International exhibitions industry recruitment company tfconnect is to open a regional office in Singapore, designed to serve the Asian and wider region.
tfconnect Asia will be run by its Managing Partner, Andrew Lee, who has many years’ experience in the events industry, having worked at companies including Reed Exhibitions, AsiaWorld Expo, Pico Group, International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions, and Six Flags Entertainment.
Joining the Asia team immediately as Senior Consultant, Global Executive Search, is May Lim. May also has many years of regional experience working for Reed Exhibitions and British American Tobacco/Rothmans.
tfconnect has been working in Asia for several years, and last year made a number of senior level placements in the region including CEOs for Tarsus Group and Comexposium.
tfconnect’s Group Managing Director, Trevor Foley, said: “We will be able to support our clients on a wider range of roles with people on the ground in Asia. However, taking this step has always been about finding the right partner to work with and Andrew Lee is that person. We’re looking forward to helping friends and colleagues in the region.”
Lee commented: “I am very excited to lead the charge of tfconnect in Asia. I have known the company and Trevor since its founding 10 years ago, and I have always been impressed by the professionalism displayed by the tfconnect team. Now we can extend a more personalised service to our partners here in the region with the opening of tfconnect Asia in Singapore.”
