Career Partners International hosts Global Annual Meeting and Celebrates 25th Anniversary!


Career Partners International celebrates twenty-five years assisting organizations in achieving their business objectives through their talent and welcomes new partners to the team.

Chapel Hill, NC (February 20, 2012) – Career Partners International hosted its Annual General Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and celebrated its 25th Anniversary!  The company, established in 1987 to provide outplacement services primarily in North America, was founded by seven firms – Career Partners International-Houston; Executive Career Services; Hazell & Associates; Keystone Partners; Resnik Partners; The Ayers Group; and Torchiana, Mastrov & Sapiro.  Today, the original seven founding firms remain equity owners of Career Partners International and have been joined by 62 other firms from around the globe to create one of the world’s largest and most successful talent management consultancies recognized for its excellent services. 

With rich roots in outplacement, Career Partners International expanded its depth and breadth of capabilities over the 25 year span to support its clients and now helps organizations effectively assess, engage, develop and transition employees.

 “We are excited to reach this significant milestone,” said Elaine Varelas, Chairman of the Board for Career Partners International.  “Our success can be attributed to the passion of our equity partner firms and their staffs for helping our clients succeed in the development and implementation of effective talent management strategies.”

“Clients and their employees are at the epicenter of all that we do,” added David P. Hemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Career Partners International.  “Helping them achieve their strategic business objectives is our primary goal.”

Hemmer, who has been with the organization for more than twelve years, has seen a number of changes.    “We’ve had to be responsive and resilient to the ever-changing marketplace. Through strategic growth, we’ve expanded both in size and capabilities over the last 25 years to become a significant international consultancy with expertise in assessments, engagement, executive coaching, leadership development and career transition,” said Hemmer. “We look forward to continuing our evolution in support of our clients and their business demands.”

In addition to conducting regular business at the Annual General Meeting, Career Partners International expanded its footprint and service capabilities by welcoming Reach Human Capital and Career Compass Canada to the team!  Reach Human Capital will provide services in the greater Memphis area of Tennessee while Career Compass Canada will service Hamilton, Ontario.   

“We are excited about our continued strategic growth to support our clients globally,” commented Hemmer, “and we look forward to the next 25 years!”
