February 13, 2012 – Executive search firm Global Sage has formed an alliance with Chinese search firm Bó Lè Associates. The combined firms create a presence in 24 cities across the Asia-Pacific region with more than 550 employees. Global Sage and Bó Lè Associates, which are both headquartered in Hong Kong, will continue to operate as independent firms. “This alliance provides our clients with unparalleled access to Asia, the dynamo of the global economy,” said Global Sage CEO John Wright. “At the same time it creates an unprecedented opportunity for our Asian clients looking to expand either into traditional markets such as Europe and North America or the fast emerging economies of the Middle East, Africa and South America.” With offices across the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific, Global Sage focuses on senior-level search assignments for the financial services industry.
