Seeliger y Conde, the firm specializing in the sector of recruiting executive talent, and Kingsley Gate, a global firm specializing in executive search and consultancy, have integrated their operations with the aim of boosting their international growth and consolidating their value proposition through proprietary technology in processes.
As a result of this union, the Seeliger and Conde team, led by its president, Luis Conde, became part of the global organization of Kingsley Gate. "The two companies share a growth strategy based on the development of a unique methodology supported by cutting-edge technology, which ensures the cultural and strategic fit between candidates and clients," they explain from the firm.
Between them they add a team that exceeds 70 partners and 330 professionals, with a presence in 33 countries. With this integration, Kingsley Gate estimates to close this 2023 with a growth in billing of 35% compared to the previous year.
Since the founding of Seeliger y Conde, 33 years ago, the firm has participated in the selection of more than a thousand executives and members of the boards of directors of the main Spanish companies. "The objective of this union with Kingsley Gate is to strengthen our position in the European market and expand the perimeter of action in the United States and Latin America," says Luis Conde. They also incorporate the HELIA technology platform, which will help "to offer a better service to our customers".
Spain has always been a strategic focus for Kingsley Gate to connect operations between the United States, Europe and Latin America. “By integrating Seeliger and Conde, the company reinforces its position in this market”, they comment, “thanks to the wide presence and great knowledge of its twelve partners, located in its offices in Barcelona and Madrid”.
Eduardo Antunovic, director of the client area and senior partner at Kingsley Gate, highlights that, beyond "mere geographical strengths", the intention is to transform the sector of attracting managerial talent both in Spain and worldwide.
Founded in 2015, Kingsley Gate is based in New York and since last year has been backed by the private equity firm Crescent Cove Partners LP, which specializes in investing in technology companies. Since its creation, it has helped more than 1,700 organizations to hire and onboard executives.
