Charles Ferguson, former Chief Commercial Officer for Tricor Group, will lead Globalization Partners’ next phase of expansion into Asia-Pacific, which includes the launch of a new Asia-Pacific revenue team.

In his new role as General Manager and head of Globalization Partners business in the Asia-Pacific region, Ferguson will be responsible for the scaling and efficiency of the Asia-Pacific revenue-generation team, managing the company’s partner strategy and capturing the market need for Asian companies looking for a simple and easy way to go global.

He said, “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.”

Having maintained back-office operations in Asia since 2014, a US$150 million funding round this February is continuing to support Globalization Partners’ international expansion, including in Asia-Pacific, where Ferguson and his team will support companies looking to expand both within and outside the region.

Nicole Sahin, CEO and founder of Globalization Partners, said, “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.

“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.”

One company that has benefited from working with Globalization Partners is Archive360, which took advantage of Globalization Partners’ insight into employment standards and regulations in Australia to quickly and easily hire their director of services to facilitate the company’s expansion into the region.

Robert DeSteno, CEO and co-founder of Archive360, explained, “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.”
