James joined Proco Global’s Singapore office in November 2016 to help strengthen the Industrial Equipment and Technology practices for Asia Pacific.

James has over 10 years’ experience in client engagement, business development and building / managing successful teams to be customer facing and profitable.

5 years of this has been focusing on delivering retained recruitment assignments from middle management up to C-level executives within the industrial sector in SEA.

James proven track record for identifying and assessing senior candidates within end to end supply chain functions is unparalleled, together with his meticulous search processes allowing him to find the best willing and able candidates that add real value and ultimately become long term assets to his client’s organisations.

James’ deep functional knowledge within Supply Chain, Procurement, Quality and Operational Excellence allows him to build long term partnerships with his clients and candidates.

James currently has a 97% success rate on all retained searches since 2012 with candidates staying in their jobs for 12 months or longer.

James approached me for the Managing Directors position at KSB pumps in 2014 and at the time I remember being impressed by his detailed interview process, knowledge on the company and his client’s requirements and expectations. His ability to gently coast me into the position was exceptional.  I have used and been recruited by several global executive search firms over the years and without any doubt James consults at a high level to the point that we will meet every quarter for a catch up consultation on my life at KSB. We have engaged James on a few critical assignments locally and regionally and have always been pleased with the results in candidate and his commitment to time lines. James is certainly worth meeting with for solid career advice or looking to recruit a quality management team in Asia Pacific.
