Industrial Search Partners Joins the Global Amrop Partnership


Firm to serve as U.S. leader in providing executive searches in the Industrial, Infrastructure and Energy sectors

Industrial Search Partners (ISP) has joined Amrop, one of the world’s largest retained executive search partnerships. ISP will lead Amrop’s retained executive search services in the Industrial, Infrastructure and Energy sectors for the U.S. Growing rapidly since its launch in 2013, ISP differentiates itself by the unique combination of partners with industrial-sector CHRO experience and deep executive recruiting experience, serving as advisors at the board and senior management levels.

“By adding ISP to the Amrop Partnership, Amrop members can leverage our firm’s growing reputation in the U.S.,” says Patrick Ference, Managing Partner at ISP. “In addition, ISP can expand our global reach enabling us to better serve our clients who have an interest in international talent acquisition.”

“In selecting Amrop, we preserve autonomy while allowing our team members and clients access to global partners with similar principles and high standards of performance,” says Managing Partner Jason Ward. “Recognizing that the U.S. search market requires a different approach, Amrop is expanding by adding U.S. based super-boutiques by industry practice groups. This enables members to respond quickly and efficiently at the point of need, without restrictive bureaucracy, but within an operating framework of shared values, standards, policies and processes.” 

“Under the impressive leadership of Patrick Ference and Jason Ward, ISP is a dynamic and ambitious firm with outstanding coverage in its fields of expertise. In terms of culture and values, ISP are an ideal match with Amrop’s DNA,” says José Leyún, CEO of the Amrop Partnership. “We warmly welcome ISP into our partnership, further reinforcing Amrop’s expansion in the U.S.”
