​Cobalt is excited to announce the promotion of Siu Leong of the Singapore office.

Siu brings a wealth of expertise to his new role, with over a decade of experience in Singapore, and has been integral to the growth of the Singapore business in recent years. This is a natural progression for Siu and the result of careful succession planning to ensure that our Singapore business can evolve and remain the trusted recruitment partner of choice in Singapore.

After eight and a half years as Managing Director in Singapore, Marcus Davies Bateman is now conducting a handover to Siu, before returning to take up a senior role within the UK business in the coming weeks.

“Siu has been fantastic in helping me to build Cobalt Singapore over the past 4 years. We have the strongest team of dedicated and talented Consultants that I have ever worked with, and under Siu's stewardship the business is in great hands to continue our path to being the leading search firm in Asia.”

Siu joined Cobalt in 2016 and has been responsible for managing the Real Estate, Principal Investment, Construction and Legal departments. He has fantastic support in Aji Abu who leads the Engineering, Property Technology and Finance & Accounting Teams.

James Wakefield, CEO of Cobalt, comments:

“It has been fantastic to see Siu develop into the leader he is today, and it is truly exciting to have our Singapore business under this new leadership. 2020 may have been challenging, but it hasn’t stopped us from evolving, making the right decisions and moving forwards.”
