The Go-to person for start up executive search! Engaged Joanna for Viet team leadership search for Ninjavan. Detailed, structured and excellent on the follow up. Understood our requirements well and provided quality candidates for an extremely tough market like VN. Appreciate the fact that she understands very well how start up functions and adapts her working style to suit our needs and schedule. She’s a pleasure to work with!

Elena was very patient and thorough throughout the entire process. She became an ally in the market and made me feel like I truly had someone fighting for me. She opened doors for me that I didn’t realize even existed.

I am thankful to Pamela for recommending an exciting role to me and being sincere, supportive, and professional during the whole recruitment process. I was impressed by her deep understanding of the employer’s needs and her questioning techniques in uncovering the candidate’s attributes. The guidance that she and her team provided in pre-interview preparations was definitely helpful for matching the right people with the right company.

Elena has been a caring, patient and hard working recruiter not just pre but also post recruitment. She & her team helped us recruit our Head of Marketing in Hong Kong with not just the right skills and experience but more importantly, the right attitude and spirit which we were looking for. We wanted someone bright, results driven and entrepreneurial while being a team player with the right cultural fit. Elena has a special interest in startups and helping them scale. I would highly recommend her to startups, SMEs or MNCS looking for a partner to work with to find their right candidate.
