SSQ staff hires help boost global expansion
In fewer than six months, SSQ has hired nine new consultants in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and across Asia.
This expansion also includes the launch of a new office in Singapore.
These new hires supplement SSQ’s private practice and in-house legal recruitment teams, and also see the launch of a new service, with the hire of a dedicated compliance recruitment consultant in the UK.
This expansion underscores one of the founding principles of SSQ, namely always to expand in such a way as to serve clients better, along both geographical and service lines. The increased strength of the international team as a whole will also help to build upon the already strong presence that the business has in each of its regions.
SSQ’s new consultants are:
Edwin Cawthron: London, UK, private practice, interim/contracts (SSQ Interim Solutions)
Kathryn Earle: London, UK, in-house, permanent
Nicola Gebhardt: Düsseldorf, Germany, private practice, permanent
Ambre Le Feur: Paris, France, private practice, permanent
Peter Mayr: Munich, Germany, in-house, permanent
Cristiano Pettinelli: Milan/Rome, Italy & London, UK, private practice and in-house, permanent
Nick Robertson: Singapore, private practice and in-house, permanent
Pedro Valle: Madrid, Spain, private practice and in-house, permanent
Ed Wacher: London, UK, in-house/compliance, permanent
SSQ’s chief Executive, Nick Shilton, commented, “This is a very exciting time for SSQ and I am very pleased with how quickly we have been able to grow our team in 2014 with high quality consultants. Each of our new hires brings their own unique knowledge and experience which will be invaluable to the business as a whole. By strengthening our teams on the ground in each of our jurisdictions we are able to offer our law firm, corporate and financial institutional clients an even better service.”
