JAC Group expands recruitment operation into the USA first office in Los Angeles

In line with their forthcoming geographic expansion plans, JAC Group will open their first JAC Recruitment operation in the United States on January 4, 2023. Located in Los Angeles, California, JAC Recruitment (US), Inc. will help serve the increasing demand for professional recruitment support services for multinational companies in the U.S. market with Japanese operations.

“Due to the recent pandemic, we were forced to temporarily put a break on our expansion plans but considering the post-pandemic situation and our long-term plans, we will enter the US market from January next year. The U.S., which has been the focus of the recruitment industry in recent years, is a very attractive market for us and we are very much looking forward to providing our services to Japanese and other multinational companies in the U.S.”, shares Chairman and CEO of JAC Group, Hiromi Tazaki.

JAC Recruitment (US), Inc. will continue to focus on delivering JAC Group’s core service, placing midto-senior candidates in specialised roles through contingent recruitment and retained search, with a view to expand into diversified service lines and locations in the future.

“Over the past few years, many of our clients across the Asia-Pacific and European regions were beginning to expand in the U.S. Expanding into the U.S. has always been part of our long-term strategy,” shares Adil Driouech, Managing Director (Ex-Japan) of JAC Recruitment International.

JAC Recruitment (US) Inc. will be led by company President, Kenji Minami, who leaves his post as Partner at VantagePoint, JAC Recruitment’s executive search company in Japan. Prior to joining VantagePoint, Minami worked for several top banking, finance, and management consulting firms in senior analytical, credit, and financial management positions. In 2012, Minami became a Partner at VantagePoint, one of Japan’s leading high-level recruitment firms, renowned for helping many multinational companies from Japan cross borders and scale into new markets.

We are excited this expansion is finally underway. It’s something I have personally been looking forward to for some time,” shares Kenji Minami, President of JAC Recruitment (US) Inc.
