NEW YORK, May 25, 2011 -

Options Group, a leading global executive search and strategic consulting
firm, announces the hire of John Carreras as Executive Director, Head of
Options Group's newest office in Miami. He will lead the private wealth
management (PWM) practice in the Americas and will spearhead the launch of
this office. The additional location and senior hire are a part of Options
Group's expansion plans to serve the growing demand for financial recruitment
and advisory services worldwide.

"We continue to execute on our goals to grow our geographical footprint
and hire leading recruitment specialists to address the priorities of our
clients. Over the last six months, we launched an office in Frankfurt, and
hired additional information technology, commodities, asset management, and
investment banking consultants," said Options Group co-Founder Michael Karp.

Mr. Carreras joins Options Group following a distinguished career as a
private wealth management executive recruiter. He was most recently President
and Founder of Private Client Advisors LLC (PCA), an executive recruitment
firm that specialized in wealth advisor placements. Mr. Carreras developed a
successful business model at PCA that decreased the cost per hire with
improved time-efficiency for clients. His client list includes some of the
largest global brokerage firms, and his candidate roster is comprised of the
most coveted banking teams in the Americas and Switzerland.

"John brings to Options Group a large, exclusive community of the world's
best private bankers and some of the largest global private wealth management
firms. We are very pleased to have John as a part of our team. He will be
highly complementary to our existing PWM practices in Zurich and Sao Paulo,"
said Ike Suri, Options Group co-Founder. "We continue to see an opportunity
to facilitate a growing unfulfilled need in PWM, and following the success of
our Zurich office launch in 2008, we have increased our commitment and we are
seeking to hire additional consultants in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia."

Options Group is headquartered in New York with offices in London,
Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Newport Beach, Boston, Sao Paulo, Mumbai,
Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo.
