Inzito Partnership Forms Transatlantic Executive Search Alliance with Battalia Winston

London, Wednesday 30 January 2013 – The Inzito Partnership, London’s leading, strategic executive search firm, is delighted to announce that it has formed a Transatlantic alliance with Battalia Winston.

Headquartered in New York, Battalia Winston is one of America’s top executive search firms, with offices in New Jersey, Boston, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. The firm has more than 20 consultants and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Dale Winston, the firm’s CEO and Chairwoman, has more than 25 years of experience in executive search and is a recipient of the Gardner W. Heidrick award for outstanding contribution to the executive search industry. Terry Gallagher, the President of Battalia Winston, is recognized by BusinessWeek as one of the world’s most influential recruiters.

The Inzito Partnership is London’s most dynamic executive search firm. Founded in 2009 by Carol Leonard, the former head of the Board practice at Whitehead Mann and a former financial journalist for The Times and London Evening Standard, the Firm has already grown into a firm of seven professional consultants whose corporate client base consists of more than 20 FTSE companies, as well as a number of significant privately owned companies, both PE backed and family businesses, and several large pension funds.

The alliance will enable both firms to offer their clients superb research, selection and recruitment services on a global scale to ensure they have the widest selection of the best possible candidates for their critical executive posts.

“We are very pleased to have signed this alliance with such a well-known and respected U.S. search firm,” said Carol Leonard. “Since first meeting on our way to a conference in Eastern Europe over 12 years ago, Dale and I have developed a strong friendship and I am excited that this relationship has now blossomed into a partnership that will be the first step in creating a broader global alliance, with representation in North and South America, continental Europe, Asia and India.”

“The Inzito Partnership is characterised by the professionalism and dynamism that we were looking for in a London based partner,” said Dale Winston, CEO and Chairwoman of Battalia Winston. “The culture, values and ambition that their founder has instilled are very similar to our own and I am personally excited to be embarking on this journey with Carol to bolster our companies’ global presence. I look forward to being in a position to serve our respective clients even more effectively.”

“Known for having greater access to the best talent, higher quality placement results, Senior Partners as engagement managers, and timely search execution, this alliance will allow Battalia Winston to further leverage our client value proposition on a global scale,” said Gallagher. “These differentiators have enabled us to achieve 82% repeat business with our clients who represent the Fortune 1000, privately held organizations, and private equity firms.”
