The Jacobson Group, a Chicago-based insurance staffing firm, announced it is merging with London-based executive search company ejsSearch, which serves European and international markets.
The deal is expected to close in April. Terms were not disclosed.
“As the industry becomes more global in nature, there is an overwhelming demand for a single solution to insurance talent regardless of geographic location,” said Gregory “Greg” Jacobson, co-chief executive officer of The Jacobson Group. “This merger delivers a much-needed integrated one-team approach to client relationships for insurance search cross-border.”
EjsSearch will operate under The Jacobson Group brand and brothers Greg Jacobson and Richard Jacobson will continue as co-CEOs. Barbara Schönhofer, CEO of ejsSearch, will join The Jacobson Group’s executive management team as senior vice president and CEO, global executive search.
