Recruitment and consultancy company for the global events and exhibitions industry, tfconnect, has announced the opening of a regional office in Singapore to serve the Asian and wider region.
This comes after requests from clients for additional assistance in Asia and to support a number of recent high-level tfconnect placements in the region.
tfconnect Asia will be run by its managing partner, Andrew Lee, who has many years of international and business development experience in the events, exhibitions, venues and themed entertainment industries. Some of the companies Lee has worked at include 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. Lim 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 added: “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.”
