Name change for Canada's largest executive search firm

    Ray & Berndtson adopts global name to emphasize overseas and emerging
    markets capability

TORONTO, Oct. 19 /CNW/ - Ray & Berndtson has adopted its global firm name, Odgers Berndtson, to emphasize its executive search capabilities in emerging economies world-wide.

While Ray & Berndtson has become the leading firm in Canada, Odgers Berndtson has simultaneously created a dominant position outside of North America.

"Odgers Berndtson is a dominant player in today's international and key emerging markets - places like China, Southeast Asia, Brazil, not to mention Russia and Eastern Europe. Now, and in the future, this is where we see increasing action in the talent marketplace," said Carl Lovas, Chair of Odgers Berndtson Canada.

Canadian clients are demanding a new level of international capability, combined with local market insight, as they source talent to support their movement into developing markets. In addition, now more than ever, access to the global talent pool is in demand by Canadian companies for their Canadian leadership requirements.

Lovas adds, "Adopting the Odgers name underlines our ability to provide seamless service to our clients wherever they are in the world. In today's competitive market for senior executives, this level of integrated local and global capability is essential to source the best talent for our Canadian clients both here and as they expand overseas."
