MichioKonoWhitney Group, the international financial and IT recruitment firm, has announced the appointment of Michio Kono, who will carry out search assigments in the company's Tokyo office. Kono joins from Robert Walters in Hong Kong where she was responsible for senior level placements in the Japanese financial services market.

The company says it wanted to boost its presence in Japan as investment banking clients are always looking to find undiscovered talent, and Kono will help Whitney to exploit this need.
