FES Partners

Who we are

FES Partners is the executive search firm of choice for businesses seeking excellence and growth in Asia. We help international companies find, qualify and attract great leaders and technical experts across Asia in as little as six weeks.

Mid-market specialists

As a long-term business partner to leading “mittelstand” companies, we have the mid-market experience to quickly understand your needs and challenges – and tackle them with confidence.

Asia-wide talent pool

With teams in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Vietnam – and extensive placements in all main Asian markets – we give our clients access to a unique network of exceptional candidates in the region.

High-touch service

Clients praise our search process for being both effective and enjoyable. For us, a swift and successful placement is just as important as ensuring great communication at every step of the journey.

Industry expertise

Companies in the consumer & retail, machinery & automation, medical devices, automotive, chemicals & plastics, and technology sectors choose us for our industry-specific experience and established networks.



Most foreign firms in Greater China and SEA struggle with finding the right talent to help them realise their growth plans. With a sharp understanding of Western companies and of the local labour markets, FES Partners helps clients find ideal candidates for strategic and demanding positions. Companies looking for leaders and high-performers with unique skill sets have been placing their trust in us for over four decades. Our structured methodology and experienced team deliver consistently successful and fast results. Our multilingual consultants engage closely with each client and candidate to ensure understanding, confidentiality, and trust throughout the project and beyond.


As a value add for our executive search clients, we offer executive coaching to the candidates we place to help set them up for success during their probation period. Dora Zhong, partner and senior leader, is an ICF certified coach herself.

We believe the best coach for any team is the manager who leads them. So another service we offer is ‘Leaders as a coach’ trainings, where we equip leaders to become agents of change, and create a ripple effect within your organisation.
