Cripps Sears and Partners reveals plans for development in key global markets

Cripps Sears and Partners aims to be the world’s leading executive search firm in energy, infrastructure and associated professional services. Over the past year it has further developed its global reach with new offices in Singapore, Paris and Dubai.This expansion is part of a strategy that will see the Cripps Sears brand actively represented on the ground in key global locations. The firm plans to open locally-based offices in all major energy markets with direct access to the Cripps Sears global industry network and expertise.

Managing Director Mike Cripps said: “At Cripps Sears we are highly specialised and knowledge-based, with a strong client track record built on trust and integrity. Clients in our core areas of expertise – energy, infrastructure and associated professional services – rely on accessing top global talent to achieve their business objectives, and we are proud to be able to provide tailored, effective searches that add real value to their businesses. This is underpinned by nearly 40 years industry experience, which has enabled us to develop a unique platform of contacts and relationships in our specialist areas of work.”

At the core of Cripps Sears’ success is a strong organisational culture that enables the firm to grow in turbulent economic conditions that have hit many executive search firms hard. Our positive internal culture attracts the best people in recruitment, which ensures our long-term success.

Head of Infrastructure Mark Scollay said: “Through our training academy we see tremendous success in developing confidence and competence within our team. This programme helps build the future Partners of the business.”

Executive search is, above all, a team game, and Cripps Sears has invested in building a teamwork approach within the firm through a schedule of fun and challenging events throughout the year. In October 2011 the Cripps Sears team will take part in a Hike and Bike Challenge in South Africa as part of its Action for Burns and Children (ABC) initiative. Some 50 participants will take part in the event to raise money for the Phoenix Burns Project which funds work with badly burned and traumatised children at the world-famous Red Cross Hospital in Cape Town.
