17 Mar MitchelLake welcomes Quang Pham as Senior Associate USA
Based in Los Angeles, Quang will be responsible for helping the U.S. team to drive search execution and business growth over the next 12 months and beyond. The U.S. Executive Search division has been one of the fastest-growing parts of the business and MitchelLake is excited about further expansion in one of the key global technology innovation hubs today, dubbed popularly as “Silicon Beach.”
A graduate of the University of California Irvine, Quang began his talent acquisition career at a boutique executive search firm Boyle Ogata Bregman, specialising in the recruitment of technology and engineering professionals in the aerospace, defense, and industrial automation sectors. At the firm, Quang oversaw the company’s sourcing, operational excellence, and IT deployment functions. And besides consistently delivering on the company’s most difficult and hard-to-fill mandates as the lead researcher, Quang continuously increased the firm’s efficiency and profitability through the implementation of process improvements and the roll-out of advanced sourcing and recruiting tools and technologies.
Prior to his career in executive search, Quang had been an active local community organiser and passionate about working with underserved and underrepresented groups and communities. The differences in social and economic class, race, and gender contribute to an undeniable achievement gap in the U.S. education system.
Quang spent his time volunteering and working directly with these communities through non-profit organisations such as AmeriCorps and the Boys and Girls Club. He then went on to develop an education centre that provides academic services, including career counselling and tutoring, and then eventually running his own startup in the education services space.
Commenting on his decision to join MitchelLake: “MitchelLake works tirelessly together, across offices, specialisms, and geographies, united in the belief of the transformational power of excellent talent. It was the apparent choice, as I am thrilled to be joining a group of such passionate, progressive, diverse, and experienced providers of global talent.”
Please reach out to Quang, and give him a warm welcome!
