The official office opening of Darwin Rhodes Group’s executive search brand, Edison Morgan, will be celebrated in Prague today. Representatives of Darwin Rhodes, local business and others will be the guests of the Ambassador Linda Duffield who will host a reception at the British Embassy to mark the company’s arrival in Prague.

Darwin Rhodes, the fast-growing global specialists in professional financial services and insurance recruitment, view Prague as the region’s financial services centre and a key platform towards building the business in Eastern Europe. The Group provides specialist executive search support and will work closely with the large multinational companies who have delegated Prague as their European headquarters.

The Prague office is led by Country Manager Peter Kotka and the team has increased to five, with consultants Natalie Dvorakova, James Williamson, Alena Brejchova and Renata Meyerova joining recently.

Peter Dunphy, CEO, Darwin Rhodes said:
“Our expansion here reflects the growing influence of Prague as an important European commercial and financial centre and the positive outlook for business. We are optimistic for our business development in this part of Central Europe and are committed to further growth in the months and years ahead.”

The British Ambassador to the Czech Republic, H.E Linda Duffield, welcomes Darwin Rhodes’ arrival in Prague and will be officially marking the opening of the office at a reception held at the British Embassy.

H.E Linda Duffield, British Ambassador to the Czech Republic, said:
“I am pleased to see a leading UK firm expand its operation here in the Czech Republic, a country which has seen extraordinary changes in the last two decades, strong growth, an expanding financial services sector, and where there are great opportunities for British business. Darwin Rhodes is also just one example of the many companies to have used the excellent services offered by UK Trade and Investment. I hope that successful relationship will continue.”

Darwin Rhodes Group already has a strong Central and Eastern Europe business, working with clients in Poland, Hungary, Romania, Russia and Ukraine.
