Rochelle Park-based talent advisory firm ZRG expanded into the Australian market with the hiring of two new managing directors.
Managing Director David Scambler is based in Sydney and Managing Director Garreth Ball is based in Brisbane. Both men bring with them backgrounds in search and talent advisory as well as an on-the-ground knowledge of the Australian business landscape.
Scambler’s specialization in financial services across banking, asset management and infrastructure will bolster the company’s financial services and industrial practices. Ball’s experience in transport, logistics and supply chain will further enhance ZRG’s industrial proposition in the region.
“Being a global firm means you need to be able to deliver insights to clients around their strategic talent needs through a global lens,” said ZRG CEO Larry Hartmann in a prepared statement. “It means that we have specialists who truly understand the needs of our clients in every country where those clients do business. Adding an Australian presence to our Asian operations means that we have deeper resources for our clients throughout the Pacific Rim.”
Scambler said he was excited to join ZRG, noting “the innovative and contemporary approach the firm brings to clients through the leveraging of AI and data analytics makes the sourcing of talent more robust, timely and thorough.” Ball called ZRG’s technology and data driven process “a huge value add for clients, when used in conjunction with the traditional subjective assessment approach.”
This is ZRG’s first entry into the Australian market. Its international reach spans areas of Asia and Europe, as well.
