HARRIS HILL ANNOUNCES THE STRATEGIC ACQUISITION OF CR SEARCH & SELECTION
Harris Hill, the leading provider of recruitment services to the charity and non-profit sectors, is delighted to announce the acquisition of CR Search & Selection, the specialists in executive search and selection for director and chief executive level appointments in the charity sector.
From 22nd June 2009, CR Search & Selection will combine with Harris Hills existing search business to form Harris Hill Search & Selection. Olga Johnson, currently Chief Executive of CR Search & Selection and her team of Geraldine Norris and Lauren Bates, will join Nicola Hitt and Alexandra Kurn of Harris Hill Executive to form the new Harris Hill Search & Selection.
Aled Morris, Chief Executive of the Harris Hill Group, commented: This is a significant strategic acquisition for Harris Hill and in particular it will enhance the executive search and selection services that we currently offer charities and non-profit organizations for director, chief executive and trustee appointments. Olga Johnson and her team are highly regarded within the world of charity and non-profit executive search and their great track record of success will complement our own expertise in this area.
Olga Johnson said: I am delighted to be joining Harris Hill, and believe that our combined expertise and resources together with our shared ethos and values will provide current and new clients in the charity and non-profit sector with an increased depth and range of executive recruitment services.
Aled Morris continued: Our charity and non-profit clients can now access the highest quality solutions for all of their recruitment needs under one roof, thereby saving them considerable time and offering them the chance to work with a single partner who will get to know every aspect of their organisation. We are confident that this approach also creates a competitive advantage for Harris Hill and a strong platform for future growth and we are pleased to be in a position to make acquisitions even in these challenging times.
During the transition period, CR Search & Selection, which continues to be based in central London, will maintain its current brand identity and will move over to the new Harris Hill Search & Selection name in the autumn.
