SSQ increases its team in Asia to nine consultants
Shilton Sharpe Quarry (‘SSQ’), the leading international legal search consultancy, is pleased to announce that it has strengthened its presence in Asia with the appointment of two new consultants, increasing the number of consultants to nine across offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore.
SSQ has been joined in Singapore by Tessa Arquilliere. Tessa studied law and political science at the Autonoma University of Madrid. She then practised as a real estate lawyer at Magic Circle law firm Clifford Chance prior to starting her recruitment career at another international recruitment consultancy in Singapore. Tessa joins SSQ with a number of years’ recruitment experience and will be responsible for continuing to grow SSQ’s private practice and in-house business in Singapore.
In Hong Kong, SSQ has hired Michael Campion, bringing the team in the city to four consultants. Michael studied at Durham University and received his masters from Edinburgh University before a career in investment banking and finance as well as professional sport.
These new hires bring the total number of SSQ staff in Asia to 13. This expansion once again evidences SSQ’s commitment to the region and the confidence it has in the Asian market.
Following the new appointments, SSQ’s Chief Executive, Nick Shilton said:
“With the Asia market being so important, it has been crucial for us to grow our team further in order to support our clients. We are very pleased to be adding Michael and Tessa to our team. They both have excellent knowledge of the region as well as wide networks which will help strengthen our presence at the same time as allowing our clients access to expertise to help them with their own recruitment strategies.”
