Prior to joining ChapmanCG, Albert spent more than 10 years as the regional CFO in Asia for a listed US recruitment firm. During this time, he helped to establish a number of offices for the company in key regional markets including Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Taipei and Tokyo. Albert has over 18 years’ experience in the recruitment industry and has also led acquisition projects in China and Dubai.

Before he made the transition into recruitment, Albert worked in the hospitality and freight forwarding industries. Outside of work Albert enjoys playing tennis, watching movies and good food.

Enabling Excellence and Inclusivity

Our Mission

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 the United States or Europe. 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 organisation and expand our footprint outside of Asia Pacific.

Purpose

We are the world's only executive search firm dedicated to the Human Resources profession with a presence in all major regions. Our purpose is to work across all industries and HR specialisations, from director level to CHRO level.

A specialist boutique with a heavy emphasis on HR thought leadership, HR networking and our loyal global network, we work quickly and efficiently in engaging the best HR talent anywhere in the world.

As the talent we helped appoint advanced into expansive geographies, they turned to us to help build their HR teams and eventually to chart their next career moves.
