Pedersen & Partners Strengthens Its Presence in Greater China with the Addition of Shirley Wong as Principal
Pedersen & Partners, an international Executive Search firm with 56 wholly owned offices in 52 countries, is pleased to announce that Shirley Wong has joined its Hong Kong team as Principal.
Ms. Wong has international experience recruiting senior level executives in the high-end Retail and Consumer Products industries across APAC and the U.S. Over the course of her career, Ms. Wong has accumulated cross-sector experience while holding leadership roles ranging from Regional HR director to general manager HR for global players such as John Hardy, Duty Free America, DFS Group Limited, and Hong Kong Resort International. Ms. Wong was in charge of developing and establishing local, regional and global HR departments and leading and implementing all aspects of HR strategy, including talent management, learning and development, talent acquisition, compensation, employee engagement, and change management.
“Hong Kong has traditionally required a complex and tailored approach to recruitment, and last decade’s economic rollercoaster in the region has made the market even more challenging. Providing innovative, but balanced solutions for our clients’ growth and development aspirations – this is the major endeavour I look forward to upon joining the Pedersen & Partners worldwide team. I’m fully confident that together with my colleagues who succeeded in building a strong presence in one of the highest-ranked Asian cities, we will be uniquely positioned to provide a wider reach to the global talent pool for our clients,” stated Shirley Wong, Principal at Pedersen & Partners.
“Shirley’s broad network across Asia and the U.S. and extensive talent development skills will definitely play an integral role in our business expansion across the region. Her outstanding expertise aligns with our commitment to consistently deliver the highest return on our clients’ talent investment, and she will be a strong addition to our Hong Kong team,” added Garry Williams, Partner and the Head of APAC at Pedersen & Partners.
