Executive search firm Berwick Partners has opened new offices in Singapore as well as Dallas as the company continues its strategic expansion plans. Already operating from key locations across the UK in Birmingham, London, Manchester, Leeds, and Glasgow, the company also has an international presence with offices in Amsterdam and Dubai.
Richard Love, the managing director of Berwick Partners says the Asia and US expansion: “We have a clear plan to further internationalise the business over the next three years, to provide greater coverage and value for our clients, candidates and our consultants,” he says.
“The Asia Pacific market is one we have long been targeting; it’s a key region and a foothold is vital for Berwick Partners to be a truly global business. Singapore is an ideal base for the new office in the AP region.
He adds: “A strong US presence is equally important to the firm’s plans, and the new Dallas office is a sign of both our intent and market opportunities across the US.”
Appointed to head the new Singapore and Asia Pacific operation is Tim Klimcke, who will drive building the team that will work with multi-national organisations across all industries and markets in the region. Meanwhile, Brian Watson will be partner and head of the Dallas office. He is the firm’s first partner-level hire in the US and will also lead the HR practice across North America.
“We are thrilled to have such highly respected and experienced recruiters to lead the two new offices and establish and grow the business in these locations,” comments Richard Love. “I am looking forward to working with Brian and Tim.
“The Singapore and Asia Pacific office brings particular opportunities,” he continues. “With Tim’s ambitions and vision for growth in the AP region, Berwick Partners can also explore the particular operations for project, volume solutions through our division Berwick Talent Solutions, a specialist in delivering project and volume recruitment, market mapping and talent pipelining, as greater numbers of Western clients expand across AP.”
