“I had the pleasure of working with Ben on an Executive appointment which crossed the US and Japanese markets. From his initial call and throughout each of the interview stages which progressed over a series of months and culminated in an offer being received and accepted, Ben was transparent in his approach, meticulous in his preparation and focused on ensuring that the cultural and professional aspects of the role aligned. I valued his advice throughout the process and look forward to working with him again as we further develop the Japanese practice”.
