Argyll Scott Dubai appoints MD
From his Dubai base, Cole will drive the growth of the business across the UAE, wider Middle East and Africa regions.
Cole joins Argyll Scott from PageGroup, where his most recent role was director of sales and marketing, retail, HR and secretarial for the Middle East region. Prior to this, Cole carved out a highly successful recruitment career in the UK where he was operational director, managing multiple teams across multiple sectors. While his division’s sales record was one of the highest in the business, he was also a top biller in his own right, managing senior level mandates.
In his new role as managing director of the Dubai office, Cole will further build Argyll Scott’s brand presence across the region with his particular focus being on senior level mandates within the consumer and retail industries.
The Dubai office was established in 2013, sourcing the very best talent for management positions across key business functions and sectors in Dubai and across the GCC.
Argyll Scott Dubai works closely with its sister company, Redgrave Partners, an executive search firm. In Dubai, Redgrave focuses on senior mandates across the commerce and industry sectors, complimenting Argyll Scott’s service offering in this territory.
Adam Cole, managing director, Argyll Scott Dubai commented, “I am very excited to be joining Argyll Scott in Dubai. I know the Dubai recruitment market well and I am looking forward to the challenge of continuing to strengthen Argyll Scott’s brand presence across the Middle East and Africa. Working closely with my Redgrave colleagues in Dubai will mean that our clients have a go to recruiter for both board level mandates as well as middle management positions, with a search based approach regardless of whether a mandate is contingent or retained.”
John Hunter, CEO, Argyll Scott, said, “It is great news to have Adam on board. He has a strong track record in building recruitment teams across multiple sectors as well as good knowledge of the Middle East market. We are looking forward to him leading the Dubai office to become one of the top recruiters in the region for middle to senior management positions by delivering first class recruitment results for our clients, candidates and our own recruitment professionals.”
