“The acquisition of CCG is part of a strategy to position Prolaurum as the leading emerging global executive search firm,” said Michael Boxberger, Chairman of Prolaurum. “The designation of Eduardo Comella as Partner, head of the Global Financial Services practice and Managing Director of the Miami office also enhances our capabilities in this important business segment.”
With operations in major business centers throughout the Americas, Prolaurum provides executive search, management assessment, and merger and acquisition services. The firm, which is a member of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC), specializes in identifying, evaluating and attracting top talent to corporations in a wide variety of industries and countries.
“Like Prolaurum, Comella Consulting Group is built based on the veneration of our Client-Candidate-Consultant system,” said Alex Cirone, Prolaurum’s Regional President Latin America. “This acquisition creates a bridge between Latin America and the U.S., increasing our One America services capabilities as well as opening new business opportunities in the global markets for the Firm.”
“From my vantage point in Miami, Prolaurum provides the infrastructure and huge research capabilities necessary to expand the global executive search practice I have built, which currently extends from North America and Latin America to Europe, the Middle East and the Far East,” said Eduardo Comella, Partner and Managing Director of Prolaurum’s Miami office. “With our boutique approach to superior client service, our international connections and my specialization in the financial services sector, we meet an important need in the global executive search market.”
