30 years in the headhunting market: Kontakt InterSearch Russia celebrates its anniversary
Kontakt InterSearch, the official representative of InterSearch in Russia, celebrates its 30th anniversary and is pleased to share this holiday with its international colleagues and clients.
Over the past 30 years, the company has come a long way: from a small agency to a self-confident business that works with the largest market players and offers a full range of HR services. During this time, Kontakt InterSearch Russia has implemented over 6,000 executive search projects, including closing 250+ CEO and board member positions.
Two dates are especially significant in the company’s history: obtaining the status of an exclusive InterSearch representative in 2006 and the status of Shareholder in 2013. The merger with InterSearch allowed the company to enter a completely different stage of development, gain experience in project management on a global level, and build up expertise in new industries.
Kontakt InterSearch Russia continues to actively move forward: over the past six months, the portfolio has been replenished with several new services at once (outplacement, interim management, career consulting for top managers), and the company has entered the Kazakhstan market. The system of partnership in management allows maintaining the stability of development: now strategic decisions are made by 6 partners, the company has adopted a transparent KPI system, after which any employee can become a new partner. The team has over 30 consultants who are provided with special training programs.
“Throughout our history, we have experienced more than one local and international crisis, but each time we got stronger and opened up other opportunities. Therefore, in the year of our 30th anniversary, which coincided with a new crisis, we do not get upset, but are looking for effective solutions and setting new ambitious goals. In our 30th year, we are still delighted to be part of the international InterSearch team”
– comments Yulia Zabazarnykh, Partner at Kontakt InterSearch Russia.
“I think one of the recipes for success is to support each other and regularly exchange experiences with each other. We are glad that every year our cooperation with InterSearch is becoming closer and more productive. We say a huge thank you to all our colleagues for the partnership and we will be pleased to host everyone in the Moscow global conference in two years when it becomes possible”
– adds Daria Tulubenskaya, Partner of Kontakt InterSearch Russia.
“I consider our cooperation with Kontakt as a great asset for our organization and our international clients for almost 15 years. Their growth went hand in hand with InterSearch worldwide and we are confident will further continue with the same enthusiasm in the future”
– says Frank Schelstraete, Chairman of InterSearch Worldwide.
It is customary to strike the balance during an anniversary, and Kontakt InterSearch Russia decided to do it as informally and fun as possible by filming a short video:
