June 29, 2015 – Executive search firm GRMSearch (GRM) has added Sam Fallaw and Jelena Lazic as associates in its Melbourne office. The appointments come less than one year after GRM Search launched its Australian office with seasoned legal recruiter Paul Garth at the helm.
“The market response to our Australian office opening has been very encouraging. The addition of Sam and Jelena is in response to the growth we have seen, and the additional growth that is set to continue,” said Rob Green, chief executive officer of GRMSearch.
Australian director, Paul Garth, added: “There is tremendous opportunity in Australia for specialist recruiters who are willing to think creatively, put time and hard graft into an assignment or a candidate, and who offer a reach and knowledge that befits the word boutique. We genuinely want to raise the bar in recruitment, and I think our clients are seeing that. Both Sam and Jelena have the skills, experience and dedication to provide our clients and candidates with first class service and we are thrilled they are part of our team.”
Ms. Fallaw joins GRM from a boutique recruitment agency and has worked primarily with privately owned companies, liaising directly with managing directors and other key decision makers. She formerly served as a recruitment consultant with Quest Personnel.
Ms. Lazic’s experience lies in in-house recruitment, having previously worked as an in-house recruitment coordinator at value fashion brand Cotton On Group. With a background in recruiting both management level roles and ensuring adequate staffing levels within a major global retail company, she excels at sourcing hard to find candidates and candidate care.
GRMSearch is a global executive search firm specializing in legal, compliance, insurance, banking and asset management. It is headquartered in Hong Kong with teams in Johannesburg, Melbourne, Tokyo and Myanmar.
