Pedersen & Partners, the leading international Executive Search firm, continues to expand in the APAC Region by establishing a new office in Kuala Lumpur with Peter Lisney as Country Manager for Malaysia. Prior to joining Pedersen & Partners, Lisney founded and managed a boutique Executive Search firm in Kuala Lumpur specialising in mandates for senior-level executive positions across South East Asia and the Middle East. Over the past 15 years, he has developed strong expertise in partnering with clients across South East Asia to help them build high-performing leadership teams in the Financial Services, Consumer Products, Shared Services, Life Sciences, and Industrial segments.

The opening of an office in Malaysia enhances Pedersen & Partners’ position as a global player and strengthens the firm’s presence in Asia Pacific.

Gary Williams, Deputy Managing Partner and Head of Asia Pacific: “The new office signifies another step in our strategic development in Asia Pacific to further support our global clients, as they are increasingly seeking an integrated cross-border approach. The KL office is set to provide Malaysian businesses and MNCs with the best available talent through our proven Executive Search process and the expertise of our team. Peter’s international track record and network, leadership skills and entrepreneurial approach make him the perfect choice to manage our operations in Malaysia and continue providing the exceptional service to which our clients are accustomed.”

Peter Lisney, Client Partner and Country Manager for Malaysia: “It is a great privilege to have the opportunity to join an organisation that is aligned with the values of trust, relationship and professionalism, and promotes access to best leadership talent across emerging and developing markets. I’m delighted to be part of Pedersen & Partners’ journey in Malaysia to deliver solutions for our clients which will make a meaningful impact on their growth.”
