Russam GMS opens San Francisco office
Following high demand for executive talent from fast growing technology companies and the venture capital community, Russam GMS has accelerated plans to create a new US office to meet the needs of growing sectors such as FinTech and MedTech.
The office will assist fast growing US organisations to identify executive talent as they develop operations in Europe and the Far Eastern regions. It will also handle plenty of stateside mandates.
Spearheading the move is Russam GMS Director John Schonert, who said, “I’m delighted to be creating the first US office for Russam GMS – I’ve found that more and more of my time has been spent in the States working with US firms of all sizes so the next logical step was to set up an office here. I’m really looking forward to the coming months where I will now have the time to meet as many people as my diary will allow and explain what makes Russam GMS that little bit different.”
Jason Atkinson, managing director of Russam GMS, said, “Our new US office is another key step in the double-digit growth of Russam GMS since our management buy-out last year – and stays true to our core value of innovation. As part of the WIL Group we are in a global network of 15 firms with offices in 35 countries – and this addition does our bit to expand the group just as much as us. Alongside our joint ventures and separate business units such as Trustees Unlimited, Step on Board, NEDgroup and Devonshire House, our San Francisco office demonstrates to our clients just how seriously we take what we do as the UK’s premier – and longest established – interim management and executive search firm.”
