Pedersen & Partners Extends Presence In Asia
International executive search firm Pedersen & Partners has opened offices in Singapore and Bangkok, bringing the number of offices in Asia to seven.
The new offices and the existing office in Jakarta will be managed by Gary Williams, the newly appointed Managing Director for South-East Asia (SEA). Mr Williams joins Pedersen & Partners from an international executive search firm, where he had been the managing director for South-East Asia since 2010. He brings 22 years of experience in executive search and management consulting.
Supporting Mr Williams will be an additional new team member, Mike Green, who joins the firm as Principal in a regional role, focusing mainly on SEA and China. Mr Green has over 10 years of executive search experience in SEA and China and had a particular focus on the industrial and life science sectors.
Also part of the new Singapore office is Mr Laurent Pinna, Principal. Mr Pinna joined the Pedersen & Partners SEA team in 2012 and has conducted searches in SEA since 2010, focusing on the FMCG and manufacturing sectors.
“I am enthusiastic about joining Pedersen & Partners as it is one of the fastest growing executive search firms with proven results in the global emerging markets. I am looking forward to the challenge of developing the brand across South-East Asia and bringing the firm’s service and search execution standards to the local markets. Pedersen & Partners work globally as a single team, and this will be a strong benefit for cross-border searches moving into Asia or out into the rest of the world,” commented Mr Williams.
“I am proud to announce that Pedersen & Partners now has wholly owned offices in 50 countries. After successfully building the brand in Indonesia over the past two years, we are excited to open offices in Singapore and Thailand. A high profile executive search professional such as Mr Williams will be a strong asset in helping us with this expansion. He is certainly the right fit for Pedersen & Partners and for our clients,” said Michael Al-Nassir, Partner and Head of MEA, India and SEA at Pedersen & Partners.
