January 25th, 2016 – Bangkok, Thailand – Pedersen & Partners, a leading international Executive Search firm with 56 wholly owned offices in 52 countries, is pleased to announce that James Prideaux has joined its Asia Pacific team as a Regional Client Partner.

Mr. Prideaux is a world-traveled professional with over 30 years of international executive management experience in the Consumer Products and the Energy segment. He has extensive experience in successfully establishing and developing world-class businesses from the ground up in financial and operating management at the C-level for multinationals in both developed and emerging markets. He has spent the past 15 years based in South-East Asia with responsibility for Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Before starting his career in Executive Search, Mr. Prideaux worked at global businesses such as KPMG, Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO), and Dole Food Company.  

“Throughout my career, I have successfully guided organisations to navigate through complex and challenging situations, ensuring efficient resource allocation for continued growth,” said Mr. Prideaux. “I look forward to continuing this mission in my new role with Pedersen & Partners, connecting businesses across Asia with our  global experts in order to secure the best solutions for their challenges.”

“The fact that the Asian economic growth forecasts are moderate and a slowdown is imminent only encourages the business strategists to continually amp up their talent acquisition efforts in this region that will continue to be an essential contributor to global growth. It is thus of paramount importance for us as a firm to have a highly reactive team, capable of facing the talent challenges encountered by our clients in this landscape. James has an impressive background and familiarity with the business community of the region, which makes him a perfect fit for our operations in Asia Pacific, as we strive to consolidate our position and encompass a greater geographical area in order to better support our clients,” stated Gary Williams, Managing Director for South-East Asia at Pedersen & Partners.
