JAC Group is pleased to announce that VantagePoint, the Group’s specialist executive search brand, will be opening its inaugural overseas branch on the East Coast, USA in July 2023. Strategically located in Charlotte, North Carolina, VantagePoint Executive Search US will spearhead the firm’s expansion plans in the world’s most dynamic labor market.

Since its establishment in Tokyo in 2012, VantagePoint has become a leading executive search firm specializing in driving senior, strategic hiring across professional services, private equity, and Tier-one enterprise clients. The business has gained an exceptional reputation in Japan for its unparalleled expertise and success in executive recruitment.

“Entering the US executive search market under our VantagePoint brand builds upon the business’s existing track record of success in Japan. We are very excited to extend our unrivaled executive search capabilities and renowned client-centric approach to our valued partners in North America" commented Hiromi Tazaki, Chairman and CEO of JAC Group. “The opening of this latest venture in the USA follows just six months after the opening of our JAC Recruitment operation in Los Angeles in January this year. The introduction of the VantagePoint brand continues our geographic expansion across key markets in the country to serve the demand from our growing US client base and now provides specialist executive search in addition to our existing professional recruitment solutions in the market.”

Shaun Sundberg, Managing Partner of VantagePoint added, “This is the first big step in establishing a seamless, global capability center for our clients’ growth initiatives — especially in their key markets. While we will have a strong focus on partnering locally in North America, VantagePoint’s presence there will also establish a strong bridge between APAC and the USA essential to best support our clients' global businesses.”
