Patrick Andres

Managing Director, Asia Pacific - Rainmaker Asia Pacific

We engaged the services of ACI to help us identify a candidate to grow our Asia-Pacific team. From the onset, ACI proved themselves to be very professional. They were very thorough in recognizing our specific needs, and made some relevant suggestions based on their deep understanding of the market. They then provided us with a comprehensive list of options from their pool of local talent. They were very efficient in organizing follow-up meetings, showing a great deal of flexibility, Throughout the process they were responsive and professional. They have followed up after the fact to make sure the fit was good for both the employer and the candidate. In the end they were key in helping us find an excellent candidate. We thank them of all their efforts, and hope to have the opportunity to work with them again soon.

We have been working with Thomas Lim and ACI for many years and we have always been impressed by his professionalism, good customer service and his ability to supply us with strong candidates for hard to fill roles.

Tanya Jarman

Senior Marketing Manager, International - South Australian Tourism Commission

We engaged Andrew Chan and the team at ACI HR to recruit a senior management role for us in Singapore. The brief was tight and the expectations were high. Andrew responded with a high calibre list of candidates, delivering on the skill set we needed. Andrew is a pleasure to work with; approachable, professional and accessible. This was essential given that we were recruiting from Australia.

Frederick Wong

TrustYou, MD & VP Asia Pacific

We have been using ACI as our preferred Executive Search firm for a number of years and have found them to be true professionals with a clear understanding of our company’s requirements, as well as an intimate knowledge of the industry as a whole. They have been instrumental in helping us build our Asia Pacific team and we would have no hesitation to recommend their services.

Herve Bellaiche

Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing, COMPAGNIE DU PONANT

I worked with ACI for the recruitment of the Manager in charge of our Shanghai Office. Because our company is based in Europe, it could have been difficult to work. In this case with ACI, it was very easy! The team was very responsive, very clear and we had regular feedbacks regarding this recruiting process. I was pleased to have ACI representing locally our interest. Overall, the process was very efficient and it went very fast (4 weeks in total). I strongly recommend ACI team to any potential recruiter.
