NGS Global LLC, a global executive search firm, announces the opening of an office in Dubai and the appointment of industry veteran Karla Dorsch as Managing Partner. Ms. Dorsch brings years of experience in the financial services industry and is a member of the firm’s Financial Services practice.

Prior to joining NGS Global, Ms. Dorsch served as CEO of Piedmont Ltd. – a boutique executive search firm that she founded more than 20 years ago, and which is based in London and the UAE.“

Having been in executive search for over 25 years, I was approached on many occasions to join a firm with global capabilities.
