Amrop grows in Latin America with new firm in Panama

Amrop is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Panama, expanding the organization’s presence to fourteen offices in Latin America.

Operating as Amrop, the group’s newest office is led by Rebeca de Rojas, Managing Partner. Rebeca is an experienced banker who worked for 25 years with Chase Manhattan Bank and J.P. Morgan Chase as Executive Recruitment Manager and Director of Private Banking International in Panama. She holds a dual Master´s degree in Human Resources Management and Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Columbia University (New York). She currently sits on the Board of Eurocentro Panama, Museo Explora and the National Mirror Committee for the ISO 26000 on Social Responsibility.

Operating from Panama City, the new office will provide executive search services to a range of clients, with particular focus in the Banking/Financial Services, Consumer goods and Retail sectors.

“As the fastest growing economy in Central America, Panama´s demand for executive search is increasing as companies do not have the time or the resources to carry out senior-level recruitment to meet their rapidly changing business objectives. I believe our partnership with Amrop will significantly enhance Panamanian organizations´ opportunities to find high-calibre leaders because we understand the current trends of the local market and can tailor the search process around the world accordingly. We look forward to a long-term and successful position in this country,” said Rebeca de Rojas, Managing Partner.

Ulrich Dade, Amrop Chairman, said, “Amrop’s Board is happy to welcome our newest member firm in Panama. With the backing of our Partners in Peru, Panama promises to grow into an important presence in Amrop’s Latin America region, dedicated to the highest quality executive search work for which Amrop is known.”
