ChapmanCG was founded in Singapore in 2008 with the mission of being the world’s most respected and innovative HR search firm. Over time, many international HR leaders in Asia Pacific who worked with us began to return to global HR head roles in U.S. or European headquartered organisations. And because of the relationships we developed with them and their satisfaction with the searches we partnered on, they asked us to help build their global HR teams. So in 2011, we made the decision to become a truly global organization and expand our footprint outside of Asia Pacific.

Today we have our client-facing teams spread across the world, with our research function and much of our back office hubbed in  Singapore, but serving global needs.
