The SpenglerFox Group appoints Filip Lerno as Non-Executive Chairman

The SpenglerFox Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Filip Lerno as Non-Executive Chairman, effective 1st February 2020.

Filip brings over 20 years of experience within the Premier Search sector. He has worked as a Senior Executive at both Spencer Stuart and Heidrick & Struggles, specializing in the Private Equity and Industrial Practices where he successfully conducted a multitude of senior searches across EMEA.

One of the key reasons I joined SpenglerFox as non-Executive Chairman in February this year is their unremitting dedication to and care for the people who make up the business – our clients, candidates, and employees. SpenglerFox is a company that genuinely demonstrates that it is a people business each and every day.

Like most people little did I know that we were about to face a crisis like no other outside of global warfare. The world around us seems suddenly unstable, lives are put on hold and perhaps lived in isolation away from friends and loved ones. In such circumstances, it’s understandable that we may be preoccupied, restless and anxious as so much of what is happening feels out of our control, said Mr Lerno

Filip Lerno Bio

Born in Ghent, Belgium, Filip graduated in Law, Applied Economics as well as Port and Maritime Sciences from Ghent University. He studied for his post-graduate MBA at the Vlerick School of Management. He is also an Alumni of Insead I.E.P. Program.

As Chairman of the SpenglerFox Group Board Filip will work closely with the CEO and the SpenglerFox Group Management Team to support the future strategic direction of the business as the Group grows both organically and through well-placed acquisitions.

Jens Friedrich, CEO at the SpenglerFox Group said

“I am delighted to welcome Filip Lerno onto the Board of the SpenglerFox Group. His experience in the world of Senior Search and Human Capital Solutions will act as an added impetus to our overall business offering to our Clients around the globe. He has a proven track record in connecting the best senior talents with the world’s top companies and I am convinced he will be equally successful in helping us at SpenglerFox to implement our strategy and further grow our business.”

SpenglerFox is a global Executive Search and Human Capital Solutions consultancy with a coverage in 35 countries.
