Full Name: Jonny Plews
Position: Group Director, Asia
Linkedin Profile:

Jonny started his recruitment career in 2003 and he has been with Oliver James Associates since then.  A perfect example of home-grown talent, Jonny has climbed the ranks from Associate Consultant up to Board Director. 

Jonny initially focused on the UK market, though when the global financial crisis took place in 2009, Jonny took advantage of the situation and moved his focus onto continental Europe.  After two years growing our first international offering into Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Jonny then moved out to Hong Kong in 2011, setting up our first office in the Asia Pacific.  Since then Jonny has grown our presence in Asia substantially, with an office opening up in Singapore in 2016 and more planned in the coming years.

Although the focus initially in Asia was within insurance, we now work across all of financial services with a separate technology division focusing on e-commerce. We also have a well-established legal team offering candidates to private practice firms and in-house positions.
