Sao Paulo, Brazil and Rochelle Park NJ, USA (September 4, 2019)  ZRG, a fast-growing global leader in executive search and talent management, expand their Professional Search Division in Brazil.

“ZRG has been successfully helping our clients build their organizations with finding the right executive talent through our proven methodology and proprietary tools for two decades. That same process has continually been used to find future leadership with our Professional Search solutions. Our ongoing success and added requests have raised the priority level to expand upon our Professional Search Division here in Brazil,” said ZRG Brazil CEO, Denys Monteiro.

He continued, “With the expectations of our Professional Search Division increasing to 30% by the end of 2020 out of the Brazil offices, we know we needed to build a team that combined internal promotion and outsider expertise.”

The Professional Search team in Brazil will be lead by promoted Principals Marília Tufani and Anna Maria Da Costa, who embody the ZRG culture, and new hire, Adriana Leal, who brings close to a decade of Life Sciences and Industrial experience within the Brazilian and Latin America markets. 

Adriana stated, “I am extremely excited about joining ZRG and utilizing their global platform, unique ZRG methodologies, and proprietary tools to better serve my clients. Their highly collaborative philosophy is extremely encouraging, and I look forward to leveraging all that ZRG offers in the continuing efforts to build the Professional Search Division here in Brazil and beyond.”

“I am both honored and excited to have been given this opportunity to spearhead the Professional Search Division along with my colleagues Marilia and Adriana. My years in executive retained search with ZRG will be extremely valuable as we help build the team to meet the increased need for our client’s management solutions. Beyond our industry expertise, we will both be ensuring the Professional Search Division continues to maintain the valued culture that has made ZRG what it is today,“ added Anna Maria.

Fellow promoted ZRG Principal, Marília, added, “Proud - that would be an understatement of how I feel about being given this opportunity. Together with my partners, I am extremely excited to grow the ZRG Professional Search Division here in Brazil. Our adapted search model follows the same quality and standards of ZRG Executive Search and maintains our data-driven DNA that contributes to better hiring decisions.”

Denys added, “If we are not supporting our clients in their management roles, then we are not supporting their leadership development needs. With the additional support to our team here in Brazil, we will be broadening ZRG’s Professional Search services to Central America, South America, and beyond. All in the effort of doing what we do best – to better serve our clients globally.”
