Principal Consultant & Head of Asia, Financial Sam Corn

As head of financial communications, Sam advises and recruits for the world’s most renowned strategic communications and global advisory consultancies, international publicly listed businesses and blue-chip financial services firms. Having lived and worked in the UK, Europe, and Asia, Sam has advised clients and candidates globally, and is uniquely positioned to provide a truly international perspective on talent in the financial comms and financial services world.

A graduate of Kingston University, Sam was a competitive rower and head coach. He's still involved in big events - like the run-up to the Henley Royal Regatta. He's also religious about the NFL... far too clued-up on the nuances of the game for a Brit! He's fluent in French too, having grown up in the south of France.
