Farber is excited to announce that Ambit Search is joining its Interim Management & Executive Search practice.

Farber and Ambit approach search with similar philosophies—valuing a holistic, business-minded approach to executive search with a focus on long-term candidate relationships. This alignment, coupled with our combined networks and decades of experience, will benefit both candidates and clients—placing the right talent with the right organizations.

With almost 20 years in the search industry, Joanne Elek, the co-founder of Ambit, brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to the merged practice. Formed in 2007, Ambit has focused on placing mid-to-senior level roles in finance and operations, including accounting, finance, tax, treasury, audit, risk, human resources, and procurement. Working with leading public and private corporations, Ambit’s reputation is built on developing strong relationships with both employers and candidates.

“The team at Ambit truly complements our philosophy and approach to search. We’re thrilled to have them join us at Farber,” says Charlene Bergman, Managing Director and leader of Farber’s Interim Management & Executive Search practice.

Joanne, who will join Charlene as co-Managing Director of the joint practice says, “Farber’s business is growing rapidly and reaches well beyond search and into many complimentary service areas. We believe that joining forces will strengthen our service offering and provide an even stronger talent pool for our clients and more opportunities for our candidates.”
