For the first time in the Philippines, an Association of Professional Executive Search Professionals (PAESPI) has been formed under the leadership of Amrop.
The Mission of the PAESPI is to promote professionalism in the industry through an information drive among clients and executive talents which highlights a specific Code of Ethics, patterned after the global AESC (Association of Executive Search Consultants). As co-founders of the Association, Jun Gil (Managing Director, Amrop Philippines) was elected President and Patty Gallardo (Managing Director, Amrop Philippines) was elected Secretary.
Rob Pocknee, Amrop Vice Chair for Asia Pacific, commented, “We are proud of the leadership of our Partners in Manila. They represent the high level of professionalism for which Amrop is known, and continue to lead the way in their best practice approach to executive search in the Philippines.”
Presentations featuring the Code of Ethics have been positively received and endorsed by senior executives from 5 industry groups in several breakfast events hosted by Amrop in Manila. Further events are planned, as well as featured articles in leading newspapers to supplement the "Are our values aligned with yours?" advertising campaign among foreign Chambers of Commerce and local Management Associations throughout the Philippines.
