LONDON — Boyden, a global leader in executive search, today announced that it will be reuniting its executive search and interim management businesses in the UK and expanding the firm’s interim management division in Europe. Boyden’s interim business continues to grow due to the increased activity in merger and acquisitions, turnarounds, transitions and crisis management.
In addition, Boyden has acquired Execbank Ltd, a UK-based boutique interim management business set up by Patrique Habboo, and the firm has hired Tim Blackstone to further strengthen its interim management offering.
A recognised industry expert, Patrique Habboo has been a speaker at numerous seminars on interim management including London Business School, RAC Club, Grosvenor House Hotel and other impressive venues. Prior to setting up Execbank, he led the growth of Praxis Executives on Assignment from 1999-2006, spanning both the public and private sectors.
Tim Blackstone was until recently a director at Brooklands Executives and has been a respected force in the interim management business for several years. Following a successful international marketing career, Mr. Blackstone became both a buyer of interim management and an interim executive himself. He is now acknowledged as a top provider in the sector.
“Merging our executive search and interim management divisions will further strengthen a fast-growing segment of Boyden,” said Chris Clarke, President and CEO of Boyden World Corporation. “Today, finding the right interim executive often requires global access to top management and the deeper synergies will provide a 360 degree solution for our clients.”
“We are delighted to be reuniting Boyden’s executive search and interim management,” said Samantha Allen, Boyden UK’s Managing Director. “I am confident that we will serve our clients better by integrating the two business streams and managing them from a single location. Patrique and his team, together with Tim, add significant strength to our interim offering.”
