Pedersen & Partners Continues Expansion In Asia
Pedersen & Partners, an international executive search firm, has announced the opening of a new office in Hong Kong, the firm’s 53rd wholly-owned office globally and its 8th office in Asia.
Gautier Vasseur, Partner in charge of CIS and Greater China at Pedersen & Partners, will manage the newly established office. Supporting Mr Vasseur will be Caroline Lim, who joins the firm as Client Partner and Head of Legal, Compliance and Regulatory and Corporate Governance in Asia-Pacific.
Ms Lim has experience in completing retained assignments, representing Fortune 500 Corporations across sectors in the Asia region. She is a UK and HK qualified lawyer, and before entering the executive search industry, she practiced at Simmons & Simmons and Denton Wilde Sapte in Hong Kong and worked as regional counsel at Cushman & Wakefield Asia.
“Pedersen & Partners’ business growth and development has been impressive, especially in Asia. As a leading international financial center and a major business hub in the region, I’m enthusiastic about joining their global team in Hong Kong. I am fully committed to forging strong links between the firm’s services, clients and the Asian market, which has a high demand for premium executive search services,” said Ms Lim. “I look forward to contributing to the growth and reputation of the firm.”
“Like most of our customers, we believe that Hong Kong will be one of the cornerstones for our growth, and we are proud to have Caroline joining our team. After more than 20 years of working in the region, she has built an extensive network of senior executives and unrivaled experience within the legal, compliance and regulatory sector in Asia, which will be a strong asset for our clients’ development strategies in the region,” said Gautier Vasseur. “Caroline is a great fit for our values of trust, professionalism, relationship – and she is definitely the right person to raise the profile of Pedersen & Partners in Hong Kong”.
