“I am enthusiastic about joining Pedersen & Partners, as it is one of the fastest growing Executive Search firms with proven results in the global Emerging Markets. I am looking forward to the challenge of developing the brand across South-East Asia and bringing the firm’s service and search execution standards to the local markets. Pedersen & Partners work globally as a single team and this will be a strong benefit for cross-border searches moving into Asia or out into the rest of the world,” commented Gary Williams.
