LOS ANGELES, Jan 22, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Korn/Ferry International (NYSE: KFY), a premier global provider of talent management solutions, today announced that Rob Grandy will relocate to Hong Kong to head up the Firm's Financial Services and Board Consulting business in Asia Pacific. He will assume responsibilities for the Regional Market Leader role previously held by David Hui, who will transition the role to Rob over the next three months. Mr. Grandy previously held the role of Global Managing Market Director which will now be filled by Mike Franzino in New York.
