TRANSEARCH was engaged to conduct an executive search by one of the big four banks in Australia to establish their Asian business banking practice.
The bank had attempted to fill this position on several occasions unsuccessfully, so chose to partner with TRANSEARCH due to their broad global reach.
With an agreed brief to focus on the Asia Pacific region, an extensive search was undertaken with the successful candidate being identified in Singapore. The individual had successfully grown the business and commercial banking division of a competing bank, was a native speaker of Mandarin and Cantonese, educated in the USA, had lived in Sydney and was looking to return to Australia.
This combination of skills knowledge, experience and education is extremely rare yet the combined expertise and tenacity of TRANSEARCH’s consulting and research team concluded this successful appointment and to the credit of the placed individual continues to grow their portfolio and prosper within the organisation.
