OUR TEAM

 


Our team has been compiled with the same sophisticated assessment that we employ for our clients, resulting in a rich assembly of experience, expertise and nationalities. As such we bring a diverse mix of industry sector, function and cultural expertise to all of our search projects. We look for the creative and revolutionary. Agora is constantly evolving, we are never stagnant and that, in part, comes from supporting our team to carve their own evolutionary paths within the company.

Driven by curiosity and collaboration, we value every team member’s perspective, from our recent graduate employee through to the CEO, all working towards continuous innovation for our search process and practices.

“Trust the young people; trust this generation’s innovation. They are making things, changing innovation every day. And all the consumers are the same…” Jack Ma
