Norman Broadbent expands board level interim management capability by partnering with Alium Partners

Norman Broadbent plc ('Norman Broadbent' or 'the Company'), a leading provider of executive search and leadership consultancy services, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Alium Partners Limited (Alium), the UKs leading independent interim management company.

The partnership, which will be exclusive and will involve no initial capital or branding requirements, supersedes the previous joint venture of Norman Broadbent with Russam GMS Limited (Russam), which was dissolved in March 2011 when Norman Broadbent assumed full control of the business by mutual agreement.

The partnership will benefit the clients of both Norman Broadbent and Alium by providing them with a seamless service to ensure their businesses have the right leadership at all times. Clients will be in a position to receive the best service and support from two professional and distinct experts working on their behalf to solve their human capital issues.

As well as providing clients with individual senior interim executives for specific projects, Alium Partners is also injecting teams of interims into organisations requiring substantial and rapid transformation. Such organisations include private equity portfolio companies and the National Health Service.

Sue OBrien, CEO of Norman Broadbents UK search business, said:
"We are delighted to welcome Alium Partners as our new strategic partner for the provision of board level interim executives. Alium is well recognised as a leader in the provision of teams of interims as well as individual executives, to solve strategic issues for clients in the UK and overseas. We look forward to a very close collaborative relationship between our firms which share over three decades at the apex of our respective industries.

Pierce Casey, Chairman of Norman Broadbent plc, commented:
Norman Broadbent and Alium are closely aligned in terms of their shared values and strong focus on long term relationships with both clients and candidates. The combination of our team here at Norman Broadbent with Mike and his team at Alium will give the market a great proposition as we are all on the same page.

Mike Hollin, CEO of Alium Partners, said: As one of the worlds pre-eminent executive search firms, Norman Broadbent is the perfect partner for us. Increasingly, organisations are making the strategic decision to turn to senior interim executives for the leadership and implementation of change management programmes, rather than management consultants, and we expect this trend to continue.

Nancy Garrison Jenn, author, consultant and speaker on the global executive search profession, said: Alium Partners and Norman Broadbent will make a very strong partnership with a compelling board level human capital offering. There is no doubt that senior interims have a critical role to play alongside permanent executives in the change management of leading organisations, and my expectation is that the interim industry will see sustained growth in the coming years.

Alium Partners will remain an independent firm, based at its headquarters at 20 Abchurch Lane, London EC4N 7BB.
