03 Dec NEWS // MitchelLake Singapore Announces First Hire
In May we announced our APAC expansion with Luke Partridge at the helm, and to round out a great year we’re excited to introduce SooJung Bhang, our first internal hire for the region.
Soo lives and breathes the market having lived in Singapore for 18 years, via the United States, Indonesia and originally Korea.
She has worked in TMT industry in an APAC Business Development role and worked closely across digital projects for telcos, ICTs and media / broadcasting companies. Thanks to her strong industry background in senior sales roles Soo will be instrumental across search assignments and BD growth.
Soo joins MitchelLake after working in the corporate world for almost 20 years and looking for something else to sustain her passion. Upon meeting with Jon Tanner and Luke, she saw a match with MitchelLake’s philosophy, conviction and belief, and we can’t wait for a great 2015 with her.
Luke offers “We are delighted that SooJung has joined our business as we continue our growth plan in the region. She comes from a strong commercial sales background acquired across SEA and coupled with her recruitment experience has proven an invaluable team member over a short period of time. 2015 looks like a very encouraging year in terms of building our brand presence, team size and leveraging MItchelLake’s strength of international office collaboration. In doing so we can continue to provide both clients and candidates with a deep and localised perspective on this high growth and exciting part of the world.”
Soo is currently learning Mandarin and hopes to reach HSK level 3 next year. Outside of work she’s an avid traveler & hiker who enjoys reading, knitting and calligraphy.
