APAC Financial Director - global FMCG

​A global FMCG company was looking for a Regional FD to look after the APAC region.

Our client was looking to hire a new Regional FD to be based in Bangkok. They previously engaged 6 other recruitment agencies on top of their own
internal search for a total of 8 months, but had yet to identify the right person for the role.

Argyll Scott was engaged to source for suitable candidates to fill this vacancy.

The challenge:

  • The role was previously engaged by six other agencies for eight months, a lot of qualified candidates were already approached

  • The was a limited budget for the role

  • Due to this being a regional position, the level of experience required was high

Our approach:

  • Combed the market through mapping

  • Proactively approached passive candidates and sought referrals from extensive network of CFOs and FDs

The outcome:

Offers Accepted: APAC FD

Timespan: Six weeks
