Hudson Names New UK/Ireland/Middle East Leader
Catherine King Brings Industry/Speciality Business/Local Market Depth and Track Record
Hudson has introduced Catherine King, former Adecco Group and Kelly Services senior operating executive, as its new UK/Ireland/Middle East (Dubai) CEO and a member of the companys global senior leadership team. Reporting directly to Hudson Highland Group Chairman and CEO Jon Chait, King will be responsible for the management and profitable growth of Hudsons UK, Ireland and Dubai operations.
Most recently, King served as the chief executive officer of Adeccos $2 billion UK and Ireland business, comprised of six core recruitment brands serving the commercial and professional markets. Previously, she led Kelly Services UK/Ireland division, and prior to that, ran Kellys U.S. and Canadian operations, respectively. During her career, King has sold, serviced and led professional speciality businesses in Finance and Accounting, Legal, IT, Engineering, Scientific, Creative and Education disciplines, among them Jonathan Wren, Ajilon Consulting, Roevin Engineering & Scientific, and Computer People.
Catherine brings a stellar industry reputation, proven performance with two other major global players, and nearly 20 years of successful operational leadership to this role, said Chait. She is joining to strategically lead a well-established, successful team. Her efforts at Adecco and Kelly centred on building higher-margin, speciality business lines in Finance, IT and other professional disciplines, core to Hudsons strategy and focus.
I am very excited about this opportunity, King said. Hudson is well positioned and a growing competitive force in the market. I believe my local market experience and insights gathered while with these other major players will help accelerate our mission to lead in the war for specialised, professional-level talent and seize more market share.
King, a U.S. citizen who has lived and worked in England over the past five years, completed Executive Education courses at Harvard Business School and is active with several leading recruitment industry associations.
