Culture-shaping firm Senn Delaney congratulates our parent company, Heidrick & Struggles International on the 60th anniversary of its formation as the premier professional services firm focused on serving the leadership needs of top organizations globally.
“Senn Delaney became a Heidrick & Struggles company at the beginning of January 2013, and we are delighted to be a part of the journey as the firm expands globally and drives leadership innovation at the highest levels. We are excited about contributing to a great firm's continued success,” states Senn Delaney President and CEO Jim Hart.
Heidrick & Struggles is commemorating its 60th anniversary with a series of events – including the ringing of The NASDAQ Stock Market closing bell on Nov. 14 – all designed to remember its heritage, reinforce its core values, recognize employees and clients, and reinforce innovation for future growth. In addition, Heidrick & Struggles is marking the milestone with a variety of employee and client celebrations around the world. The firm launched 60 Years in Leadership, a community-based volunteer program designed to rally employees globally and give back to the communities where they live and work. Programs are set to take place throughout 2013 and into 2014.
“Assisting clients build winning leadership teams is the reason Heidrick & Struggles was founded 60 years ago by Gardner Heidrick & John Struggles. And, it remains the foundation for what we do on behalf of the many organizations we serve. Since 1953, we have been cultivating deep relationships with the world's most talented individuals on behalf of the world's most successful companies. Today, our team continues the rich tradition of our founders, of shaping our industry - and many others - around the world,” said Jory Marino, interim CEO of Heidrick & Struggles.
Gardner Heidrick and John Struggles opened the doors to Heidrick & Struggles on November 15th, 1953, in a small office in downtown Chicago. Their concept was centered on the idea of helping companies find the right talent to grow their business. Today, that same concept has catapulted the firm to be revered as a top global brand in the category, with our people serving diverse markets and organizations around the world.
“Back in the 1950s, the retained executive search industry was in its infancy. But, Gardner Heidrick and John E. Struggles had determination and vision, and today, that vision has translated into a $10 billion industry,” said Marino. “We are trusted partners to many of the world's top companies finding the most innovative and distinguished leaders. We are very proud of our history, and are equally excited about our future.”
