WIL Group expands presence into Australia and Hong Kong

Watermark (Australia) and AP Transition Management (Hong Kong) join WIL Group (Worldwide Interim Leadership) as new members and enhance WIL Group’s positioning in the growing Asia Pacific region.

Watermark :

Watermark launched its interim management practice 6 years ago and since then has established itself as the market leader in Australia.

Martin Searle, Partner at WATERMARK, comments: « I can confidently say that today, there are no other practices with so many partners working solely in the interim executive space in Australia (Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne specifically). Being part of WIL Group helps to provide a real competitive edge. We have access to a wide and deep talent pool across Australia to now serve WIL Group’s multinational clients. »

AP Transition Management :

AP Transition Management (APTM, Hong Kong) for their part joins the organization bringing a prime understanding of the Greater China market.

Alan Paul, founding Partner of APTM says: « Along with my co-managing Partner, Olivier Maitre, we have been serving clients in Hong Kong and China in various executive search, consulting and corporate capacities for over 16 years. This experience gives us access to an extensive network of business leaders in the region as well as a very large pool of professional managers with expertise in many sectors and functions. We are combining forces with WIL Group’s resources in Mainland China and offering clients exclusive transition management services in the area. »

Patrick Laredo, Chairman of WIL Group declares: “We are happy to welcome WATERMARK and AP TRANSITION MANAGEMENT whose capacities are valuable to our clients worldwide. With them we consolidate our presence in Australia, South East Asia, China, India and the Middle East; as we believe in the growth of this part of the world for the years to come.
