Tremayne Elson appointed new CEO of Antal International

Global recruitment franchise Antal International has announced a restructure of its leadership and a series of internal board appointments, with Tremayne Elson appointed as the company’s new chief executive. Founder and chairman Tony Goodwin remains firmly involved at the head of the company and will be concentrating on the franchise network.

Tremayne, who first joined Antal 19 years ago, was responsible for building up the company’s extremely successful Russian operation and has lately been focused on growing Antal’s office network in Germany and the wider DACH (German-speaking) region.

Among those joining Tony and Tremayne at director level is Leticia Herran, who takes on the newly created role of sales and operations director, a main board appointment. Leticia has been with the organisation for 13 years and was previously responsible for the development and management of Antal’s business in Spain and Spanish-speaking Latin America.

Mike Ryall joins the main board to strengthen the alignment of Antal’s own branded offices with those of the financial and administrative recruiter, Parkside, which Antal acquired from Ochre House in 2011.

Doug Bugie, who has created, developed and sold recruitment businesses in over 40 countries during his long career, is rejoining Antal on a semi-permanent basis to advise the board and support the global growth of the franchise network.

Antal’s current Group MD, Graeme Read, will be leaving the company to take a well-earned break after 17 years’ dedicated service and Paul Russell, Group FD, who has been associated with Antal for 16 years, will also be moving on in December following completion of an in-depth handover of ongoing projects.

Tony Goodwin commented: “Although I am naturally sorry to be losing two people who have contributed so much to the development of the organisation in the past, I am also tremendously excited about the ideas, energy and commitment that Tremayne, Leticia and Mike will bring to their new roles.

The recent sale of the controlling interest in our Polish operation has provided us with the resources to make considerable extra investments in the business including a brand new website, mobile applications, and even greater marcomms support to our wholly-owned, franchise and joint venture capabilities. I firmly believe that we now have a main board team in place that will take us to the next stage of our global expansion.”
