Executive Search Leadership Gather in Chicago to Explore Solutions for Today's Market Pressures

PETERBOROUGH, NH--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - In accordance to the worsening economy, the issues affecting Executive Search continue to maturate. Search professionals' main prerogative -- adding value to their clients' bottom line by delivering the right talent at the right time -- is being compromised by the current economic climate and an ever growing job loss rate. Over the past year alone, the challenges facing the industry have shifted dramatically; and they are expected to evolve further for the foreseeable future.

On May 5, at the Union League Club of Chicago, top search professionals from across the nation will attend Executive Search Summit 2009 for a meeting of the minds. They will forge new alliances, gain expert perspective from today's premier thought leaders, ask questions, share their thoughts -- and return home better prepared to face the year ahead with tactics they can put to use immediately.

At the spring Executive Search Summit 2009, Search professionals will fortify their future success as search firm leaders with strategies and forward-thinking advice from industry thought leaders, including: ways to develop new businesses despite a grim economy, how to discern those executives best able to navigate companies through the trials and tribulations of 2009, the best practices and performance metrics as they pertain to managing executive recruiting, and many more contemporary dynamics affecting Executive Search.

The Summit is proud to announce keynote presenter Kevin Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of Heidrick & Struggles, featured speaker Kim Bishop, Vice Chairman at Boardroom Consultants/Slayton Search Partners, and additional faculty representing the best of the executive search profession. More information on this timely event can be found at, or by calling 800.531.0007.
