March 18, 2021 – Even in the face of a global pandemic, executive search consultants are seeing an increase in hiring mandates from around the world. To meet demand, they continue to develop new practices, hire new recruiters and open new locations. Global recruiting consortiums, meanwhile, are taking advantage of a resurgence in certain geographic areas. Global recruiting consortium The Taplow Group has expanded with the addition of China Dox as its newest member firm. The firm will now be known as Taplow China and will offer executive search, human capital, and board advisory services in China and internationally.
Mark Firth, chairman of The Taplow Group, said: “Having conducted an extensive search for a partner firm in China, we are delighted Derek Zhang and his team have joined The Taplow Group, with an exceptional, experienced team and offices located in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Qingdao, Xi’an, Taplow China offer in-depth coverage across China that our clients require.” The Taplow China team will offer clients a suite of services, including executive search, human capital and board advisory that augment the firm’s longstanding partner firm in China, Taplow Longitude Management, which focuses on delivering bespoke leadership training and consulting services.
“Joining in Taplow Group is one great milestone for the global exposure and diversity of China DOX’s business strategy,” said Mike Lee and Derek Zhang, co-founder partners of China Dox (Taplow China). “With more foreign companies entering into China market and more China’s companies going oversea, we believe Taplow China’s local insight with international perspective and practice could provide more efficient and high quality, tailor made services with our clients all over the world.”
China Dox was established in 2005. Mr. Lee has more than 15 years of national sales management experience with multinational medical and pharmaceutical companies. Mr. Zang has more than 10 years of recruitment experience.
“Enhancing our offering in Asia-Pac is a critical focus for Taplow Group,” said Graeme Sandri, Asia Pac regional director of The Taplow Group S.A. “The addition of Derek and the Taplow China team to the Taplow Group provides us with even greater fire power to undertake global search.”
China has the world’s second-largest economy in terms of nominal GDP. It is also a global hub for manufacturing, being both the largest manufacturing economy and largest exporter of goods in the world. China is the fastest growing consumer market and second largest importer of goods anywhere.
