AIMS International is the world’s second largest global firm specialised in board services, executive search and talent management. With new partners in strategic locations, we listened closely to the market and responded accordingly, by making sure we can support our clients on a truly global level. Since 2020 we have expanded into 7 new countries and we aren’t stopping there.
We invite you on a tour of the latest partnerships at AIMS International.
In our most recent news, Denmark continues its long-standing presence with a new partnership and not a moment too soon, since the country was named the world’s most competitive economy earlier this year! We have just welcomed Jørn Duhn and his team in September 2022 to proudly lead AIMS International Denmark.
Ukraine joined us in May 2022 in the midst of the utmost toughest conditions, AIMS International proudly joined forces with Alexei Onischuk and his team in Kyiv. The fortitude and resilience of our colleagues there are deeply inspiring.
AIMS International has been present in France since 1995, but announced the recently established French partnership with Managing Partner Nicolas Rogier at the forefront, in March 2022, with support in this regard coming from countries that share the language: Switzerland, Belgium and Morocco, who contribute resources to a common pool.
Cyprus becomes a rapidly growing hub for technology and financial services and attracts heavy investments in the tourism and real estate sectors. The need for high potential talent is emerging and AIMS secures a highly experienced coverage on the island, with Elena Leonidou and her team supported by our Greek office as well.
Moving to our strategic markets in the Middle east and Africa we made sure that with all the opportunities presented in the region, we are prepared to support our clients and our candidates in these markets. The MEA region has been attracting high FDI and witnessing major shifts in economic developments from early 2019 and maintaining growth despite the hit of the pandemic. AIMS East Africa, onboarded in January 2022, operates out of Nairobi, Kenya, the traditional point of entry to the larger regional market. The partnership there also serves the needs of candidates and businesses in Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda. We were thrilled to bring Arnold Ochieng and Evans Munga onboard adding another compass point in Africa, where we already had teams in South Africa , Morocco and Egypt.
Moving from Africa to the United Arab Emirates, the Arab world’s second largest economy, where these two markets come hand in hand. In early 2020 Kyriakos Kofinas set up AIMS International Gulf, so it isn’t AIMS International’s youngest family member, but it has been an important milestone for us. Located in Dubai, the office covers the highly dynamic markets of the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Oman, and Bahrain.
Continuing the journey into Asia we were thrilled that our colleague from AIMS Singapore Chanchal Lahiri moved from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to set up AIMS International Malaysia in April 2022. It didn’t take him long to assemble a winning local team!
This brings us to Southeast Asia, where we will find Vietnam, a country in rapid and constant growth, it has been a destination country for a wide variety of businesses, professionals and universities around the world. Enrico Dalla Rosa and Giuseppe Iamele are extremely proud to become an AIMS International Partners by setting up AIMS International Vietnam in December 2021.
Moving from Asia to the Americas, Yasser Seoud was inspired to set up North Lead, Member of AIMS International in Canada by the end of 2020. With the world’s eighth-largest economy as of 2022, the contribution to regional and global business opportunities are endless as one of the world’s largest trading nations, with a highly globalized economy.
“We are very proud and excited to welcome our new colleagues around the world. Amidst the last two very difficult years, AIMS International managed to grow and strengthen its presence in all regions – EMEA, APAC and AMERICAS.
I would like to congratulate all the new Partners but also our Board members and the support team for their amazing contribution in onboarding our new members.”
– AIMS International President, Dimitris Kleftakis –
