Heidrick & Struggles Launches Mobility Practice

Exciting Mobility Sector Growth Creates Immediate Demand for a New Generation
of Leaders

CHICAGO, April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobility is revolutionizing the
landscape of how enterprises around the world are competing, driving new
revenue, developing new markets and extending their value propositions. In
response, Heidrick & Struggles International, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSII), the premier
provider of Executive Search and Leadership Consulting services worldwide,
today launched its Global Mobility Practice, co-led by Kelly Kay, Managing
Partner Software and Mobility and Michael Flagg, Managing Partner
Communications, Hardware, Systems, Semiconductor and Mobility.

With the continued aggressive growth of tablet computing, smart phones and
devices, mobility is transforming how companies operate. As a result, this has
created high demand for a new segment of executives to lead these critical
up-and-coming business units.

"Corporations from all corners of the globe are eager to crack the mobility
code and its potential to impact growth," said Krishnan Rajagopalan, Managing
Partner, Global Technology & Services Practice. "The Mobility Practice is on
the cutting edge of this sector's evolution. We understand the business acumen
required in the next generation of mobility leaders. In fact, our team's
counsel and insight to find the right talent, as well as generate future
leadership strategies, has already changed the game for many of our clients."

According to Kay, the number of smart devices will soon out-number traditional
devices, changing the way we think and interact from personal applications to
business functions. "There is no doubt that industries are being transformed
by the mobility wave," added Kay. "In order to evolve, all industries will
need to assess areas of opportunity rapidly. They will need to adopt a mobile
strategy, and most importantly, find dynamic executives to lead these
fast-paced business units to remain competitive and relevant."

"Leaders across all industries are adopting mobile practices to drive their
growth and maintain competitiveness," underscored Flagg. "This momentum
clearly indicates the emphasis organizations are placing on finding the right
leaders – companies need to bring in world class talent to devise and
implement their mobility strategy."
