They have conducted more than 950 C-level executive searches, 2,500 leadership assessments, 50 board and 200 management audits worldwide! It’s not only about the numbers though. More importantly, it’s the quality of Johto’s work that is kept consistently high for every assignment, at all times. It’s about ulilizing sound expertise built on understanding the business operations and value chains of industrial, energy and professional services companies. It’s about knowing the Finnish executive market and how to best match leadership with the objectives of the companies they can call their clients.

Jaana Pollari, Senior Partner: “By joining the Agilium Worldwide group of executive search consultants we are now able to serve our Finnish customers abroad too. Most of our clients operate internationally, and have been asking us for additional support outside of Finland. We are looking forward to enjoying fruitful collaboration with our new Agilium colleagues all over the world. Quality is extremely important for us. All the discussions we have had with Agilium member firms so far have convinced us that this is one major factor that unites us. Of course, besides serving our Finnish customers, we are eager and excited to support Agilium members when they need to search and hire executives and senior talents in Finland for their clients too.”
