AltoPartners is delighted to announce that three new teams have just joined the Alliance in China, Germany and Turkey:

  • Foster Partners for China
  • Jack Russell Consulting for Germany
  • MKG & Partners for Turkey.

Jean-Philippe Saint-Geours, Chairman of AltoPartners, commented:

“In welcoming our new partners into our alliance, we are strengthening our partnership and offering our clients additional global reach and local experience – a truly compelling combination. By adding such well-respected Executive Search firms, we have greatly enhanced our global coverage and capability, with a stronger presence in key emerging countries (China and Turkey) and in Germany. Indeed, after the partnerships we have set up in 2012 in South Africa and in Canada, we think we are now much more able to fulfil our international clients expectations”.

AltoPartners is an international alliance of independent search firms with offices in 30 countries in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific. The alliance serves clients in the Consumer/Retail/Luxury Goods; Industrial manufacturing/Natural Resources/Infrastructures & Utilities; Financial Services; Technology/Telecoms; Healthcare & Life Sciences; Media and Education sectors worldwide.


Foster Partners joins the alliance, moving from their previously affiliated network Penrhyn International.

Foster Partners Managing Partner Trevor McCormick, a 19-year China executive search veteran based in Shanghai commented:

“AltoPartners is a dynamic, focused and highly professional network. The move from Penrhyn was the logical next step for us in China as the China outbound demand continues its march ever more towards the absolute need for a substantial global capability to deliver executive search services worldwide, and we believe this is what AltoPartners brings to us.”
