On the back of the company’s US$150M funding round, Globalization Partners has launched its new Asia Pacific revenue team, appointing Charles Ferguson as General Manager for the region.

Globalization Partners offers an innovative platform that simplifies global business expansion. With significant business momentum across North America and EMEA over the last 12 months, Asia Pacific is the next key piece of the US-based company’s global growth trajectory.

Accelerating global growth

“Asia Pacific is one of the most dynamic markets in the world and I am looking forward to working with the team to build out our presence and drive opportunities in the region,” Ferguson said in a press statement.

More than just software, Globalization Partners offers a complete solution powered by the company’s own worldwide entities, in-house expertise, and fully-integrated technology. This enables companies to hire and retain team members in more than 180 countries — without the complexity of setting up international branch offices or subsidiaries.

The new Asia Pacific operations will support companies based in Asia who are looking to expand both within and outside the region. It will also support the company’s growing Asia Pacific customer base.

“Globalization Partners provided us with exceptional insight into employment standards and regulations in Australia, enabling us to quickly and easily hire our director of services to facilitate our expansion into that region,” said Archive360 Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Robert DeSteno.

“As the emerging global standard for intelligent enterprise information management, their solution made it easy for us to continue to concentrate on our business while avoiding the need to invest heavily in time or infrastructure that would typically be associated with expanding our team in Asia Pacific,” DeSteno said.

Bullish on APAC

“Our intention is to take our solution that enables any company to hire anyone, anywhere, in as little as twelve hours into every market around the globe,” said Globalization Partners Chief Executive Officer and Founder Nicole Sahin.

“The Asia Pacific region represents a significant opportunity and Charles Ferguson’s exceptional entrepreneurial and executive experience in Human Capital Management solutions will be key in enabling us to meet our growth goals,” she said.

Reporting to Globalization Partners Chief Revenue Officer Diane Albano, Ferguson will be responsible for the scaling and efficiency of the Asia Pacific revenue generation team, managing the company’s partner strategy, and ultimately replicating the phenomenal success of Globalization Partners in North America.

“We anticipate that APAC will be one of our fastest-growing regions and Charles will be instrumental in executing our on-the-ground strategy. His strong leadership and unparalleled expertise in leading business expansion initiatives in Asia is ideally suited as we grow our presence there,” Albano said.

Ferguson was most recently Group Chief Commercial Officer for Tricor Group, a leading business expansion specialist in Asia. Prior to this role, he was President and General Manager for the Asia Pacific region at ADP. He also co-founded management consulting and advisory services firm ReedHamilton, where he led the technology and innovation practice. Prior to that, he held positions at SAP, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Intel.
