Nancy Garrison Jenn’s Newsfeed

The Economist
Corporate headhunters are more powerful than ever

"As the big headhunters have grown bigger, boutique firms have struggled to keep up. Nonetheless, some with deep expertise in specific industries or corporate functions have thrived", says Nancy Garrison Jenn, who helps multinationals headhunt the right headhunters.,, "Growing doubts about the value headhunters bring has led some clients to take the work in-house. An expanding list of corporate titans, including all of the tech giants, are building private squads of headhunters—often by poaching from the Shrek firms. Having focused at first on junior hires, these are working their way up to the c-suite", says Ms Garrison Jenn.
