Jonathan is based in Singapore. Prior to joining the executive search industry, Jonathan held several key management appointments with international conglomerates across Asia. With one of the largest semiconductor companies in the world, he successfully managed its multi-billion-dollar South East Asia distribution business; and while with a global passenger transport company, Jonathan concurrently held two appointments – Vice President, Corporate HR and Vice President (Operations) for its Media Business. Earlier in his career, Jonathan also led Staffing and Employer Branding Programs across the Asia-Pacific & Japan region, for a major Fortune 500 technology company.

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.

Jonathan graduated from the Nanyang Technological University with an Honors degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is fluent in English, Chinese and understands several other languages in Southeast Asia.


Born in Singapore, an island-city in South East Asia, I speak fluent English and Chinese, as well as, several other Asian languages. Since I was a child, I have always been curious about everything, breaking things apart just to see how it works (although not always able to put it back together again) – so when the time came for me to choose a career, I could possibly have been a surgeon or an engineer… I made the safer choice… I graduated as a Mechanical & Production Engineer from the local university.
Being an executive search consultant was NEVER my childhood dream. However, looking back, I can only wish that I had joined this industry earlier. Being an executive search consultant satisfies my curious nature - with every new assignment, I get the opportunity to learn more about another industry, another job role, and the license to probe into the careers of candidates. Better still, I get paid doing what I love to do!
I live in Singapore with my lovely wife, two kids - Joshua and Josephine, and our corgi – Jag.
