AltoPartners, the leading international alliance of independently owned executive search and leadership consulting firms, proudly announce Camden Partners has merged with two other independent search firms to begin trading in Australia as AltoPartners from November 2016. The merger enhances the practice group and sector coverage of the team, and establishes the foundation for future offices in Melbourne and Brisbane. AltoPartners Australia already has the rich partnership experience of Richard Sterling and Robert Bozek, and is now bolstered by the expertise of new partners Richard Fortune and Peter Tulau, two highly accomplished executive search professionals.

Richard Sterling, Managing Partner of AltoPartners Australia says; “When one of our clients or candidates looks up AltoPartners, they will see a substantial and energetic executive search organisation that delivers best practice globally. Trading as AltoPartners removes the confusion of dual branding and delivers a powerful message about local knowledge and global experience. By having associates in Melbourne and Brisbane, AltoPartners will have access to the immense diversity of talent as well as key decision makers across all industry sectors from financial services through to manufacturing, natural resources, professional services and the sciences.”

The eastern seaboard of Australia, particularly Sydney and Melbourne, is the home of the majority of Australia’s companies and provide the headquarters for many foreign companies operating in Australia or within the South East Asian region.

Welcoming the news and recognising the equity and value in the AltoPartners global brand name, Stephen Dallamore, AltoPartners Global Chairman says: “Working in Australia under the single brand of AltoPartners will provide the team with the powerful benefit of global brand reinforcement, access to global best practice and will provide added benefits to the clients of the firm. In addition, I am delighted that Richard Sterling and Robert Bozek, highly-regarded search professionals, will now be joined by Richard Fortune and Peter Tulau as this will really amplify the impact of AltoPartners Australia.”
