Markus Zanola joins Eliot Partnership bringing almost two decades of Executive Search experience, with a particular focus on the Insurance, Technology and Logistics sectors. Most recently he has been a Partner with a boutique Swiss Executive Search firm and previously he worked for 15 years with one of the big five Executive Search firms in Zurich.
Michaela Brug has focused for over a decade on Executive Search for senior level appointments in the Continental European, UK and the London (re)insurance markets, working initially for a boutique firm and then founding an Executive Search sector specialist. She joins Eliot Partnership after a long-standing relationship with the business.
In their newly-created positions, both will work with the firm's management team to build the firm’s fourth hub in Zurich, growing Eliot Partnership’s global footprint and complementing the established offices in London, New York and Singapore.
Markus Zanola added:
"I am delighted to be joining Andrew and the global team at Eliot Partnership. They have differentiated themselves from their peers with their pure (re)insurance focus, in-house industry expertise and global offering. Adding Zurich to the existing major hubs of London, New York and Singapore will strengthen Eliot Partnership’s focus and the business’ efforts in meeting the increasing demand for top talent. I very much look forward to working with the Eliot Partnership team as they continue to find innovative ways to add value for their clients as well as aiding the firm in its strategic global development.”
Commenting on their appointment Andrew Eliot, Founder and Managing Partner of Eliot Partnership, said:
“It has long been a desire of ours to establish and develop a Continental European presence. With Markus and Michaela, we believe we have created an exceptional team with great potential to service both our existing and new clients across Europe and as part of the wider Eliot Partnership global effort.”
Eliot Partnership has a wide range of clients from the world’s largest insurance companies and brokers to medium-sized businesses, to smaller “boutique” companies and entrepreneurial start-ups. Eliot Partnership works with boards, CEOs and their senior advisors, including business and functional heads, to fill senior roles across the Insurance and Reinsurance sector, and leads domestic and international assignments from offices in London, New York, Singapore and Zurich.
