Hightech Partners Boosts European Presence
Digital-focused executive search firm Hightech Partners (HTP) recently expanded with the addition of international human resources executive Roberta De Ponti as a partner.
“International reach, passion for technology, and top-quality HR services are the DNA of Hightech Partners,” said Raffaele Jacovelli and Bert Vermeiren, managing directors of HTP.
“Roberta has all of those and is therefore a wonderful add-on to our team. Roberta also shares our vision on the importance of digital talent development as a key enabler for the competitiveness of European enterprises and the European economy as a whole. She strongly believes in diversity, inclusion, and sustainability, priorities that all our HTP clients today articulate when entrusting us with executive search and leadership consulting assignments. We look forward to our collaboration.”
Throughout her career, Ms. De Ponti has been active in board searches, succession planning, board effectiveness, diversity, and other critical governance matters. Her 18 years’ experience at IDC, a global provider of market intelligence and advisory services for the technology industry, has enabled her to build an international corporate network and long-lasting relationships with C-level executives, clients, and partners. Ms. De Ponti has an international profile having worked across Europe (Italy, the U.K., Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the Nordics regions). She was active at some of the major technology market players such as Apple, Philips, Cap Gemini, and IDC. Diversity and inclusion are core aspects of her work, the search firm notes.
“I am excited to be joining Hightech Partners and its outstanding recognition in the executive search market,” said Ms. De Ponti. “I consider the company’s established international presence along with its broad range of HR consulting services a perfect fit with my international background, my interests, and passion. I look forward to this exciting opportunity and to bring my personal contribution to the HTP team for the global company’s success.
