DHR raises Asia growth outlook

Nov 21, 2013 | The Korea Herald

Global search firm DHR International on Thursday predicted 20 percent revenue growth in its Asian operations next year, doubling its original target of 10 percent.

The search firm opened its 12th Asia-Pacific and first Korean office in Seoul in August to strengthen its foothold in the region.

The company plans to set up three to five more offices globally by next year, most likely in China, India, South Africa and Turkey, DHR president Christine Greybe said at a press conference in Seoul.

She added that there has been rising demand for C-level global talent with experience in advanced economies despite the sluggish global economy, especially those specialized in finance and human resources.
