Over the past ten-years I have utilized the services of Leanne Bell to source talent for leadership and commercial roles across the Asia Pacific Region. Whilst with Microsoft APAC, I engaged the services of Leanne and her team to service all of our key recruitment requirements for the New Zealand MSN business which I believe contributed significantly to the success of the brand in growing market share and profitability. Leanne is incredibly connected to the market's best talent, astute in terms of overall business outcomes and always conducts herself in a manner which has both candidates and clients develop a strong loyalty to her services.
