6 Mar 2019, Hong Kong – SRI, the international search and consulting firm, have appointed Tom Watterson to head up the company’s newly established Hong Kong office, as part of  its global expansion.

Tom joins SRI from MCG&Co, where he was a consultant for the last four years; based first in Dubai and then Hong Kong, with a remit also covering search projects in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Singapore, Mainland China and Australia.

As well as his extensive executive search experience, Tom spent a significant amount of time working at leading PR agencies in the UK and Middle East, including Grayling and Edelman, before transitioning into recruitment.

Helen Soulsby, Managing Partner, APAC said, “Tom will play a crucial role in expanding our business in the Asia Pacific region.”

“He has a unique combination of multi-market recruitment and agency experience as well as trusted relationships in the region.  He is a strong fit for SRI with his commitment to outstanding client service and collaboration.  We are thrilled to have him on board.”

The Hong Kong office will complement SRI’s existing APAC offices in Beijing, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney, as well as international offices in UK, USA, Switzerland and Germany.

Tom Watterson, Head of Hong Kong, added, “SRI sits right at the heart of the converging sports, entertainment and technology market place, making us best placed to partner with clients to navigate the challenges and opportunities of business today. I am looking forward to being part of the team.”
