The new business will be led by Executive Search Managing Director Nick Marsh and will focus on working with our existing network of clients as well as global Fortune 500 companies, private equity organisations and fast growing small to medium sized enterprises in Asia. Assignments will be delivered across the region and searches are currently being commissioned in India, China and Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.
26th March 2012, London, UK/Hong Kong – Harvey Nash Group plc, a £500m global executive and professional recruitment and leadership services group, announces the expansion of its geographic reach in the Asia Pacific region through the opening of an office in Hong Kong, China.
Nick Marsh commented: “We are excited to launch our new Asia Pacific business in 2012, the Chinese Year of the Dragon. We have been working with global clients in the region for some time now, so it makes sense for us to open our Asia Pacific Executive Search and Leadership Services Headquarters in Hong Kong. Demand from our European and US clients for executive search capability in the region has been increasing and many clients are growing their Asian businesses to capitalise on higher growth emerging markets. In addition, focus on diversity and gender balance in the Boardroom has now become increasingly important in Asia as well as Europe and the US. Our unique proposition and proven delivery capability in this rapidly developing market for advice and consulting, will further benefit many Asian Boardroom professionals and Human Resource functions.”
Albert Ellis, Chief Executive of Harvey Nash Group plc commented: “After recently announcing strong trading results, I’m delighted that Harvey Nash has decided to focus in the Asia Pacific emerging markets and particularly throughout China in line with our Group’s strategy to expand from our base in Vietnam into Hong Kong and Australia in the first half of 2012.”
