Michael Castine Joins ZRG, Bolstering Asset, and Wealth Management Practice

Rochelle Park, NJ, Nov. 20, 2019 – ZRG, the fastest-growing global executive search firm, announces the addition of Michael Castine to the Financial Services practice. Michael brings 30 years of executive search experience to the firm. Previously, he was the co-head of Spencer Stuarts Global Financial Services Practice and Chairman of Korn Ferry’s Global Asset and Wealth Management practice. Before his executive search career, Michael worked in the White House as the Director, International Communications and Information for the National Security Council and as Deputy Director, Private Sector Initiatives, after graduating from Harvard.

Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG Partners, commented, “Michael adds tremendous value to our Financial Services team with his experience that extends across senior asset and wealth management executives, private equity, family office, board placement, and succession planning. As a financial services specialist for over thirty years, Michael has an evolved understanding of the state of recruiting, hiring, developments, compensation, and trends within the industry. We are thrilled to add Michael to our team at this exciting time of growth and expansion for the firm.”

Michael added, “I am excited to be a part of the team here at ZRG. Their highly collaborative culture and mix of industry and functional specialists complement my expertise and create the perfect platform to better serve all of our clients. I have worked with many members of the ZRG team in past firms which will allow seamless collaboration with clients. I was attracted to ZRG by the proprietary data-driven tools that are truly redefining how an executive search is done. I am looking forward to the opportunity of delivering better outcomes for clients because of it.” 

Michael will work out of ZRG’s expanding New York City offices at One Rockefeller Plaza. The new ZRG offices will be open in December, as ZRG continues to expand the direct New York city team to support clients in the financial services and retail sectors.
