The multi-disciplinary recruitment agency Space Executive opened its next Asia office in Hong Kong during a period of rapid growth and international expansion. Headquartered in Singapore, the company will focus on growing its presence across investment banking, capital markets, private equity and funds in Hong Kong, replicating a similar business model to the one that catapulted Singapore.
The team will be led by managing director and board member Nick Lambe, a seasoned recruiter with over 18 years’ experience, 12 of those in Hong Kong. Nick has worked across a number of leading multinational and boutique recruitment firms. At Morgan McKinley, Nick was the youngest consultant ever to be promoted to managing director in 2010 and in the same year was amongst their top five billers globally. Nick will be responsible for growing the Hong Kong business, which aims to expand to 20 consultants by 2019, with another office opening in Tokyo by 2020.
According to managing partner Marek Danyluk: “The decision to open in Hong Kong is a strategic step in our overall international business growth strategy. This will give many of our current multinational clients an opportunity to leverage our industry-leading recruitment specialists across another key Asia market. We believe that remaining true to our focus on boutique client servicing using the most experienced and highest performing consultants will catapult our business internationally. We are thrilled to have Nick lead and grow our service offering in Hong Kong, and I look forward to working with our clients and candidates over the coming years.”
Nick Lambe added: “I am very excited to be joining a business with such clear success and appetite for expansion, which is committed to not only attracting the best consultants, but retaining them for the long-term. Testament to its success so far, I firmly believe that our business model is built for success and meets the needs of the Hong Kong market. As we grow from strength to strength, more clients and candidates will continue to enjoy highly specialised servicing from our carefully selected recruiters, who are some of the best in the industry.”
