Boyden Global Executive Search Launches Cairo Office
- First global executive search firm to launch operations in Egypt as hub of North African operations -
CAIRO -- (April 1, 2010) -- Boyden, a global leader in executive search with more than 70 offices in over 40 countries, announced today the opening of its new office in Cairo, Egypt, as part of the firm's North Africa expansion. Boyden has appointed Managing Partner Francesca d'Arcangeli to lead its Cairo and North Africa operations.
"Cairo is an important addition to our expanding Middle East and North Africa (MENA) client service which includes offices in Dubai, Johannesburg and other growing markets"
Boyden is the first worldwide executive search company to launch operations in Egypt and its Cairo office will operate as a sister company to Boyden's Middle East headquarters in Dubai.
Boyden Cairo will provide a premier client service for the influx of multinationals expanding in Egypt and North Africa, the growth of Egypt's national companies and the increasing demand for Egyptian executives to be placed in the Gulf region. Industry specific demand is expected in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Telecommunications and Infrastructure sectors in markets that include Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya.
"Cairo is an important addition to our expanding Middle East and North Africa (MENA) client service which includes offices in Dubai, Johannesburg and other growing markets," said Chris Clarke, President and CEO of Boyden World Corporation. "Egypt and its neighbouring countries are increasingly becoming strategic markets for executive search as the overall region is maturing rapidly and building multinational investment. We're seeing an increasing demand for cross border assignments from our clients in the Gulf region and the growing regional sophistication of Egypt's executives makes Cairo an excellent hub for expanding Boyden's North Africa operations."
"As the North African economies gain increasing momentum, we want to ensure that our Cairo office is led by the right team," said Magdy El Zein, Managing Director of Boyden Middle East. "Francesca brings an excellent track record of developing leading growth strategies, preparing organizations for implementation and delivering profitable expansion in the MENA region as well as internationally. She is the ideal candidate to lead our new Cairo office, partner with our associates and meet the increasing needs of our global clients."
Ms. d'Arcangeli previously served as COO at the ARTOC Group for Investment and Development, where she was responsible for the management and growth of the Group's operating companies in the MENA Region. She has also held executive positions at operating board levels within News International, Sega and Carlton Audio before launching a tech start-up and establishing a management consultancy.
"Many global companies are taking interest in the North African region due to its booming middle class, growing economy and increasingly skilled management," said Ms. d'Arcangeli. "I am looking forward to helping our clients develop their businesses in this region and I am delighted to be part of the Middle East operations and be supported by talented Boyden partners around the globe."
Ms. d'Arcangeli holds an honours degree from University College London and speaks four languages.
