Michael Page Celebrates Ten Years of Growth in North America
Salaried Recruitment Approach Yields Results in U.S.
New York, NY, February, 2008 — Michael Page, a leading professional recruitment consultancy, is celebrating ten years of client service, growth and vertical business expansion. Founded in 1976 in London, the firm launched its North American operations in 1998. Since then Michael Page has witnessed tremendous growth, reporting industry record numbers of 100% annual growth for the past five years.
The company attributes much of its success to its unique consultancy approach to recruitment. All Michael Page Consultants are salaried, which creates an environment that fosters teamwork, unparalleled service and long-term relationships with clients. Recruiters work collaboratively to find the best possible candidates, which is a tremendous benefit to Michael Page clients.
“Michael Page’s strength lies in our global resources, personalized approach to recruiting and our expertise in the sectors we serve,” commented Alexis de Bretteville, CEO, The Americas. “As we celebrate ten years of operations we look back on significant milestones including the opening of ten offices in the US and the launch of key disciplines such as accounting, finance, banking, financial services, legal, human resources, procurement, supply chain management, sales and marketing.”
The majority of Michael Page Consultants have personal work experience in their respective fields and real knowledge in the areas they serve; which allows them to understand the needs of hiring managers at the fundamental level. Headquartered in New York, the North American operation serves Fortune 500, mid-size and emerging companies across multiple verticals. “In the past ten years, the recruitment industry has changed dramatically due to the evolution of a global economy and increased competition for top talent. Generally, the recruitment landscape treats candidates like commodities,” explained de Bretteville. “But Michael Page has a different approach—we focus on the human element of recruiting. This unique concept has been embraced by both companies and candidates, which is why we have grown tremendously over the past ten years.”
