Allegis Partners Retained by GLG to Conduct Search for Global Head of Human Resources


Leadership Role in GLG’s Plans for Rapid Growth and Organizational Investment

NEW YORK (July 19, 2016) — Allegis Partners (AP), a global executive search firm, announced today that it has been retained by GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group) to recruit the company's next global head of human resources. GLG is the world’s largest and leading professional learning platform, with 22 offices in 12 countries and more than 425,000 thought leaders and practitioners serving more than 1,400 client companies in 40 countries.

New York City-based GLG has been a pioneer in professional learning for more than 15 years. Learning solutions for clients include phone consultations, meetings, roundtables, surveys, special reports and strategic projects, site visits, learning and professional development, as well as placements. The company’s compliance framework — a major competitive differentiator— allows clients to learn in a structured, auditable and transparent way, consistent with their own internal compliance obligations and the highest professional ethical standards.

"We believe GLG is positioned to grow significantly as it continues expanding from its strong base among financial and professional service firms to more and more of the world’s leading corporations across sectors," said Mike Bergen, managing partner of Allegis Partners U.S., who is conducting the search. "GLG’s new global head of human resources will play an important leadership role in driving success as it invests in talent acquisition and management, and compensation and benefits functions. The ideal candidate will have the experience and ability to manage and scale a global company and HR team with a growth mindset and appetite for change."
