FM headhunters new name
ITP Consultancy known as McArthur Murray following recent acquisition
ITP Consulting has been acquired by Teledata Inc and Horizon International on 1 October 2006.
The Executive Search Group of ITP Consulting will now trade under the name McArthur Murray, while Spectrum Recruitment and The Contractor are moving under the existing recruitment group of Horizon Dubai.
Selina Smyth, associate director of property & real estate and a specialist in senior level FM recruitment at McArthur Murray said: “We see this a very positive move internally for McArthur Murray (formerly ITP Consulting) and externally for our clients.
“We felt that due to client demand McArthur Murray had to look at expanding into global markets and this acquisition will certainly assist us in in this growth.”
Over the last five years, ITP Consulting has grown into a market leader in the Gulf recruitment sector and it now employs over 34 people.
McArthur Murray has numerous Fortune 500 clients and provides board level assignments.
The move allows the group to focus on its long term expansion goals and acquisition plans that will enable the company to escalate their executive search business into multiple new geographical areas and provide global recruitment strategies to its clients.
Charles Willson, chief executive officer of McArthur Murray, said: “Our objective is to roll out an Executive Search group in McArthur Murray that will have a limited service specialisation of probably six key areas, allowing us to have a boutique type feel to what will be a global group.”
Smyth added: “We hope the acquisition will elevate and increase the international service we can continue to provide to our key clients.”
McArthur Murray is the largest executive search group head quartered in the Middle East.
It concentrates primarily on the construction/real estate, IT/communications, financial markets and GCC conglomerates sectors.
