Who We Are
What Drives Us
How It All Began
For over 25 years, our Founder, Andrew Britton, has been a leader in executive search across Asia. Working with top banks, multinational corporations, VCs and startups, he has been a partner in the search for talent and leadership in the region. What became increasingly clear to him through conversations with the c-suite was the importance of hiring diverse talent and the desire to consider a candidate holistically. Andrew realized that video engagement tools had the potential to transform recruiting and could be a huge asset in helping both applicants and reviewers make wiser choices. And so gradGREENHOUSE was born.
The products that Andrew envisioned are now helping employers make better hiring decisions and enabling candidates to stand out in a very competitive marketplace. gradGREENHOUSE creates global access to opportunities, facilitates recruitment of diverse talent and streamlines the application process to put the control back in the hands of candidates and recruiters. Our virtual engagement platforms focus on the people side of admissions and recruitment - engagement, connection and authenticity. And the rest is history.
Andrew is a leading executive search consultant with deep roots in Asia Pacific who has placed hundreds of senior executives across all functions, asset classes and divisions with leading financial institutions, multinationals and specialist startups. He understands firsthand what employers are looking for in top talent. Andrew began his career in Hong Kong with The Economist newspaper before moving into recruitment and has a passion for helping his clients - both candidates and hiring managers - become market leaders. Born in the United Kingdom and having spent his childhood in Jakarta and Manila, Andrew attended the University of Liverpool before returning to Asia to live in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
