Morgan Philips announces partnership with Executive Search firm Harper & Hill and launches new business in the Philippines amid further expansion.
Hailed as one of the world’s strongest emerging markets, the Philippines is positioning itself as a key business hub for Asian and international commerce, with Forbes describing it as ‘resilient and rising’ in the face of worldwide political and economic uncertainty. As part of its continued global growth, Morgan Philips is partnering with executive search firm Harper & Hill, setting up a new office in Metro Manila.
2020 marks a new and exciting chapter for both Harper & Hill and Morgan Philips Group, with the former officially using the name Morgan Philips in the Philippines. Combining Harper & Hill’s established presence in the region with Morgan Philips’ existing global network, the new venture is primed to disrupt the Asian recruitment landscape.
Harper & Hill was founded in 2016 by Angelo Cenon Valdez, previously Director of Morgan Philips’ Asia Pacific operations. The new partnership enables Morgan Philips Group to grow its portfolio in South East Asia, having already established a research centre in the Philippines – one of four such global functions dedicated to sourcing candidates 24/7 for organisations around the world.
Speaking on the merger, Mr. Valdez says that “the agreement is testament to Morgan Philips Group’s faith in South East Asian entrepreneurship, particularly in regards to new venture creation, the showcasing of new ideas and investment in resources to build a successful enterprise.”
The move symbolizes Morgan Philips’ continued investment in South East Asia, offering regional businesses the latest in data-led talent solutions. With a tailored team of specialist consultants, Morgan Philips specialists in the Philippines will cover a vast range of sectors and industries, which are listed here.
“The increasing pace of technological development has significantly improved the potential for new venture creation,” says Samuel Tamagnaud, Deputy CEO of Morgan Philips Group and President France, Middle East & Africa and South East Asia. “We are particularly excited to promote the new world of work within our latest office in Metro Manila, itself a symbol of economic evolution.
“With this agreement, our Philippines business can leverage the specialist expertise we already have in markets such as Singapore, south east Asia and around the world. Awareness of global markets and rapid market expansion have served to create a wide and varied pool of new potential talent, allowing businesses to expand their scope of operations across international borders. We very much look forward to seeing how this new found partnership develops.”
