My Background
I am an experienced recruitment professional with a successful track record of launching and taking recruitment practices to profitability. Having worked in Hong Kong, Delhi, Mumbai, and Singapore, I have extensive experience across Asia while managing key regional accounts and leading internal teams. I enjoy broadening my area of expertise by continuing to help organizations overcome their talent identification challenges. Prior to recruitment, I worked with Ernst & Young and hold an Honours degree in Commerce from Delhi University.

Roles I Recruit For
I specialise in recruiting and advising HR professionals and  C-level executives around South East Asia. This includes advising senior executives on regional hiring strategies and provide clients in ASEAN with tailor-made recruitment processes to ensure successful hiring in the region.
