Heidrick & Struggles (Nasdaq: HSII), a premier provider of executive search, leadership consulting and culture shaping worldwide, has appointed Flavio Zollo as a Partner in its Global Financial Services Practice.

Based in Milan, Zollo will focus on strengthening the firm’s search and leadership advisory offering in insurance and consumer finance, as well as on operations and technology roles in the financial services sector.

“Flavio brings more than 15 years’ executive search experience both regionally and globally to our Milan office,” said Niccolo Calabresi, Partner-in-Charge of Heidrick & Struggles, Italy. “As a trusted advisor to business leaders in the insurance, consumer finance and technology sectors, his industry expertise will bring tremendous value to our clients in Italy and across Europe.”

Flavio was formerly an executive director at a leading executive search firm; prior to that, he set up a boutique advisory firm, specializing in the provision of business intelligence and media relations to large Italian corporations. 

“I look forward to joining a global firm dedicated to helping our clients identify transformational leaders,” Zollo said. “As Europe continues to grapple with uncertainty resulting from Brexit and an increasingly volatile operating environment, it’s more important than ever to have differentiating talent in place that can drive organizations forward.”

Zollo holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University, Milan.
