ZRG Partners, a progressive, client-focused global executive search firm, has signed an agreement to acquire certain assets of Pyramid International, a 10 year old executive search firm located in Lausanne, Switzerland.
As part of the asset acquisition agreement, AJ Ravenhorst, CEO, will join ZRG Partners as a Managing Director and a member of the firm’s global life science practice. The transaction is scheduled for closing on January 2, 2016.
AJ brings 20 years of deep industry experience, a solid client base and body of work in the medical technology sector to ZRG Partners.
Adam El Din, Head of Global Life Sciences for ZRG Partners commented, "AJ adds a great dimension to our European team. The experience of Pyramid International through Europe provides further depth to support the growing needs of multinational medical technology firms.
We are seeing a growing trend where solid boutique firms doing good search work are finding the advantages of aligning with ZRG Partners. We look forward to continuing to grow this area of our life science practice with the addition of the Pyramid Team."
AJ Ravenhorst remarked: "We are pleased to have identified ZRG Partners, who conduct their business at the same professional level of integrity, enthusiasm and standards as Pyramid International.
ZRG’s coverage of the USA, APAC and South America expands our reach, and ZRG’s unique data and analytical tools like the candidate Z Score rating system will benefit new and existing clients. With the extensive support organization of ZRG, we look forward to expand our business of on time delivery of quality candidates to the global life science industry."
The team from Pyramid will work out of ZRG’s Nyon, Switzerland offices after the transaction closes in January 2016.
