ATLANTA & MILAN--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Lucas Group, North America’s premier executive
search firm, announced that it has formed a global recruiting partnership with J. Friisberg & Partners Italy, an
executive recruiting firm in Milan, Italy, member of Friisberg & Partners International. The partnership will focus on
Europe and North America, with Friisberg recruiting and placing European talent for American-based firms and
Lucas Group recruiting and placing American talent for European-based firms.

The deal extends the global reach of two major executive recruiting firms in their respective locations. Friisberg Italy,
via Friisberg & Partners International, has access to offices in 20 European countries, and Lucas Group has 15
offices throughout the United States. The two firms are already developing plans to work with specific companies
doing business on both sides of the Atlantic.

“Multinational companies are thinking globally and acting locally when it comes to executive recruitment,” said
Andrea “Andi” Jennings, President and CEO of Lucas Group. “For U.S.-based companies, the trend is moving
away from sending Americans to foreign offices to lead large organizations. Instead, companies are looking for
outstanding executive talent at the local level so they can leverage the benefits of local and regional awareness and
business networks.” 

“The same is true in Europe,” said Lorenzo Bombardini, President of Friisberg Italy. “European companies are
looking for American talent to lead their U.S. operations. The combination of Friisberg and Lucas Group makes for
a very powerful and comprehensive approach to international recruiting at the executive level."

Indeed, new data from a recently released U.S. Department of Commerce report suggests that U.S. companies are
looking locally to fill overseas positions. The total employment of U.S. multinationals was comprised of 21.1 million
people in the U.S. and 10.3 million overseas, and the trend is tilting towards hiring executives where the bulk of their
production facilities and customers reside. This strategic partnership between Lucas Group and Friisberg will help
open the doors to identifying, attracting and hiring key local executives - delivering direct and impactful results
wherever companies geographically need it most.
