InterSearch Worldwide, a leading international network of executive search firms, celebrated its 20th birthday during the organization's annual conference, held in Budapest between May 28-31.
Consultants from InterSearch offices across the globe gathered in the Hungarian capital to exchange views and information on the state of the executive search market in 2009 and beyond, and to celebrate two decades of offering top quality services and delighting clients.
This year the recipient of InterSearch's annual Excellence Award was Heinz-Dieter Hestermann from Germany, one of the founders of InterSearch Worldwide and a former Chairman and member of its Board of Directors. Heinz-Dieter was honored for his invaluable total contribution to the organization.
“A new generation of talented consultants are already contributing to InterSearch's success and will lead this organization for the next 20 years, inspired by the vision, principles and values our founders instilled,” commented Patricia Epperlein, Chairwoman of InterSearch Worldwide.
Intersearch’s Hungarian shareholder is the Dr. Pendl & Dr. Piswanger International Ltd. It’s managing director András Lipcsei told the BBJ:
“Following the annual conferences and due to the intensive personal contacts and networking the business volume usually increases in the host country. That was the reason why we invited – for the 2nd time during the history of Intersearch - the conference to Budapest. We wanted to demonstrate that despite the economic downturn the country functions and there are people in the business life who do a lot for preparing their organization and themselves for the upturn.” (BBJ)
