Client Success Story: Senior Asset Manager Recruitment in Asia Pacific

First Contact, a specialist leader in recruitment services, recently played a pivotal role in addressing a critical executive vacancy for a global hotel asset organisation in Singapore. Our strategic approach to recruitment not only successfully filled the position but also showcased an innovative strategy that minimised costs, prioritised operational continuity, ensured confidentiality, and emphasised diversity in leadership. 

In this introduction, we will delve into the key components of our approach, highlighting how we seamlessly integrate efficiency, confidentiality, and diversity into our recruitment strategies to meet the unique needs of our clients.

Cost Efficiency and Operational Continuity: Recognising substantial costs tied to executive turnover, First Contact implemented a custom search strategy, avoiding unnecessary expenses and ensuring a seamless leadership transition. This prioritisation of cost efficiency not only found a suitable candidate but also minimised disruption in day-to-day operations.

Diversity/ESG Driven Leadership: First Contact's search process eliminated bias and promoted diversity, aligning with the evolving corporate landscape. The selected candidate brought varied international perspectives, contributing to business values, ESG, and fostering innovation across the Asia Pacific region. This emphasis on diversity met strategic goals and enhanced the work environment.

Access to Passive Candidates: Our access to a pool of passive candidates identified and attracted CRE executives not actively seeking new opportunities. This community-based approach ensured the recruitment of top talent, elevating leadership quality and contributing to success in the Asia-Pacific market.

This discreet approach preserved the company's image, enabling seamless navigation of changes and maintaining control over communication.
