NEW YORK, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Options Group, a leading global executive search and strategic consulting firm, announces the hire of John Carreras as Executive Director, Head of Options Group's newest office in Miami. He will lead the private wealth management (PWM) practice in the Americas and will spearhead the launch of this office. The additional location and senior hire are a part of Options Group's expansion plans to serve the growing demand for financial recruitment and advisory services worldwide.
"We continue to execute on our goals to grow our geographical footprint and hire leading recruitment specialists to address the priorities of our clients. Over the last six months, we launched an office in Frankfurt, and hired additional information technology, commodities, asset management, and investment banking consultants," said Options Group co-Founder Michael Karp.
Mr. Carreras joins Options Group following a distinguished career as a private wealth management executive recruiter. He was most recently President and Founder of Private Client Advisors LLC (PCA), an executive recruitment firm that specialized in wealth advisor placements. Mr. Carreras developed a successful business model at PCA that decreased the cost per hire with improved time-efficiency for clients. His client list includes some of the largest global brokerage firms, and his candidate roster is comprised of the most coveted banking teams in the Americas and Switzerland.
"John brings to Options Group a large, exclusive community of the world's best private bankers and some of the largest global private wealth management firms. We are very pleased to have John as a part of our team. He will be highly complementary to our existing PWM practices in Zurich and Sao Paulo," said Ike Suri, Options Group co-Founder. "We continue to see an opportunity to facilitate a growing unfulfilled need in PWM, and following the success of our Zurich office launch in 2008, we have increased our commitment and we are seeking to hire additional consultants in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia."
