CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heidrick & Struggles International (Nasdaq:HSII), commemorates its 60th anniversary with a series of events -- including the ringing of The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell – all designed to remember its heritage, reinforce its core values, recognize employees and clients, and reinforce innovation for future growth.

"Assisting clients build winning leadership teams is the reason Heidrick & Struggles was founded 60 years ago by Gardner Heidrick and John E. Struggles. And, it remains the foundation for what we do on behalf of the many organizations we serve. Since 1953, we have been cultivating deep relationships with the world's most talented individuals on behalf of the world's most successful companies. Today, our team continues the rich tradition of our founders, of shaping our industry - and many others - around the world," said Jory Marino, interim CEO of Heidrick & Struggles.

Through a blend of organic growth and strategic acquisitions – most recently Senn Delaney, the world's leading culture shaping firm – Heidrick & Struggles has expanded globally and driven leadership innovation at the highest levels. All the while, the firm has maintained its commitment to superior client service and leadership results.

"On November 15th, 1953, Gardner Heidrick and John E. Struggles opened a small office in downtown Chicago. At the time, there was no such thing as executive search. But, they had determination and vision, and today, that vision has translated into a $10 billion industry," said Gerry Roche, senior chairman and 50 year firm veteran. "We continue to have the brightest business minds anywhere, and our clients know we will go beyond what is expected. That is what Heidrick & Struggles is all about."

"A company's success is dependent upon building a top leadership team and Heidrick & Struggles has been a longstanding, strategic partner of PPG for decades," said Charles E. Bunch, Chairman & CEO, PPG Industries. "PPG congratulates Heidrick & Struggles on reaching this milestone. As one of the firm's first clients, PPG is pleased to be a part of its history – the longevity of our partnership speaks volumes about Heidrick & Struggles' value to our business. We wish the firm continued success in the future."

In addition, Heidrick & Struggles is marking the milestone with a variety of employee and client celebrations around the world. The firm launched 60 Years in Leadership, a community-based volunteer program designed to rally employees globally and give back to the communities where they live and work. Programs are set to take place throughout 2013 and into 2014.

"We are trusted advisors to many of the world's top companies finding the most innovative and distinguished leaders. We are very proud of our history, and are equally excited about our future," said Marino.
