EMA Partners International, a global partnership of executive search professionals has expanded its presence in the Americas by opening a new office in Seattle. Based in the heart of the world’s cloud capital, EMA Partners Seattle will focus on cloud computing and senior technology searches to support the executive search practice globally.

The unique combination of our own network and expertise complements the global reach and agility of EMA", said Ezra Hodge. “Our clients have global talent needs and the power of EMA along with our experience will enable the Seattle office to deliver hard to find technology talent to our clients.”

Chris Pantelidis, Chair of the Americas for EMA Partners commented that “increasingly we are seeing our clients request executive talent that has direct experience and expertise in cloud computing and AI as part of their efforts to innovate and transform their businesses.
