NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CTPartners (NYSE MKT: CTP), a leading global retained executive search firm, announced today that Paul Aldrich in Hong Kong and Tim Kemp in London will lead the firm’s Global Chief Human Resources Officer practice in Asia and Europe, respectively.
“The Role and Influence of Human Resource Management in the Capital Markets and Investment Banking Industry”
CTPartners’ Dan Kaplan, Managing Partner, Global Head of the Human Resources practice, commented, “Strengthening the global capability of our CHRO practice allows us to continue to help companies assess the profile of their Human Resources leader. CHROs are expected to serve as strategic counsel to CEOs and boards in the search for the talent that is an organization’s greatest competitive edge. Expanding the Global CHRO practice addresses this continuing need.”
Managing Partner Paul Aldrich will lead the CHRO practice in Asia from CTPartners’ Hong Kong office. Paul’s global perspective and keen assessment abilities, drawn from his experience as an industry executive and search consultant in major financial centers, enables him to discern specific client needs and attract talent. His search experience and his successful defense of his thesis for a Doctorate in Business from Durham University, “The Role and Influence of Human Resource Management in the Capital Markets and Investment Banking Industry,” informs Paul’s understanding of the talent management challenges faced by his clients.
Tim Kemp joined CTPartners as a Partner with the firm’s acquisition of Augmentum in the UK and will lead the CHRO practice in Europe from the London office. Tim has a background in HR, Management Consulting and HR transformation across a range of industries including Financial Services, Life Sciences, Oil and Gas, TMT and the Public Sector. He leads a range of projects, from pure executive search assignments to broader talent management projects. Previously he was a Price Waterhouse Cooper consulting partner, where he gained the broad perspective of client needs that informs his Human Resources work.
Brian Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer of CTPartners, said, “Paul and Tim have the vision and experience to build on the work we have done finding the finest CHRO talent for our clients. They understand the factors driving the rise of the CHRO, a role that didn’t exist ten years ago but has become a top priority in a competitive global world. They will help clients upgrade their talent management capabilities, and we look forward to their success and the future of the practice.”
