DTZ’s new chief executive Paul Idzik has made two more senior appointments in his quest to restructure the company.
Idzik has returned to his old company Barclays to recruit Bob Rickert as global chief operating officer and Isaac Krymolowski as global head of consulting and research.
Rickert was formerly Barclays chief information officer of global retail and commercial banking while Krymolowski was Barclays head of strategy and planning, responsible for corporate strategy formulation.
Both will sit on the newly-created group executive committee.
The pair follow Serkan Bektas who will join from Barclays as global head of capital markets in the second quarter of this year.
Rickert and Krymolowski will join before the end of March.
As DTZ’s Global COO, Rickert will assume global responsibility for all non-finance support functions. He will chair the company’s operating committee.
Krymolowski will oversee all regional operations for DTZ, capitalising on the expertise built during a career in the consulting profession and in setting strategic direction for large corporate firms.
He will also lead DTZ’s internal strategy development processes.
Paul Idzik said: ‘It is our clear intention to consolidate and support DTZ’s outstanding client service by underpinning the organisation with best-in-class management and operational systems.’
Rickert said: ‘DTZ has a worldwide reputation for understanding its clients’ business aims and providing professional services that are among the best in the industry.
'I look forward very much to working with the teams across the business to put the right systems and management support in place to enable them to be even better at capturing and exploiting all potential avenues and opportunities to deliver the very best commercial results to our clients.’
DTZ is undergoing a consultation to make a further 100 redundancies as part of a cost cutting measure.
