Tom Sorensen has left Grant Thornton to team up with Boyden Thailand as a Partner.
“I was attracted by Boyden’s business model that combines retained search, interim management executives and human capital consulting,” Tom Sorensen said.
“Boyden’s global network brings a uniform approach to top executive and management recruitment, a common global technology platform and the world’s best CRM client and candidate software.,” he adds
Tom comes to Boyden with 14 years of executive recruitment experience at Grant Thornton Thailand. He explained, “As an international audit firm, we found it increasingly difficult to provide non-audit services (including executive search) to the firm’s many global audit clients. An audit anywhere in the world, of a company in the same group as our client in Thailand, effectively blocked us from getting involved here. SEC rules and other compliance laws will continue to make life more and more difficult for audit firms that provide non-audit services as well. Could this spell the end for audit and non-audit services in the same firm?”
Tom is an active blogger on tomsorensen.in.th and columnist, and writes thought leadership articles for web sites, magazines and newspapers. He is a sought-after public speaker in the Thai and international business community. He is a former president, chairman, and director of many organizations and committees including Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce and Thai Board of Trade. As his personal Corporate Social Responsibility projects, Tom has for years been lecturing both students and business professionals at Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University, Mahidol University and Wall Street English on topics such as best recruitment practice, effective resume writing and job interviewing.
Boyden Thailand’s Managing Partner, Yupadee Yudhanaraweesak, added: “It’s like winning the lottery to have Tom join our team. He has for years built a strong corporate and personal brand as the person to go to for executive search. That he chose Boyden is a testament to our local and global brand as one of the world’s top retained search firms.”
