Feb. 4, 2021

With a new partner in Spain, IRC Global Executive Search Partners continue their European expansion, following other new members in Latvia and Luxembourg.

Long-term IRC partner in Italy (Ellipsis Partners - former Open Executive Search & Selection), founded in 2005, has recently added a new office in Madrid, Spain, led by Paul Herrick. They are proud of the reputation they have built based on excellence, quality and lateral thinking. Their philosophy is to consistently exceed the expectations of their clients. After 15 years of operations in Italy and globally, their expansion into the Spanish market offers the clients and prospects further southern European capability and reach.

Paul Herrick has become a new Partner of IRC Spain based in Madrid. He brings over two decades of Spanish business experience. Paul has led global and EMEA talent management functions for some of the world's leading organisations, including Amadeus, WPP and General Electric. We are very excited to have appointed Paul as a Partner for Spain as he brings a rare combination of in-depth market knowledge combined with international talent management experience.

"It's an honour to represent the largest global network of executive search firms in a country I have called home for over twenty years.
Being connected to more than 300 colleagues working across eleven industry practices enables me to source the world's best talent for clients whilst providing boutique service levels on both a national and global scale. Thank you to Marco Alemagna (CEO, IRC Italy & Spain - Ellipsis Partners) for making this happen," says Paul Herrick.
