Proud To Be Global

When Marco M. Alemagna decided to found a search company in 2005, his vision was to create a new industry standard. He aspired to create a firm which would provide the service levels of boutique executive search at an international and global level. As well as the firm´s own international offices, Open has now a global reach.
