Praxi makes perfect

aut2015In October, AHEAD’s Managing Partner Guy Vereecke addressed a gathering of fellow Praxi Alliance members from several countries, including China, at their two-day autumn summit in London.

Belgium is a hot bed of great companies and great candidates, maintains Guy. For those unfamiliar with the firm, he firstly explained AHEAD’s rather unique pedigree and position on the Belgian market in its ‘search for high achievers’. A spin-off from Egon Zehnder, AHEAD’s consultants all have business experience and generate an impressive 70% repeat business across a wide range of sectors and specialisms.

'AHEAD punches heavier than its weight and is light on its feet.'

‘Among clients, AHEAD boasts an admired ethical code – for example, stringent off-limits policies, exclusive practices and guarantees, fixed fees regardless of candidate salary, and the utmost respect for confidentiality, ‘ explained Guy. ‘AHEAD also has a reputation for often succeeding where other methods fail; and among candidates, a reputation for behaving impeccably towards them. AHEAD punches heavier than its weight and is light on its feet, so fast and flexible,’ he adds.

Praxi Alliance is a worldwide network of independent Executive Search and HR consulting firms considered to be leaders in their respective local markets. Belonging to this network offers AHEAD clients a truly global reach and the chance to conduct streamlined cross border search through their trusted local partner.

The Alliance also adds value by fostering knowledge sharing and idea exchange through its HR Technology Laboratory on a range of topics like methodology, best practice, competencies and market intelligence.
