Crain’s Cleveland Business – Executive search with a European flair

First, Minneapolis. Now, the world.

That has been the expansion track over the last year of Mansfield & Associates, an executive search firm in Cleveland.

The firm recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its Minnesota regional office, headed by David Bares, former manager of executive talent acquisition for Best Buy.

Now, it has opened a two-person European office in Budapest, Hungary, that is led by Robert Mansfield, son of company president Ann Mansfield. Mr. Mansfield previously worked in Hungary and Serbia for the Simonyi Consulting Center, a provider of business development services at the University of Pecs in Hungary. — Mark Dodosh, Crain’s Cleveland Business
