Introducing New AESC Member Firm SommerGroup


SommerGroup, based in Chile, is a specialized, multidisciplinary team of over 30 professionals providing retained executive search services to both local and international companies in the Financial Services, Retail, Mining, Utilities, Energy and Natural Resources industries.

SommerGroup was founded in 1995. The firm’s Partners are Rodolfo Sommer Uribe-Echevarría, Ximena Rodríguez Concha, and Sebastián Pedraza Villate.

The firm provides retained executive search services for senior executive and middle management positions.

Their partners have been active in AESC events even before applying for membership, so we are excited to have them with us officially. Having SommerGroup join the AESC adds a strong high-quality presence in the Chile market, as well as in South America overall.

To tend to the needs of our clients, SommerGroup has affiliated with IMD International Search Group www.imd-search.com. Founded in 1972, IMD is a Top-15 world-level organization in global search, with offices in the main markets and business centers around the world.
