MU, a long-standing leading Global Executive Search and Talent Advisory firm, appoints Richard Moore as CEO.

Richard joined MU in 2001 and has had a long successful career within our company. During this time, he has undertaken many important roles in the company working with clients and colleagues across EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific region. Since 2014 Richard has been part of the Group Management and since 2017 he has also served as a Director on the Group Board.

I have worked closely together with Richard for many years and know that with his track record and his deep knowledge about the company and our clients' needs, together with his personal qualities, he will be a very successful CEO for MU. Over that last years, we have transitioned MU business into the premium segment, appointed our first equity partners and significantly enhanced our intellectual capital and infrastructure. This appointment will strengthen our development still further and ensure we meet and exceed the needs of our clients in the decades to comeChairman of the Board Roger Hagafors
