Jonathan first started his executive search career as the Managing Director with one of Asia’s oldest executive search firms, in-charge of Life Sciences, Industrial Engineering and Technology practice groups. Since then, he has built a solid track record of successfully placing leadership and professional positions all across Asia.

Mr. Bernardo Entschev, President AIMS International, extends a huge welcome to Jonathan: “It is indeed a privilege to welcome Jonathan to the Executive Board in this crucial role as ASIA becomes an increasingly important growth contributor in the AIMS organisation.  I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Adarsh Matta, who worked tirelessly to grow and support our offices in the region over the last years and was also key in bringing Jonathan into our family”.
