Two leading New Zealand executive search firms - Wellington firm Sandri Walsh Limited and Rosenberg Executive Search Limited in Auckland - today announce that they have merged to create a new level of executive search offering under the banner of SWR Group NZ Limited.
SWR Group covers all leadership roles - permanent and contract - from directors and C-Suite down. The firm has offices in Auckland and Wellington to engage personally with clients and candidates, and providing stronger reach, extensive networks, collaboration and technology to help clients find the best leaders.
Based in Wellington are directors Graeme Sandri and Tony Walsh with research consultant Suzannah Moller, while in Auckland director Tim Rosenberg is supported by research consultant Nicole Walkinshaw.
Director Graeme Sandri says: “We have known and worked with Tim Rosenberg for many years, so when the opportunity arose over recent months to combine our operations we jumped at the chance.
“Together we are much stronger; SWR Group offers clients a new level of search presence and capability right across New Zealand by harnessing a new approach to technology, collaboration and research. With well-networked senior search experts on the ground backed by highly capable and collaborative research consultants, we engage at a level rarely seen in the search and recruitment industry.”
Tim Rosenberg says that SWR Group has invested heavily in its research capability. “We are committed to being at the forefront of the evolution of executive search. Our experienced research consultants work locally and nationally, collaborating across the group on each opportunity. We also reach out globally through our membership of the Taplow Group - which has 100+ senior consultants in offices across Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
“Further, in this age of digital simplicity, we bring new levels of transparency to executive search in order to provide clients with demonstrable value. We have created an innovative platform that demystifies the search process, offering 24/7 real-time, interactive information for everyone involved. The result: real transparency, open communication and visibility throughout the process.”
