Executive search firm Boyden World Corp. named Trina Gordon president and CEO, formalizing a post that the Chicago-based executive has held on an interim basis since last December.
She succeeds Chris Clarke, who stepped down last December after 11 years with the Hawthorne, New York-based company. The firm also named Gerhard Raisig to chairman from interim chairman and managing partner of Boyden Germany.
Gordon, 55, earlier was managing director of the Chicago office and chairman of the board. Her second two-year term as chairman expired in May and had exceeded the firm’s term limit. She is one of the highest-ranking women in the executive recruitment industry.
“We are moving forward with a new global strategy so it was an opportune time in the evolution of the firm as we built upon an old strategy and took it in a new direction,” she said in an interview. The new strategy will use a global account model for client companies growing or expanding worldwide.
Gordon joined Boyden in 1990 from William H. Clark Associates Inc. where she was a partner when the two companies merged. She has been a member of Boyden’s board since 2001.
