KK Consulting becomes new global partner and enhances strong Asia/Pacific service
London, England, January 23, 2012
Stanton Chase is pleased to announce the launch of a significant new office in Seoul, Korea. KK Consulting, one of Korea’s most successful and respected executive search service firms, has joined Stanton Chase International as its latest global partner.
The new Seoul office will deliver the distinctive Stanton Chase approach to client-centred executive search to the important and active Korean business community. Korea has a large and growing economy and is home to many high-profile and successful multinational firms in technology and other industries.
Stanton Chase Korea (Formerly KK Consulting) is headed by well-known and respected Korean business and executive search leader KK Kim and Managing Director Tony Kang. “This move is good for everyone”, says Kim. “Our office will be able to support the needs of Stanton Chase international clients using our knowledge of Korean leadership talent. At the same time our Korean clients will also have more access to talent from around the world through our Stanton Chase global partners,” he said.
The office is already one of Seoul’s leading executive search services. It has been providing quality counsel and service for more than 20 years to many of Korea’s most significant corporations and organisations. With a highly professional and proven staff of 15, the office has delivered more than 1600 searches with particular success at the CEO and executive level.
“We are thrilled that KK Consulting is joining the Stanton Chase partnership”, says George Cross, Stanton Chase International Chairman. “Our global ownership partners review new applications for partnership carefully. We found that the alignment of KK’s professional approach and service quality with ours was remarkable. This is a great fit that will benefit many clients,” he said.
“The new Stanton Chase Korea office further enhances the service coverage we are able to offer clients in the Asia/Pacific Region” says Cross. With the opening of this office in Korea, and the Singapore office in 2011, Stanton Chase now has 16 offices helping clients in the region. Other offices are in Japan, China, India, Australia and New Zealand. This expansion brings Stanton Chase International global service coverage to 72 offices in 46 countries.
