Sheffield Haworth, which opened its doors for business in Hong Kong earlier this year, has announced that it has hired Adrian Bottomley to join its team in Hong Kong. Bottomley will be a divisional director of the firm responsible for global markets executive search.

Bottomley joins the firm from The Exchange Consulting Group in London where he worked as a headhunter for three years. Prior to that Bottomley was a fixed income derivatives salesman for Tullet & Tokyo in Hong Kong for six years.

He brings considerable market and search consultancy experience to the team. His expertise in the credit derivatives and fixed income markets is second to none."

Separately the firm has headhunted Vivien Wong from rival headhunter Robert Walters to join Sheffield Haworth as an associate, supporting the team with research capabilities.
