AltoPartners, the international alliance of boutique executive search and leadership consulting firms, proudly congratulates Accord Group ECE on the celebration of their 25th anniversary. Accord Group ECE, which has a footprint across Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia, is a founding member of AltoPartners and the group is recognised across Eastern Central Europe for their excellence in executive search and leadership consulting. The expertise across their group covers all major industry sectors and practices, ensuring clients interact with sector experts who have the network to source outstanding candidates.

Following a management buyout of an executive search and consultancy group, founding partners Jana Martinová, Corinne Klajda and Sorin Popa built Accord Group ECE into a dominant and leading local market player, with the focus on providing outstanding service to their clients while being caring and respectful to the candidates they interact with.

“Defining and promoting high professional standards in executive search and leadership consulting services to support our clients and act as their trusted advisors in changing environments has been our goal from day one. It continues to be our goal as we develop innovative solutions that address the ‘human factor’ in increasingly digital environments”, says Jana Martinová, Accord Group Ceska Managing Partner.

Corinne Klajda, Managing Partner Accord Group Polska, agrees and highlights the formation of the AltoPartners international alliance as a key milestone for the team: “As founding members of AltoPartners, we have long valued the importance of cross-cultural and cross-geographical collaboration, which is a natural way of doing business for us across ECE. Today, this understanding is even more beneficial for our clients and candidates”.

Sorin Popa, Accord Group Romania, Managing Partner, says : “We are proud of the development of our business over the past 25 years and the journey we have taken with our clients. Even more importantly, we are well positioned for the future because our diversity in terms of geographical spread, ethnicity, gender and expertise enhances our ability to provide our clients with relevant advise into the future.”

The Accord Group ECE team honour the foundation and legacy upon which they were established by carrying their founding values, principles and beliefs forward while they continue to evolve their business and corporate brand to be one that is relevant and sustainable in to the future, addressing corporate trends and needs through focused work in executive search, digital innovation, leadership and talent management, as well as board advisory services.

“We are delighted to congratulate the Accord Group ECE on their milestone anniversary and wish them continued success and prosperity into the future. We are proud of the fact that a founding member of AltoPartners is recognised as such a dominant force across their region and across our international alliance, providing our clients with seamless cross-border and cross-cultural expertise and service”, says Stephen Dallamore, AltoPartners Global Chairman.
