Technology recruitment solutions company SwissGulf Partners has announced the appointment of Mike Wilson as its new Regional Director. The award-winning company has taken Wilson on board in order to develop its services and expand into new markets across the Middle East and Asia.

It is a particularly exciting time for SGP. Fresh from winning the Best Digital and Technology Recruitment Group category at the 2019 UAE Business Awards, the company is in the midst of a rapid expansion phase. Wilson will lead with work in the Middle East and Asia, where SGP is supporting some of the world’s largest brands and most exciting start-ups by building out their tech teams.

James Kevan, Co-Founder of SwissGulf Partners, comments:

“In the past quarter, SGP have on-boarded a record number of new clients across the Middle East and Asia, and we are delighted to welcome Mike Wilson on board as our Regional Director for the Middle East and Asia markets. The senior nature of Mike’s experience makes this a particularly exciting time for the growth of SGP as it coincides with the launch of further services that will build on our already solid offering”

Wilson joins SGP having held senior appointments with Goldman Sachs and Emirates Airline via Pontoon Solutions across the Middle East, Asia and Australasia and has in-depth experience of working with technology contractors and managing large scale on-site recruitment projects.

His experience ties in perfectly with the development of SGP’s on-site and project recruitment offering and with the broader need to provide technology contractors to major clients across the region.

SGP already has hundreds of contractors working on-site for its clients and enjoys a growing reputation for its commitment to its contractor community. It’s an approach that sets the company apart, and one that speaks volumes about its dedication to investing in and looking after the people with whom it works.

New SGP Regional Director Mike Wilson comments, 

“I’ve experienced working with SGP as a client and have moved into heading up their regional development strategy due to a genuine belief in the work that the business is undertaking. The SGP founders are passionate about using technological innovation to connect people with the right opportunities with a real relationship first attitude, and this passion is echoed throughout the SGP team. I’m delighted to now be a part of expanding that valuable service offering across the Middle East and Asia.”
