McGregor Boyall Asia Pacific celebrates 5th birthday

Singapore, 12th August 2016: Global recruitment specialist McGregor Boyall’s Asia Pacific Operations are excited to be celebrating 5 years of trading this week, with a series of events to mark the occasion.

Having executed a significant amount of business in the region from their London base, the opening of an office in Singapore in 2011 was the next natural step for McGregor Boyall to provide a platform for continued growth in the Asia Pacific region.

“The first 3 years were certainly interesting, with a few hairy moments!” comment Group CEO Laurie Boyall. “I want to thank Luke Archer for his strong work steering us through the initial start-up phase and establishing a strong platform to take the business forward.”

The reigns have now been handed over to Richard Lett, who has been running McGregor Boyall’s Middle East operations since 2012. Lett’s 20 years’ financial services recruitment experience in London and the Middle East (including 4 years running McGregor Boyall’s successful Dubai Team) means he is the ideal choice to take McGregor Boyall’s Asia Pacific offering on to the next stage of growth.

Commenting on the milestone, Lett said “McGregor Boyall Asia Pacific is now a well-established business with a mature presence in the market and a strong team who are all passionate specialists in their field. Over the last few months we have consolidated and refined our Practices to focus on five specialist areas: Technology, Change, Compliance, Legal and Private Banking & Wealth Management.”

“I am delighted that we have established a stable, and most importantly, profitable, business over the last five years” added Boyall. “Having consolidated and sharpened our focus, I am excited to see what the next five years brings as we look at further growth areas in the region.”
