Vienna/ Madrid – February 19th, 2014

This February marks 35 years since one of Spain’s first Executive Search companies was founded. Stemper, established in 1979 by Carlos F. Ordás, pioneered a market in which there were very few specialists, becoming throughout the years one of the leading examples in the Executive Search profession. “Since we first started, we believe that quality and professionalism are key factors in delivering services that involve high added value, such as in Executive Recruitment”, says Carlos F. Ordás. Stemper has continuously evolved in order to adapt to its client’s changing environments, conducting over 4,500 recruitment processes and working for nearly 1,000 clients.

In 1993, Carlos F. Ordás, along with a group of international partners, founded AIMS International. The organization has grown to be present in 50 countries and has now over 90 offices, resulting in an executive search network with solid coverage in every continent. Being a generalist, it has developed an ambitious program focusing on practices such as Industry, Consumer Goods, Health, Energy, Automotive, IT and Finance.

Last year, Stemper merged with EuroGalenus to project the AIMS Spain brand not only nationally but also globally. Through this integration, AIMS Spain became AIMS International’s first firm to be part of the Association of Executive Search Consultants AESC, thanks to EuroGalenus’s presence in the association since 1994. AIMS Spain now forms part of an exclusive list made up of only 18 Spanish firms. In this new phase, both Luis Truchado (considered a “doyen” of headhunters specialized in Health and Sciences) and Carlos F. Ordás express their desire to “continue working with the same quality and professionalism that we always offer to our clients and our candidates”.
