Michael Travis of Travis & Company has been named to the latest edition of BusinessWeek's listing of the "World's Most Influential Headhunters."

"I'm honored to be included in such an elite group," said Mr. Travis. "As a firm, we pride ourselves on providing outstanding service and results to our clients. It's gratifying to see that recognized by a third party with the stature of BusinessWeek."

In thirteen years as a search consultant, Travis has recruited leaders for a range of clients, from early stage start-ups to Fortune 50 companies. He recruits board members, general managers, and function heads. He is based in the company's Newton, Massachusetts office.
