Striving to deliver quality, expertise and specialism, he will ensure that the teams in India and Singapore continue to grow their established client base and expand their network of candidates.

“For more than 20 years, we have concentrated heavily on the development of local teams and management within Asia. We feel proud that approximately 90 per cent of our existing senior management in the region has been developed in this manner,” says Thompson.
“We will continue to adopt this approach that has proved very successful, and support it with the talent and experience of elite leaders, such as Hampartzoumian, who brings with him a proven track record of success in Europe and India. He embraces all of our core values and will be a substantial addition to our Singapore business while continuing to guide the further growth of our business in India,” Thompson adds.
