 Boyden's President and CEO expresses his satisfaction with this recognition: “We are honored to be named as one of the top 10 executive recruiting companies for the second consecutive year”.

As Fernando Neves de Almeida, Managing Partner of Boyden Portugal, explains, “All economically more developed countries, with greater productivity and professionalism in management, use almost exclusively Executive Search processes as a form of recruitment. Although in Portugal the reality is still not the same, the path has to be that, particularly in the face of a recovery context and the increased competition in which companies need quality people to have better results. The 2017 performance was made possible by the extraordinary team that surrounds me and in 2018 we want to continue helping the market to find the talent that is capable of following trends, managing change, reconciling innovation and results orientation and motivating and developing teams ”.
