Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Leading human capital firm Morgan Samuels has announced the acquisition of Lambert Consulting Partners Inc., an Orange County, California based human capital strategy consulting firm. The transaction includes the addition of Founder Robert J. Lambert who will be joining Morgan Samuels as a Senior Client Partner. Lambert Consulting Partners, founded in 2003, focused on Human Capital Strategy, Leadership Development, Workforce Planning, Organizational Effectiveness, and Executive Coaching. Both parties described the acquisition as the integration of shared values -- execution excellence, client service, and passion for building world-class leadership teams.
“Bob brings to Morgan Samuels a unique perspective, having built first-rate executive teams as both a senior operating executive and a human capital consultant,” said Janice DiPietro, President of Morgan Samuels. “He’s an outstanding addition to our firm. His experience, knowledge, and his firm’s resources further strengthen Morgan Samuels’ human capital consulting services.”
The move marks Lambert’s return to executive search – before founding his own firm, he was the Founding Partner of Heidrick & Struggles’ Orange County office, and later the Founder and Managing Partner of CTPartners’ Orange County office. He has also served as Chief Human Resources Officer for three Fortune 1000 public corporations. He’s worked in the Retail, Financial Services, Professional Services, and Consumer Package Goods industries. “His clients have included some of the world’s most successful and admired companies including PepsiCo, Starbucks, REI, Macys’ and Patagonia – to name a few,” DiPietro said.
Morgan Samuels is deepening their Southern California footprint and expanding into Orange County. “Bob is the ideal person to head our Orange County office as he truly understands the local business community and Orange County’s global reach. We know Bob is a highly sought after Human Capital executive and we are thrilled to have him lead our Orange County practice and join our team.”
Morgan Samuels has been in the business of human capital consulting and executive search for over 40 years, and has worked with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to rapid growth, private equity-backed firms. Morgan Samuels has an average close cycle of 76 days, which is best in class for retained executive search firms. The company averages four client interviews per placement, versus the industry standard of 11, and has a 34 percent diversity placement rate, which is triple the industry average.
“I am very excited to be joining the Morgan Samuels team. They truly stand out among their competitors as a best in class firm. Morgan Samuels has a unique approach to executive search, an outstanding track record, and proven results. It is a very exciting time to be joining the firm as they continue to expand in human capital consulting,” said Robert Lambert.
