Executive Search in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Pedersen & Partners established its Kuala Lumpur office in 2018 – a further testament to our strategy of expanding our on-the-ground presence across the world, and providing our clients with no less than the very best executive talent.

As the fourth-largest economy in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is increasingly focusing on advanced technology and R&D in a variety of industry and service sectors, and there is therefore a strong demand for skilled talent and the necessary expertise in attracting it. Malaysia’s booming economy, stable and clear rules of business conduct, investment incentives and connectivity to Southeast Asia attract many large corporations and foreign businesses, while also fostering the emergence of local players. The result is intense competition for leaders and executives who will successfully drive growth. 

Our Kuala Lumpur team possesses decades of experience in the Malaysian and Southeast Asian markets, and we work alongside our clients to not only identify and recruit executive talent but take on the role of a trusted strategic advisor. Our clients particularly appreciate the combination of local knowledge with the resources of a global Executive Search firm. Pedersen & Partners can boast a strong specialisation in Board Services, Financial Services, Industrial, Life Sciences, Retail, Technology and other practice groups, which gives us the winning edge in accessing top talent.
