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.
The one thing I’ve come to realize having worked for Proco Commodities over the past 5 years is the real value that we offer our clients; not only through our niche product focus and subject matter expertise but also through our extensive global footprint.
