DHR International have long claimed they are “#1 in geographic coverage". At various times over the last few years, they have trumpeted that they have “over 40”, “over 50”, “more than 60” or even “more than 70”… “locations providing global executive search service across Asia, Europe, North America, and South America”.
On the front page of their web site as of November 25, 2015: they claim "more than 60 offices around the globe".
Contrast this "more than 60" with the 56 locations on their website as at the same date. This includes Philadelphia, which is listed as an office but has no physical address, plus some offices with no permanent residents.
We thought it might be interesting to work out the locations where DHR used to operate offices but no longer appear to do so. So far, we have been able to find 76 former offices, which is more than DHR currently list as operating offices.
This may be useful information for prospective clients, recruits and acquisition targets, as it tends to suggest that DHR may open and close offices fairly readily.
- contains offices that DHR have previously listed on their web site or other marketing materials;
- may not be complete—we welcome additions;
- excludes offices that DHR no longer list on their web site, although they may still own or lease premises in these markets;
- excludes current offices that have no address or no permanent residents;
- excludes markets where DHR opened, closed and reopened offices, such as London and Paris;
- excludes Jobplex; and
- may include offices where DHR have changed the names they use to describe the office, or moved the office to an adjacent town, but were previously listed under a different name.
As always, DHR or anyone are welcome to contact us at unofficial.dhr(at)gmail.com with any corrections or additions.
