Ami has a long standing career in search, handling assignments in a range of industries with a strong focus in the consumer goods, retail, sourcing and industrial sectors. Her breadth of experience includes placing senior level talent into regional and single market roles, as well as partnering with colleagues and clients internationally, on global searches. She has worked with multinational and emerging companies alike, focussing mainly on recruiting for positions based in Asia, especially the Greater China region. She has a strong reputation in understanding client needs, her knowledge of the talent market, and taking a solutions-driven approach on assignments.

Prior to joining August Leadership, Ami has spent most of her career with two other leading global executive search firms with over 15 years at the Partner level, and also had a stint at an entrepreneurial-style boutique search firm. Ami holds a bachelors degree in economics and masters degree in Human Resources management from the University of London (external program).

Ami has been involved in opportunities to teach and mentor students over the past decade. She enjoys traveling, crafting and the arts in general.

“I was very impressed with Ami’s knowledge of candidates in the luxury goods and drinks market in Asia. In a very tight timeframe, this enabled us to hire a General Manager with the right cultural experience to run our business in Asia and report into a traditional company based in the UK. Her insights, and her understanding of attracting senior and management level talent in the region are excellent,”
