Avdesh Mittal Joins Korn/Ferry International As Senior Client Partner

MUMBAI, India, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Korn/Ferry International (NYSE:KFY), a premier global provider of talent management solutions, has strengthened its India client service capabilities with the addition of Avdesh Mittal as Senior Client Partner and regional leader of the firm's Digital Media sector.

Based in the firm's Mumbai office, Mr. Mittal will focus on the Communications, Media and Entertainment sectors in India and will also be a core member of the firm's Consumer and Technology markets. 

"Avdesh's in-depth knowledge and understanding of the digital media space promises to be a great asset to the firm and our clients," said Charles Tseng, Korn/Ferry President, Asia Pacific. "With the addition of Avdesh to our strong team in India, we look to broaden Korn/Ferry's reach in the growing and important convergence and digital media arena as well as augment our capabilities in the Consumer and Technology markets."

Mr. Mittal brings a wealth of experience in recruiting C-level executives in both established and emerging technology companies – primarily in the telecommunications sector, convergence and internet technologies as well as in broader media and entertainment.

Before joining Korn/Ferry, Mr. Mittal was with another global executive search firm where he was responsible for Communications, Media and Entertainment as a Partner in the Global Technology and Services Practice.

Prior to executive search, Mr. Mittal has more than two decades of experience working across industry sectors and with start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures. He started his career in the manufacturing sector before moving to the services sector as CEO of the Indian subsidiary of a Santa Clara-based (U.S.) technology start-up. He then established a software product (advertising) company, IOL Technologies Pvt Ltd., which he funded through private equity investment from a Mumbai-based industrial house. During his tenure at IOL, Mr. Mittal built strategic alliances and partnerships with some of the largest players in the internet service provider space in India through a software licensing arrangement.

Mr. Mittal graduated from Panjab University in chemical engineering where he was top of class and a gold medallist. He is a Sloan fellow of the London Business School where he earned a Master's degree in Management.
