London, UK (PRWEB) October 7, 2006
Antal International, a world leader in executive recruitment, has further increased their global presence by announcing the official opening of an office in the financial hub of Mumbai, India in October 2006.
Joseph Devasia, assumes the position of Managing Partner of Antal India. With 12 years experience in IT and business development spread across the manufacturing and service industries and together with a team of MBA graduates the office will focus on the Finance, Sales, Marketing, Technology and HR functions across core sectors of banking, financial services, insurance, retail, real estate, FMCG and IT/ Telecommunications.
Commenting on the move, Antal CEO, Tony Goodwin said. “India is now the 2nd fastest growing economy in the world with a GDP expected to reach $740 billion US by end of 2006. With a total population of 1.07 billion, 13 million alone residing in the city of Mumbai, it makes sense to extend the Antal network into the commercial and entertainment capital of India.”
“Antal is going towards where the demands are from clients and candidates alike – not only is Mumbai the most populated city of India, it also has most of the important financial institutions and corporate headquarters of most Indian and international companies, all of whom are looking to increase headcounts to meet the exponential growth in economy.”
Goodwin added, “Our goal is to have a pan-India Antal network of offices and plans are already in place to open another office within the next six months as we expand to fulfil demand in this exciting arena.”
