NEW YORK—Heyman Associates, a U.S.-based executive search firm specializing in corporate communications, has established a formal affiliation with Taylor Bennett, a similar firm that handles executive search assignments across the U.K., continental Europe and Asia. The two firms will work together on multinational searches, providing clients with an international pool of candidates.
Says Heyman Associates founder Bill Heyman: “Borders are softening and companies are seeking opportunities in parts of the world they may not have even considered even just a few years back. Especially with communications roles, clients like to see that a candidate has not only worked in the international arena, but has actually lived somewhere else and can truly understand the way PR is done in different parts of the globe.”
He says the two firms have worked for many of the same clients in the past, and will benefit as large multinational companies look for search firms with expertise in specific sectors, such as communications.
