Friisberg & Partners International Secures Another Partner in South America


Brazilian Search Firm “Business Partners Consulting” is the latest addition to the expanding Friisberg & Partners International list of global partners. Within only a few months of welcoming Santiago, Chile to its ever-longer list of offices, it has now added Sao Paulo in Brazil too.


Luis Saverio Stateri, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Business Partners Consulting had dismissed overtures from various international search networks over the years, but he says the advantages of becoming a partner of Friisberg were multiple and compelling.


Founded in 1977, Friisberg & Partners International has been one of the most respected names in executive search for over 40 years. With this second office in South America, it is becoming a truly global firm with partners in the established and growth economies of four continents, and with upwards of 200 search professionals in more than 40 of the major cities of the world.


Luis Saverio Stateri commented, “Executive Search in Brazil has been an exciting market for some years now. I have been privileged to have been part of that and seen the rise in demand for internationally experienced executives here for approaching two decades. I am absolutely delighted to have found like-minded search professionals in Friisberg and I am looking forward to working with more multinational clients in South America in general and Brazil in particular.”


Peter Strandberg, Friisberg’s Chairman, added, “Luis’ firm impressed us with the combination of its local market knowledge and its international outlook. It is representative of exactly what Friisberg offers in every country we operate – a thorough and professional approach to identifying and securing the best business leaders for our clients, irrespective of national borders. His firm in Sao Paulo is a great addition to this partnership and I know our clients will welcome this extension of our capabilities into such a vibrant economy as Brazil.”
