London Recruiter Launches Singapore Office

Date: 31 December 2012

Selby Jennings, the London-based recruitment firm with a wealth and private banking business, is launching a Singapore office in response to soaring business in the fast-growth region.

Selby Jennings currently does around a third of its business in the main financial centres of Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Tokyo, and increasingly in Shanghai, Beijing and Seoul. Business out of Asia has grown by 68 per cent over the last three years, said the firm.

James Brown will move over to head up the Singapore office as associate director and Asia Pacific head. He will be joined Kieran Behan and Steve Yendell from London as executive directors of the global business.

“We are not just here to make up the numbers in Singapore,” said James Brown, head of Asia Pacific at the recruiter.

Brown added that the firm is considering a move into other countries in the region in future. “As a gateway to the rest of Asia if we are half as successful as we believe we will be I would hope that China, Indonesia Australia and Malaysia are only a few years away.”
