I began my recruitment career in the UK back in 2005, partnering with multinationals to attract the best finance & accounting talent into their business. After 7 years in London, I relocated to Asia and spent 5 years in Singapore, focused on mid to senior-level finance search across the SEA region, before relocating to Kuala Lumpur to lead Ambition's Shared Services and Commerce & Industry divisions in Malaysia.
Roles I Recruit For
In addition to co-running the Malaysia office, I recruit senior leadership positions within Commerce & Industry, predominantly GM/MD level searches.
My teams specialise in recruiting Finance & Accounting, Supply Chain & Procurement, Human Resources, Sales & Marketing, and Engineering positions within Commerce & Industry and Shared Services/Global Business Services in Malaysia.
Outside of Ambition
Like many, I love to travel and explore new places, cultures, history, and architecture. I have been fortunate in being able to visit some incredible countries around the world. I am an unashamed bookworm and am always reading something new – anything from the classics of literature to autobiographies and historical fiction. I also enjoy cooking, entertaining, Formula One, and golf.
I had a great experience working with Matthew earlier this year. He is receptive and approachable and works to ensure a win-win situation for the hiring company and the candidate. He is able to think beyond the silos of job descriptions and industries to find a true fit in terms of culture, skill sets, and interests. I highly appreciated his pro-activeness, dedication, candor, sound advice, and thorough professionalism. He brings a level of personal attention and focus that sets him apart from many others in the recruiting industry.Testimonial
I have come to appreciate Matthew’s sound advice, personable demeanor and honest opinions on both roles as well as companies. He is professional and has a high level of integrity. With the increasingly competitive landscape within the industry which in my view tends to lead to short-termism and a tendency to treat both candidates and clients as a source of revenue, Matthew's ability to establish a very personal & human relationship is a differentiating factor and a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoy working with him and would recommend him strongly to any prospective candidates, recruiting managers and employers.Testimonial
