinavia.

This year Hunt Scanlon reviewed an exhaustive list of global recruiting providers and culled it down to the top 25 global talent providers that now dominate the recruiting business worldwide.
“The addition of Yanouk, Luce and Rikke brings further energy, skill-sets and experience to the board, which will prove vital as Penrhyn continues to adapt to meet the evolving needs of our global clients,” said Michael Herst, Penrhyn chairman and managing director at Osprey Clarke. “This is an exciting time for our network and we know they will make a significant contribution to our future success.”
Accessing Global Talent Pool
Penrhyn International is a global network of executive search firms, with offices in more than 40 cities globally.
At the end of last year, the global consortium expanded its footprint within Central and Eastern Europe (including Russia) with the addition of TheXecutives. The firm joined forces with existing German member LAB & Company, strengthening its Vienna office and enabling both firms to gain wider regional expertise. TheXecutives, with offices in Vienna and Moscow, is managed by Dominik Sonnberger and Mladen Kasagic. Its main areas of focus are industrial and automotive, retail, logistics, utilities and FMCG.

“Penrhyn International has global reach combined with the latest local market intelligence through a carefully selected network of some of the world’s most accomplished search specialists,” said Mr. Poirier. “Penrhyn consultants understand the leadership qualities required for businesses to reach their potential in this rapidly changing environment and can help organizations to identify and secure the right talent.”
