Cielo Increases Global Reach & Asia Pacific Footprint with Expansion into Singapore

Hong Kong – July 15, 2014 – Cielo (formerly Pinstripe & Ochre House), the world’s leading provider of global talent acquisition and management solutions, today announced its entrance into the Singapore market. The decision to expand the firm's Asia Pacific presence into Singapore comes as a direct result of the increasing client need for talent partners in the region.

“Asia Pacific continues to be a key player in the global business economy, creating tremendous growth opportunity for Cielo and our clients,” said Chris Herrmannsen, executive vice president, Emerging Markets & Strategic Initiatives at Cielo. “Building on our established footprint and success in the region, Cielo will continue to deliver world-class talent solutions through an agile model that can be quickly customized to meet changing business demands, specific to the Singapore market.”

Since 2011, Cielo has built a highly capable talent acquisition platform for its Asia Pacific clients with teams across Hong Kong and partner relationships in India, China, Japan and Australia. Ranging across industries – from aviation to medical devices – Cielo’s Asia Pacific capabilities span 14 different countries in the region, demonstrating significant expertise in hard-to-fill and niche roles.

Newly appointed Regional Account Director for Asia Pacific Taimur Shah added, “In a highly competitive talent market, a proactive and tailored approach to workforce management is critical. We work with clients to help them gain a distinct advantage by recruiting and retaining hard-to-find talent that enables them to achieve their business objectives." In this new role for the organization, Taimur joins Paul Daley, Cielo’s Director of Asia Pacific and Chris Herrmannsen to form the Asia Pacific regional leadership team.

“Over the last several years, we have made significant investments in Asia, and as such, needed to rethink how we sourced the talent required to support our growing business in the region,” said Clifford Taylor, vice president, Human Resources Asia at Mead Johnson Nutrition. “Cielo helped us to effectively build and understand our recruitment pipeline in a way that attracted new and better talent. Their flexible approach allowed us to fill positions faster and with the most qualified candidates.”
