Boyden Portugal expands

Bernardo Costa Macedo is Boyden Portugal's new Partner and will lead the multinational's new office in Porto.

Lisbon, May 15, 2019 - A Boyden Portugal is expanding. The multinational market leader in Executive Search is opening an office in Porto and has chosen Bernardo Costa Macedo to lead the new office and appointed him Partner.

"The opening of the office in Porto supports Boyden Portugal's strategy of continuing to provide its clients with excellent services based on best practices and exemplary integrity, positioning the company and achieving ever greater relevance on the national and international scene."Fernando Neves de Almeida, Country Manager of Boyden Global Executive Search Portugal.

Boyden Portugal was the first international executive search company to enter the Portuguese market in 1986 and over the last three decades has shown a profound ability to understand the organizational culture of its clients and the challenges to which the professionals to be hired will be subject; it carries out professional recruitment with great rigour and reaches all the potentially interesting professionals on the market for a given position in Portugal.

"At a time when competition for talent is intense, Boyden Portugal continues to stand out and assert itself in the market by understanding which people fit the client's organizational culture, the challenges inherent in the position in question and the company's moment in life."adds Fernando Neves de Almeida.

From this perspective, the appointment of Bernardo Costa Macedo as Partner of Boyden Portugal is the corollary of the added value brought by the consultant since he joined the organization as Advisor at the beginning of 2017.

His experience, which has included management positions in consultancies in Portugal and Brazil, as well as managerial responsibilities, is particularly relevant in responding to the current challenges facing Executive Search.

"With Bernardo Costa Macedo, Boyden Portugal has distinguished itself as the most versatile Portuguese Executive Search company in terms of the multiplicity of professional experiences. The performance of this outstanding professional has catapulted the organization to national prominence, consolidating its skills and capabilities"says the Country Manager of Boyden Portugal, Fernando Neves de Almeida.

Bernardo Costa Macedo, who has a degree in Civil Engineering from the Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, worked at Accenture for 27 years, leading the organization's Oporto office for 15 years. He moved to São Paulo, Brazil, in 2010, where he led Accenture's Infrastructure and Transportation area in Latin America until the end of 2014, when he returned to Portugal. He is now taking on the challenge of leading Boyden Portugal's office in Porto.

For Bernardo Costa Macedo "the organizational aspect, human resources and their leadership is the one that stands out as the most important dimension for the success of organizations" at a time when digital transformation is at the top of every agenda.

According to Boyden Portugal's new Partner, "Boyden's recognition as a company of excellence in the provision of Human Resources services has given me the opportunity to work in the area where I believe the greatest value can be generated for companies. And contrary to what technology may seem, the emergence of new digital tools and habits has revealed the increasingly imperative need to hire Executive Search services.".

"The challenge of being a Partner at Boyden reinforces the importance and responsibility of professional recruitment for the development and growth of companies and markets, since human resources are a company's most important asset and it must take good care of them, whether in attracting or retaining talent."says Bernardo Costa Macedo.
