Mr. Proctor will be based in Korn/Ferry's Chicago office.  

Mr. Proctor rejoins Korn/Ferry after nearly 13 years with another international executive search firm, where he served as a leader within the Global Financial Officers Practice, an active member of the CEO & Board of Directors Practice, and the Partner-in-Charge of the Chicago Office. Previously, he served clients within the general industry practice of Korn/Ferry's New York City Office.

Throughout his career, Mr. Proctor has led several prominent recruiting and assessment engagements across multiple industries with a diverse client base including Fortune 500, mid-cap public and private companies.  

"Bryan brings to Korn/Ferry strong industry knowledge and deep client relationships. His extensive cross industry experience, including expertise within the industrial manufacturing and services and consumer durables market, will be a great fit for our firm," said Joe Griesedieck, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Board & CEO Services, Korn/Ferry International.

"Bryan not only has a proven track record, having led several marquee searches at many of the top organizations in the United States and across the globe, but he has also established a reputation as a top notch leadership advisor with a keen understanding of the complex issues facing his clients," said Bob Damon, President, Americas, Korn/Ferry International.

"Korn/Ferry has made several sound, strategic moves to differentiate itself in the market, putting a premium on innovation and a strong focus on global client service. Leadership advisory is increasingly becoming both an art and science, and I share in Korn/Ferry's enthusiasm in combining both to create meaningful value for our clients. I am excited to rejoin the firm and look forward to building upon their continued success," said Proctor.

While Mr. Proctor's clients are global, he has also established himself within the Chicago community. He is an active member of the Chicago Club and the Economic Club of Chicago.
