September 2015: The executive head hunter and interim manager solutions company, Annona Search has been acquired by TRS Staffing Solutions Limited (TRS).

Chris Arnold, Director of Annona Search, says: “Bringing the Annona Search business to TRS makes sense on every level. You don’t need a Venn diagram to show the alignment of values; with a focus on customer service, quality and ethics it would look more like an eclipse. The complementary market focus and service offering will make a real difference to the combined client base.”

Mike Innes, Regional Director of TRS, says: “With uncertainty in the world’s economies, and the lower appetite for risk, businesses are expected to do more with less. Innovation and operational agility are game changers for competitive advantage, and these are achieved by having the right leaders in the right places. Annona Search is critically positioned to identify and select the best possible, not just the best available, leaders and future leaders for its clients.”

Established in 2013 as a boutique, specialist search firm for Procurement and Supply Chain leaders in the Consumer industry, Annona Search has grown organically to support businesses in Life Sciences, Chemicals and Industrial sectors.

TRS Staffing Solutions is a global Professional, Engineering, Technical and Field Services recruitment business. Since 1984, and through a network of international offices, TRS has been recruiting talented professionals for many of the most challenging and complex capital-intensive projects around the world.
