“I have been a candidate of JP once and I previously worked with him when I was hiring myself for previous teams and was duly impressed both times with Perry’s professional recruitment acumen, advise and follow up. In a professional services business where follow up and client engagement matters Perry was outstanding. I highly recommend Perry to future candidates”

“Like finding a hidden restaurant that you want to hide away from everyone else or a shortcut through rush hour traffic that only you want to use :-). I give this recommendation with a heavy heart because Perry is one of those rare recruitment partners you wish everyone could be – one of the very best that you want to use exclusively and selfishly. He has opened up avenues to Asia and The East and also the Australian markets that have allowed us to make placements in markets we couldn’t possibly have even dreamt about until we crossed paths a year ago. Not only did he introduce us to new markets but new industries as well, a truly giving and patient person that gave us his time to educate me and my team in his specialised Private Banking and Insurance niches and at the same time provide hope and good guidance in equal measure.”

“JP is a highly dedicated, energetic and effective professional who is very instrumental in driving business results and influencing others in the process. I am extremely impressed by his contemporary approach and deep industry perspectives that he brought to the table during our various discussions. He was always on the look out for creative out of the box solutions. A great listener and strategic thinker who can draw on a wealth of business successes and endeavors over many years of experience and market cycles. Perry’s valuable insights on Talent Management and Executive Recruitment in my view are critical to the success of his clients’ organization during these turbulent times.”

“I have had the pleasure to know and work with Perry since 2010 and engaged him to help me source High Quality Private Bankers. I have always found Perry to be professional in his approach and he was highly accurate in his interpretation of the brief and in matching candidates to the high standard expected by Coutts. I have no hesitation in recommending Perry as an Executive Search Recruiter of the best standard.”
