Our clients say
Alex Lee contacted me about my current role at Tellurian Inc. I was impressed with his ability to match his client's needs with my capabilities, and adequately prepare the parties for the initial discussion. Alex was persistent but respectful in his follow up, and provided accurate feedback on the process and next steps through to the offer. He handled some difficult negotiations astutely, managing expectations on both sides. Overall I was very impressed with Alex's professionalism and empathy in managing a complex hiring.
Historically, liquified natural gas (LNG) has not been traded as a commodity in the same way as oil, gas and metals, with the market dominated instead by capital-intensive LNG producers looking to sell supplies on a long-term basis.
In the past decade, Singapore has emerged as a critical commodity trading hub for Asia, sitting at the heart of a region whose dynamic economies continue to lead global growth. According to the IMF’s most recent regional assessment, the Asia and Pacific region is expected to see growth of 5.5% in 2017, compared to 5.3% in 2016.
I have been working within executive search for the past 15 years across Asia Pacific and the Americas region; with a specific focus on the commodity markets over the past 5 years. One of the biggest trends I have seen evolve in the North American market, is companies wanting to partner with subject matter experts when they are looking to hire, rather than engage non-industry specific search firms.
