Head of Tiger Private

Laura encapsulates Tiger Private’s vision by providing a bespoke, highly personalised service – after all, the positions she recruits must be the ‘perfect match’!

A little-known fact about Laura? She once lived in rural China as a teacher, and her school entered her into a national singing competition. Laura sang live, in Chinese, on national state television – and came second!

What makes you fiercely distinctive?

The fact I’m not a veteran recruiter. My background as a Chief of Staff and Private PA means that I understand first-hand private households and family offices, and so am tuned into the needs of my clients and candidates.
