At Helex Asia, we believe that focus is the key to success in executive search. This is because a deep understanding of the specialist area will enable the search firm to find the most suitable candidates for the employers while also giving career advice to the candidates.

That’s why we started Asia’s first and only executive search firm focused exclusively on Management Consulting talent. Helex Asia’s CEO is a former McKinsey Consultant and has a deep understanding of what drives the industry and candidates in Asia. As a service to our clients and candidates, our CEO posts all Asia-related white papers of the top-tier consulting firms on his Twitter page and Sina Weibo page. McKinsey China, bcg.perspectives and A.T. Kearney all follow Alex’ updates on Twitter.

We work only on the following positions:

Multinational corporations & banks

Positions in Strategy / In-house Consulting / internal M&A across all levels (from Analyst to Department Head). This constitutes the majority of our work (~80%).

Consulting firms

Senior Consultants and above (post-MBA only; ~10% of our work); we do not place fresh (MBA-) graduates into Consulting. We also do not handle pure Business Development roles.

Buy side

Analysts & Associates (mostly pre-MBA; ~10% of our work) where clients want to bring in raw talent with a Management Consulting skill set.

Over 90% of our candidates are current or former employees of the following firms: McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Booz, A.T. Kearney. Our candidates typically hold a top-20 MBA, and speak one or more Asian languages fluently. Most of our candidates are referred to us through our extensive network.

Geographically, Helex Asia recruits across Asia with a focus on Greater China and Singapore (mainly Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore). Our Executive Search Consultants have been living and working across the region for many years, and we know the Management Consulting talent market in these locales inside-out.
