Candice Zhao – A Tale of Two Cities

Candice Zhao

This month we celebrate Candice Zhao’s twelfth year with the Swann Group – a period dominated by travel between two of the world’s great cities.

Candice joined Swann Global in 2010. She started as a Research Associate in Swann’s Melbourne office, supporting global searches and the development of our thought leadership content.

After several years in Australia, Candice returned to China to help launch our Shanghai office and take on the role of Research Lead for the Asia Pacific region. She spent five years building an impressive network of industry leaders in China before moving back to Melbourne in 2016.

From there, Candice continued to support the Shanghai office while also managing the development of Swann’s global network within the engineering, mining services and consulting industries.

Now once again based in Shanghai, she identifies and recruits top executives and management-level candidates throughout China and overseas.

Candice brings an in-depth understanding of the China and Australia market players and has successfully delivered many challenging assignments. She has mentored several researchers and is a valuable member of our Global Research team,” said Swann MD, Nona Sichinava.

“She joined us from a finance and legal background, which have proved to be invaluable additional attributes for her research and assessment work. But as much as anything, it’s Candice’s positive approach and willingness to support her colleagues that make her such a valued member of the team.”

We hope Candice continues to enjoy the best of times with Swann for many years to come.
