I've worked with Brian and he is a professional and 'gets it'. Very down to earth and understands exactly what your needs are and quick to react and respond. I continue to work with him.
Even though I have know Brian for a short time in this new journey of my career transition I have been impressed about how extremely focused he is to make sure the client comes first. He manages the sometimes difficult bridge between client and candidate expectations in a professional results driven manner. He has a keen understanding and perception on cultural fit for FMCG roles especially in Asia and his network and knowledge base particularly in QSR is excellent.
I have had the pleasure of working with Brian over the last three years as he recruited me for my role in Indonesia. I also worked with Brian to recruit a new CMO for my team. The recruitment industry is an industry that in my view is full of very unprofessional people that have no right to recruit professionals when they can not even manage themselves. Brian is the polar opposite of this. I rate him as one of the very best recruiters that I have worked with personally and on international searches for new team members to join my team. Brian has excellent connections that assist him in finding the right candidates. Brian manages the process very professionally. His communication between both parties is timely and on message. Brian’s follow up post placement is outstanding. He cares about getting the right candidate, how the candidate is performing and how the company is performing. This is so very rare in the recruitment industry. I highly recommend Brian. He is an outstanding representative for your company when you require new talent. You can always be assured of success when Brian is involved with a quality outcome.
Brian was hired to assist in a hiring effort that required the ability to find great talent (4 critical hires) in a very short period of time. Brian met that challenge and was a pleasure to work with. He followed up on details, managed candidates well and provided great insights - all while managing a client (me) on the other side of the world. I would highly recommend Brian and hope to work with him again."

Brian Moore has been the most professional recruitment | executive search consultant I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He came recommended from a number of my peers and definitely delivered! I would recommend him for any executive hire in the Global QSR | Fast Casual market place and any other market he is willing to work with you in. He is also not scared to be honest and tell you what isn't his area of expertise.
Brian is a committed professional search executive who impressed me with his understanding of the QSR industry, the players and also some great insight into the people and role that Brian was trying to fill. Even after the search was over, Brian followed up to provide additional details and to stay connected for other activities that may come up later. I found him to be a trustworthy and reliable executive and would highly recommend him for other search activities.
I have met dozens of recruiters over the course of my career and, in an industry that attracts those who hide behind a fragile persona of hubris and bravado, it’s rare to find the real deal.

Whether keeping abreast of people movement within the industry, new technologies and practices or industry developments in general, his knowledge is unique, focussed and deliberate. It’s rare to find someone with a clearly defined value system who is also adept at identifying the opportunity for both the employer and employee, producing the best possible results for both parties. As a consequence he has earned not just my respect, but also my admiration, Brian Moore is a sincere, high performing executive search consultant – in short he's the real deal!

I have known Brian for most of my professional career in Financial Services in Asia and the US. Throughout that time I have found Brian to be an invaluable partner, effectively combining strategic thinking with the highest quality execution in order to deliver optimal results for his candidates and clients. I would highly recommend Brian Moore Executive Search.
Brian has a deep and thorough knowledge of Asia, the culture and the talent available. He is truly interested in matching candidates with employers because he is one of the very few recruiters in the market that actually views his candidates as long term clients and not just commodities to be sold/placed to procur a fee. Highly recommend him for both employers and candidates.
Brian is a consummate professional who takes the time to understand client needs and has been an excellent advisor.

In my opinion, Brian stands out for the depth of his experience, his contacts, and the creativity and tenacity of his problem solving. But I mainly appreciate his honesty and willingness to talk frankly and to the point. Over the past 20 years I worked in Asia I have regularly referred my closest friends to Brian and I can think of no better recommendation than that.
I have interacted with Brian on a number of occasions and have found him to have a strong understanding of the critical success factors associated with senior managers operating in Asia. I would recommend him as either a coach or business partner for anyone who is trying to come to terms with what it takes to be successful in a senior management role in Asia.
"I've known Brian for about 10 years. His approach has always been pragmatic, extensive and creative. There is not many recruiting service, if any, comparable to what Brian can offer. Over the years, with or without successful placement, I found his advice valuable and the process helpful for me to think through options and possibilities. His service is more than a recruiting/career service, but more like a career coach, or even a life coach at times."

Other clients that have partnered with Brian
Brian appreciates what a 'retainer' means: the employer is trusting him with their money in advance of a successful outcome. Brian doesn't take that trust lightly - he doesn't rest until the successful outcome is delivered and that's why his retained clients stick with him. They also value the fact that they can always deal with him directly. If an employer is not based in the same country as Brian, and requests a face to face meeting with him, Brian can either fly to the employer's country to meet, or conduct a video conference over Skype or FaceTime. Brian also stays in close contact via phone, SMS, email, WhatsApp and WeChat.
