Fact check: Is DHR International "one of the fastest growing search firms"?

DHR International often claim they are "one of the fastest growing search firms".

Is this accurate?

There are (still) 12 press releases on the DHR International web site from 2014 detailing senior consultants joining DHR International. There is not yet a single one for 2015!

We looked at the number of client-facing revenue-generating consultants listed on the DHR International web site today, deduplicating those across multiple offices and removing those in support roles (e.g. CEO (Geoffrey Hoffmann), CFO (Douglas Black), Head of Research (Marissa Martin), Internal recruiters (April Drury, James G. Abruzzo and Lorenz Pestinger)).

As of March 11, 2015 there are 162 consultants at DHR International. (If you believe DHR International has 51 offices, this is a paltry 3 consultants per office).

We then looked at the DHR International web site in 2010 at the lowpoint of the market and found that there were 185 consultants.

In other words, DHR International has shrunk over the last five years.

So, is DHR International "one of the fastest growing search firms"?

No. It is not even a "growing search firm". This is another example of "Hoffmannitis".

  1. DHR is one of the fastest SHRINKING firms!

    Maybe that's why they want to buy CTPartners. If there's a hole in the bucket caused by the owners, there's no point trying to fix the hole. It is much better to pour in some fresh water!
