40 years in 40 countries: Horton International

London, September 1st, 2018 – It all started with the idea of creating a multi-cultural executive search group. The founder and namesake, Robert Horton, had his own consulting office in Connecticut in the United States. In the 1980s, Horton began its international expansion into Europe, the Asia Pacific region and the Americas. Horton Group International Ltd was originally formed as a UK-based holding company in 1995 by the founding Horton International partners in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Australia and Spain. It continues to serve as the governing body for the firm, establishing global policies, procedures and guidelines for all international operations. The company’s goal has always been to develop new markets, establish additional offices and find partners in order to extend the global reach. Now, 40 years later, the Horton International Group is represented in 40 countries around the world.

Gerard Dietrich, the French founder of Horton International and the Managing Director of Horton International in France, says: “Our organization is very stable and strongly based on friendly cooperation. Most of our network partners have been a part of the Group for a long time.”  Robert Horton’s vision was to create a multi-national network with stable values and he achieved both with great success. “Bob gave his family name as the company’s name. He was a very demanding personality and was the driving force behind the Horton group. Unfortunately, he suffered from cancer and died young” concludes Gerard Dietrich.   

The area of strength for most Horton affiliates is that they have agile and responsive teams consisting of between 5-7 partners. Some Horton countries are larger but the focus on local expertise, good communication and efficiency remains the same. Thus, Horton is local and global at the same time. All partners are local entrepreneurs in a medium-sized company.

Andreas Wartenberg, Chairman of the board says: “I am very proud to be part of this 40-year success story and to support the company in further expanding its global presence and strategic vision. This stable performance demonstrates our continued determination to expand our capacity in all major economies of the world and our commitment to new and emerging markets. I’m looking forward to the next steps we’ll take in the next few years.”
