First-quarter net income fell 29.9% at Heidrick & Struggles International Inc. (NASD: HSII). The Chicago-based executive search firm said profit fell amid a decrease in operating income in its Americas region, driven by a decline in revenue from the financial services industry. Investment in its Asia Pacific region also weighed on profit, the company said.
