IMD International Search Group Adds Partner in Singapore

IMD International Search Group develops presence in the Asia Pacific region with a new partner office in Singapore.

IMD is delighted to announce the membership of I Search Worldwide following our recent annual general meeting in Paris.

Singapore sits at the crossroad of the world’s largest and fastest growing region straddling China, India & the ASEAN countries. A modern cosmopolitan city with a strong reputation as a major player in the global economic map, Singapore is a regional hub to large US & European MNCs as well as headquarters to numerous growing enterprises in the technology, financial services & healthcare sectors. Welcoming a new partner in the city state is therefore of major importance to IMD.

Richard Hoon is an expert in this rapidly growing market where he founded I Search Worldwide in 2002 after having been in the search business for almost 25 years. Prior to becoming a search consultant, Richard was a senior corporate executive managing commercially operating businesses. A Mechanical Engineer by training with an MBA degree, Richard has a diversified corporate experience ranging from the oil & gas, electronics, pharmaceuticals, tourism, financial services and the healthcare services sectors.

Today, the I Search Worldwide team operate mainly in the following industry practices: Consumer, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Engineering and Business Services sectors.

“I am pleased to be able to add to the expertise and growing presence of our IMD family. From our office in Singapore, we intend to help our Asian client companies identify top performing talents to help grow their organizations globally but also to help IMD clients who wishes to establish and expand their foothold in the Asia Pacific region” says Mr. Hoon.

"Richard made a big impression on all of us during his first IMD meeting in Paris", comments Dr. Matthias Mohr, IMD President and Managing Partner of Dr. Heimeier & Partner. "He immediately found his place in our organization and we all trust his membership will be successful."
