Principal Connections, one of Ireland’s premier executive recruitment agencies, has announced plans to launch new offices in the west.

The executive recruitment firm who provide retained executive search, interim management, non-executive recruitment services as well as leadership consulting solutions to many of Ireland’s top companies, will locate its new offices in the Headford.

The move follows a successful year for the executive recruiters with offices in Dublin 2 who continue to play a significant role in many of Ireland’s most high-profile appointments.

With a team of nine, the firm is now set for further growth. A rigorous recruitment campaign is underway for the Galway office as the executive search specialists seek to build out its team.

Galway native and Managing Partner, Pat O’Donnell said that the move will see Principal Connections become Ireland’s only global retained executive search agency with a dedicated office serving the West, North West, South and South West.

“As the only Irish member firm of global top 25 executive search group, Agilium Worldwide LLC, we naturally pride ourselves on our significant capability to identify, assess and attract elite executive talent from the global marketplace,” he added.

He said that the Headford expansion would enable the company ‘to better serve the increasing necessity for top tier executive and non-executive talent of our clients in regional locations such as Galway, Mayo, Westmeath, Limerick, Cork among others.”
