Knightsbridge Growth Continues With Robertson Surrette Alliance

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2009) - Knightsbridge Human Capital Management has today announced a strategic alliance with Robertson Surrette, Atlantic Canada's largest human resources consulting firm - a partnership that will strengthen Knightsbridge's executive search, assessment and career transition offering in Atlantic Canada. This affiliation, along with Knightsbridge's recent acquisition of MICA Consulting Partners, is yet another positive indicator of the company's continued growth and success even during this current economic downturn.

"Knightsbridge's growth model is built on four pillars: organic, alliances, partnerships and acquisitions," said David Shaw, CEO of Knightsbridge. "Both our recent acquisition of MICA and this newly formed strategic partnership with Robertson Surrette shows this model in action and more importantly that Knightsbridge has been able to weather the economic storm, coming out the other side a larger, stronger and deeper company. This alliance demonstrates the strength of the Knightsbridge brand as a company with the caliber and reputation of Robertson Surrette has chosen to make the switch to the Knightsbridge name."

With this new partnership, Robertson Surrette has withdrawn from all preexisting national partnerships and will now be known as Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette, operating the brands of Knightsbridge Executive Search as well as Knightsbridge Career Solutions in the Atlantic Region. The newly named company will provide the broadest range of recruitment, career transition and human capital advisory services available in Atlantic Canada, and will fulfill a real need for a more integrated approach to human capital challenges in the area.

"This is a strategic alliance which will strengthen both companies significantly," said Mark Surrette, President, Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette. "Over the past two years, our clients have made it clear that they are looking for a more integrated approach, and innovative solutions, to their complex human capital challenges. Knightsbridge will gain a stronger presence in Atlantic Canada and an increased ability to serve national customers, while Robertson Surrette will benefit from the relationship with a national organization that has a similar business philosophy and market approach."

The strategic alliance is effective immediately and the Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette team of over 40 professionals will continue to serve clients through its offices in Halifax, Moncton, Saint John, Charlottetown and St. John's. All Knightsbridge employees in the Halifax office will be assumed by the Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette firm. Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette will continue to be independently owned and operated by Atlantic Canadians.
