Mark Keith joins as Managing Director – Asia Pacific for HVS Executive Search.

HVS, the world’s leading hospitality consulting and services organization is pleased to share that its HVS Executive Search division, now has an even stronger ability to provide global executive search expertise, having added Asia as a continent to its existing portfolio.

Over the years, HVS Executive Search has established its reputation as the premier human capital advisory services firm, specialising in senior-level executive search and mid-management recruitment as well as performance improvement strategies for the hospitality industry. With an already expansive global network, augmented by a firmer presence in Asia, HVS Executive Search possesses an unparalleled global reach, having access to a vast pool of qualified profiles through its 400,000-strong contact database. Furthermore, HVS Executive Search Partners are recognised and revered as being industry mentors in their respective regions, and have together executed over 4,000 mid to high level searches across the globe.

HVS announced today that Mark Keith has re-joined the company, effective immediately, in the capacity of Managing Director - Asia Pacific for HVS Executive Search; and with his return to the HVS family, the success story is here to continue. Mark’s hospitality career has centred on people and their performance, with early experiences in Nigeria, Iran, Lesotho, Switzerland and across the Middle East. He moved to Hong Kong in 1982 to lead corporate human resources for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and went on to take up similar roles with Holiday Inn Worldwide and the Peninsula Group. He has also previously served as President - Asia Pacific for HVS Executive Search, for a long tenure of 11 years. In his new role, Mark will be joined by his colleagues Scott Chiesa and Celeste Murphy. Together, they have a track record and depth of experience that uniquely qualifies them to lead and expand the HVS Executive Search practice and the distinctive services it offers to clients in Asia.

On the occasion of his return, Mark shares “My career has always been about the people side of the business; and what has constantly inspired me is enabling people and companies to achieve their potential. HVS Executive Search is not just another business, it is more about solving our clients' human capital challenges; and this often results in extraordinary career breakthroughs for the people we recruit. That continues to be a source of great satisfaction. Finding that perfect person for that critical position, is what we strive to do each day and the HVS network enables us to do that effectively in Asia as well as in other parts of the world.”

Stephen Rushmore, Jr., President and CEO of HVS, further highlights “HVS is committed to developing a strong global presence in core markets and Asia Pacific is an extremely important region for us. Mark Keith is a proven executive search professional whose leadership and knowledge of the market will position us for growth through the future addition of search professionals in China, Singapore and Thailand. I am excited and honoured to have Mark join HVS Executive Search from his base in Hong Kong and further corroborate our strategic growth plan for the Asia Pacific market.
