Antal announces new CEO
Tremayne Elson has been appointed the new CEO of global managerial and professional recruiter Antal International.
Elson, who first joined Antal 19 years ago, was responsible for building up the company’s extremely successful Russian operation and has lately been focused on growing Antal’s office network in Germany and the wider DACH region.
At the same time Leticia Herran will take on the newly created role of Sales and Operations Director, a main board appointment. Herran has been with the organisation for 13 years and was previously responsible for the development and management of Antal’s business in Spain and Spanish speaking Latin America.
Mike Ryall also joins the main board to strengthen the alignment of Antal’s own branded offices with those of the financial and administrative recruiter, Parkside, which Antal acquired from Ochre House in 2011.
Doug Bugie, who has created, developed and sold recruitment businesses in over 40 countries during his long career, is rejoining Antal on a semi-permanent basis to advise the board and support the global growth of the franchise network.
Antal’s current group MD, Graeme Read, will be leaving the company to take a well-earned break after 17 years’ dedicated service and Paul Russell, Group FD, who has been associated with Antal for 16 years, will also be moving on in December following completion of an in-depth handover of on-going projects.
“Although I am naturally sorry to be losing two people who have contributed so much to the development of the organisation in the past, I am also tremendously excited about the ideas, energy and commitment that Tremayne, Leticia and Mike will bring to their new roles,” says Antal’s founder and chairman, Tony Goodwin. The recent sale of the controlling interest in our Polish operation has provided us with the resources to make considerable extra investments in the business including a brand new website, mobile applications, and even greater marcomms support to our wholly owned, franchise and joint venture capabilities. I firmly believe that we now have a main board team in place that will take us to the next stage of our global expansion.”
