PRAXI ALLIANCE has welcomed a new member firm, AHEAD, headquartered in Brussels.
Guy Vereecke, AHEAD’s Managing Partner, could be considered a pioneer of Executive Search, having started his career with Egon Zehnder thirty years ago. Mr Vereecke and his team are focused on Executive Search across all industries and run a small coaching practice.
“It is truly a pleasure to have Guy on board. His wisdom and experience are precious; he is the consummate professional,” said Fabio Ciarapica, the PRAXI Alliance Network Director.
She defined herself as "Humbled by the task", though Carolyn Christov Bakargiev - new Director of GAM and Castello di Rivoli - has very clear ideas.
Openness to dialogue with citizens, museums as places to meet people and preserve the memory, full accessibility, and pragmatism: that's the managerial idea she clearly expressed during the press conference which took place on September 15.
PRAXI is proud to have supported the selection process which led, after the Director Cristian Greco to lead the Egyptian Museum, the entrance in the Institutions of Art of another professional excellence as one of Christov Bakargiev, who is internationally recognized.
The workshop focuses on the main tools and methodologies to assess and develop corporate competencies, which consequently means improving human capital within organizations.
It takes place at Palazzo Altieri, the premises of Banco Popolare, which will share its own experience on HR development and empowerment.
PRAXI ALLIANCE members gathered on May 8-9, in Athens, Greece, for the 2015 Spring Summit. Participants included new members from Denmark, Russia (via videoconference) and Thailand, as well as China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and, of course, Greece.
Professor Charalambos Gotsis, a Professor of Economics at the University of Piraeus and an experienced board member and CEO, gave a presentation about the current Greek business climate. Members also received insight about the executive recruitment process from Eleftheria Thessolonikefs and Georgia Aravani from the Mellon Group HR division, a valued client of PRAXI ALLIANCE.
Member collaboration and the exchange of best practices were also focal points of the summit. The foundation was set for industrial and geographical teams as well as a framework for improving client communications and reporting, and the announcement of a new website, due to be online in August, highlighted a strong commitment to solidifying and enhancing the PRAXI ALLIANCE brand.
“Giving members the opportunity to sit down and share diverse ideas and best practices is the driving force behind our success”, said Fabio Ciarapica, PRAXI ALLIANCE Network Director. “We look forward to adding many more seats at the table”.
Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev will be the new Director of GAM - Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Turin and Castello di Rivoli - Museum of Contemporary Art, known collectively by the Italian press as the “superfondazione.”
Christov-Bakargiev was selected from among 171 candidates identified by PRAXI, providing search and selection services of Executive profiles worldwide.
