Datacenter People expands Asian presence

Global data center industry recruitment firm Datacenter People has revealed it will expand its practice in Asia, via a partnership with Singapore-based HR Exchange. 

HR Exchange will assist Datacenter People's APAC activities by providing local specialist knowledge and language support where necessary, whilst using Datacenter People's search process, systems, databases and exclusive industry network.

Before setting up HR Exchange in 2006, principal Julie Tan had been working in the HR area for more than 16 years. Her last corporate role was as Asia Pacific Head of Compensation & Benefits at American Power Conversion. Her technology recruitment expertise spans data centers, engineering and telecommunications. She has worked at all levels of personnel in both multinational enterprises (MNCs) and in Singapore small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

"We're delighted to be working with Julie," says Peter Hannaford, Datacenter People's chairman and founder. "Asia Pacific represents the biggest market in the world for the growth of the industry and our partnership will help us meet the challenge of finding the outstanding talent required by our international clients," he says. 

Tan adds, "I am very excited with our strategic partnership that is based on trust and collaboration. Definitely a ''GLO-CAL'' partnership to serve GLObal clients with loCAL expertise."
