Space Executive announces transition of partner Agnes Yee to managing director, Singapore.
Yee takes the lead.
Internationally renowned recruitment agency Space Executive is pleased to announce the transition of its partner Agnes Yee to the role of managing director. Yee’s transition to the position of managing director creates a landmark chapter in the South-East Asian recruitment industry as she is one of the few female managing directors in the region for a global recruitment consultancy.
Current Singapore managing director, Marek Danyluk and partner Ben Horn will be transitioning out of the Singapore office to continue the company’s international expansion with the opening of Space Executive’s London office in April 2020.
“We are very pleased to announce the transition of our prodigious partner Agnes Yee to the prestigious designation of managing director,” said Marek Danyluk Space Executive Global CEO. “Yee has been an incredible partner for our company since joining with her team in 2017 and we are proud to have her here with us.
“This promotion marks the recognition of her great contribution to the organisation,” Marek added. “Agnes is the most deserving candidate for the role, and we are waiting to see her manage her new role with the same spirit and vigour that she has shown in her present role.”
An alumnus of the National University of Singapore, Agnes Yee holds more than a decade of experience within the executive search industry, specialising in legal and compliance positions spanning across diverse industries. Often dubbed as the “go-to” legal search specialist across Singapore and Asia Pacific, prior to Space Executive, Agnes was a highly successful entrepreneur of a top boutique specialist search firm. She joined Space Executive through a strategic merger in 2017. As part of the merger, the executive search specialist also brought in her team from her own company to Space Executive to manage corporate governance practice and expansion of the firm across the region.
Agnes has also previously handled the responsibilities of leading the legal practice for an international Search & Selection firm and has donned the role of General Manager of a renowned legal recruitment company as well. An excellent industry professional, Agnes is widely regarded for her strong mentoring prowess, indomitable spirit, relentless focus on the pursuit of the best and exceptional customer care.
“It’s a great honor for me to be promoted to the senior position of managing director for Space Executive,” she said. “I wish to thank my team and the other Space Executive partners for believing in me and considering me for this esteemed position. I am excited to give my all in ensuring future success as the managing director of Space Executive and taking the company to new heights.”
