About the speakers:

Martin (pictured, left) will answer your questions and his unique insight into the sector will be a great opportunity to learn and discuss with one of the very best operators in our business.   

He is presently chairman and major shareholder of Empresaria Group PLC, an International Staffing group listed on the London AIM Exchange and has been since 2004.

During this period, he also undertook contractual assignments as executive chairman of Corporate Services Group (now Impellam), Staff Service International based in Japan and he was until recently a director of TriNet Corporation, a Professional Employer Organisation based in San Leandro, California.

Beginning August 2000 and until his official retirement in February 2004, Martin served as chairman and CEO of the Board of Management of Vedior N.V., the world’s third largest staffing services group. Prior to assuming the role of chairman, Martin served as vice chairman and a board of management member since 1999.

In 1992, Martin became chairman and CEO of Select Appointments (Holdings) Limited, which became the largest International Specialist Staffing group and was listed on the London and NASDAQ Stock Exchanges until its acquisition by Vedior in 1999.

Prior to his appointment at Select, he was responsible for half the operations of Adia S.A, the world’s second largest Staffing Services group at that time and now part of Adecco. Before joining Adia, he resided in the United States for a period of 20 years and served as president and chief operating officer of a state-wide financial services group based in California.

Martin is a former chairman of the Federation of Recruitment and Employment Services (FRES) now known as the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

Hogervorst (pictured left) is the director of agency solutions in Asia for CXC Global.

Originally from UK and now working and living in HK for just over six years with four being at CXC, Hogervorst has a good understanding of the Asian market when it comes to contracting and statutory requirements around employment. Hogervorst also has 15 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, both in house and agency, therefore she is able to understand the requirements when dealing with agencies wanting to grow their business in Asia. She is the key point and advisor of all agency solutions venturing into Asia and currently has seen a trend of UK and European agencies increasing their footprint there.

Hogervorst will be joined by Connor Healey, managing director for CXC Global EMEA, and Fernando Gutierrez, managing director for CXC Global LAM.
