My Background

I have been recruiting within the services sector covering professional, media, and hospitality and entertainment industries in Hong Kong since 2011. I joined Ambition in January 2014 and specialise in senior-level placements in these areas. Prior to recruitment, I was an educational advisor providing consultative services for entry into elite boarding schools and universities in the United States. What has always been important to me is being able to positively influence others.

Roles I recruit for

Senior and Executive level positions (Manager, Senior Manager, Director, Vice President, General Manager, Country Head, and upwards) within the following industries:

-  Financial Solutions, Information Services and Fintech
-  Professional Services: Legal / Consulting / Accountancy firms
-  Corporate and Fiduciary services providers
-  Media
-  Agency
-  Travel, Hospitality, Entertainment
-  Education, NGOs, Charities, Government

What my clients and candidates say about me:

“Leona really takes the time to understand what I have to offer.”

“I've met many recruitment agents in my time and Leona’s advice stuck with me a long time in terms of my eventual career trajectory.”

“Leona has shown great skill at connecting with candidates throughout the interview process, and finding the difficult balance of promoting our job opening while not setting unrealistic expectations.”

Outside of Ambition

Having grown up in the US, I used to be an avid figure-skater and ice-hockey player but ice rinks are few and far between in Hong Kong! These days I practice yoga, swim, and shoot targets. I like to play board games competitively and travel. Also, I'm kind of a foodie so I love trying out the newer restaurants in the city. I have serious cravings for spicy food at least once a week so I am constantly looking out for the best Sichuan outlets.
