Growth and positive outlook for executive search firm Signium



Chicago headquartered Signium, one of the world’s leading executive search and leadership consulting partnerships, announces a successful 2017 and a strong outlook for 2018.

At a time when the industry is evolving rapidly, Signium experienced growth in global revenues in 2017 of close to 20%. During the year it also added new offices in key locations in all three of its regions; including Mexico City in the Americas, Paris and Johannesburg in EMEA and Seoul in Asia Pacific. As part of a strategy to expand offerings in new services requested by its clients, Signium doubled the size of its Leadership Consulting division during the year and added Interim Management capability. 

Alastair Paton, the London-based and newly appointed global Chair of Signium, commented “Signium is very well placed to take advantage of the dramatic changes happening in the industry and to respond flexibly to our clients’ needs. Our 40+ offices in key business locations around the world and our collaborative culture coupled with our local ownership model give us a unique combination of scale and agility to help our clients to succeed in finding, assessing and developing talent.”
