Heidrick & Struggles Launches Mobility Practice

Stocks in this article: HSII

CHICAGO, April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobility is revolutionizing the landscape of how enterprises around the world are competing, driving new revenue, developing new markets and extending their value propositions. In response, Heidrick & Struggles International, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSII), the premier provider of Executive Search and Leadership Consulting services worldwide, today launched its Global Mobility Practice, co-led by Kelly Kay, Managing Partner Software and Mobility and Michael Flagg, Managing Partner Communications, Hardware, Systems, Semiconductor and Mobility.

With the continued aggressive growth of tablet computing, smart phones and devices, mobility is transforming how companies operate. As a result, this has created high demand for a new segment of executives to lead these critical up-and-coming business units.

"Corporations from all corners of the globe are eager to crack the mobility code and its potential to impact growth," said Krishnan Rajagopalan, Managing Partner, Global Technology & Services Practice. "The Mobility Practice is on the cutting edge of this sector's evolution. We understand the business acumen required in the next generation of mobility leaders. In fact, our team's counsel and insight to find the right talent, as well as generate future leadership strategies, has already changed the game for many of our clients."

According to Kay, the number of smart devices will soon out-number traditional devices, changing the way we think and interact from personal applications to business functions. "There is no doubt that industries are being transformed by the mobility wave," added Kay. "In order to evolve, all industries will need to assess areas of opportunity rapidly. They will need to adopt a mobile strategy, and most importantly, find dynamic executives to lead these fast-paced business units to remain competitive and relevant."

"Leaders across all industries are adopting mobile practices to drive their growth and maintain competitiveness," underscored Flagg. "This momentum clearly indicates the emphasis organizations are placing on finding the right leaders – companies need to bring in world class talent to devise and implement their mobility strategy."
