Alumni strengthens its team in the Nordics & Eastern Europe

February 6, 2013

As a result of significant growth, Alumni – the leading executive
search and leadership consultancy in the Nordics and part of the Harvey Nash
Group – will be strengthening its leadership team with a number of promotions.


Magnus Tegborg, founding partner of Alumni will, in addition
to his role of CEO Harvey Nash Nordics & Eastern Europe, become chair of
Harvey Nash Group’s Executive Search and Leadership Services Division. The extraordinary
growth of the executive recruitment division within the Group requires a new focus
to bring collaboration and co-ordination across all the markets and geographies
in which executive recruitment is being delivered, stretching across 15
countries from the USA to Europe to Asia Pacific. Albert Ellis, CEO Harvey Nash
Group says: “In founding and growing the market leader for executive
recruitment and consultancy in the Nordic region Magnus will be bringing his
enormous experience and expertise to the wider Harvey Nash Group, as we
continue to build a world-class executive search capability.”


Jan Hemmingson, previously Country Manager Sweden will take the newly
created role of Managing Director for Alumni Nordics and Eastern Europe. Magnus
Tegborg says: “In our next phase of international growth, Jan will be key in
promoting the close collaboration between offices that Alumni has built its
reputation on. Increasingly, our clients are looking for international search
capabilities and Jan is extremely well placed to help us achieve that.” Jan is a
Partner at Alumni and joined the firm in 2004 where he has since worked across the
service offering with specific focus on Executive Search, Management
Assessments and Board Reviews. Jan started his professional career as a management
consultant at Bain & Co. At Bain he worked on a broad spectrum of strategic
issues including corporate strategy, growth strategy and commercial due
diligence both in Sweden and internationally.


Christoffer Lindblad will be succeeding Jan Hemmingson, taking over as
Country Manager Alumni Sweden. Christoffer is a Partner at Alumni and has
worked for the firm since 2007. He started his career as an associate lawyer at
the law firm Mannheimer Swartling and was later seconded to the General Counsel
at Ericsson. Christoffer has been overall responsible for Alumni Nordic’s
Executive Search services and managed the firm’s Financial Services Practice,
including private equity and M&A. “Christoffer is an experienced and
dynamic leader as well as respected advisor and we are looking forward to
working with him to continue developing Alumni in Sweden”, says Magnus Tegborg.

In addition to these appointments Alumni has
also recently been strengthened by a number of new colleagues. In January, Hans
Henrik Luttichau-Holm joined Alumni’s operations in Denmark as Country Manager.
The appointment underlines Alumni’s strategy to keep expanding and building its
network in Denmark. Hans Henrik’s most recent position was as CEO for CBN,
Denmark’s leading business network  He
has been instrumental to CBN’s success, turning the company around and building
it into a profitable business “I am confident that
Hans Henrik’s wealth of experience will be of great value to our clients and us”,
says Tanja Jibrandt, Partner and Hans Henrik’s predecessor as Country Manager
for Alumni Denmark.


Andreas Lokken and Melissa Minaya joined Alumni
in the Malmo office in January  2013.
Andreas joins as Senior Consultant and was previously with PBM Sweden where he was
Regional Director. He is a registered psychologist and lecturer at Lund
University. Melissa is part of our Research Team. “Andreas will be a valuable
addition to Alumni and Melissa’s international background and solid experience
from executive search will make a great contribution to our team”, says Office
Manager Suzanna Malmgren.
