Mar 29, 2019

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – The Australian Chamber of Commerce held its 2019 Australian Business Awards 8th of March 2019 at Park Hyatt Saigon, HCMC. This event aims to recognize top Australian businesses and individuals operating in Vietnam.

Curran Daly + Associates, Inc. (CD+A), an executive headhunter in Vietnam, joined the Australian/Vietnam business community and was one of the award sponsors of the event. CD+A was represented by Directors Geoff Curran and Kevin Fitzgerald.

Managing Director for Vietnam and Australia, Geoff Curran, had the honor of announcing the finalists for the Innovation Award. “We’re delighted to be able to sponsor the Innovation award,” Curran said. “From our point of view as an Executive Search Firm, we know that innovation is powerful in terms of the ability to sell a story or send a message to people, particularly where it’s really hard to find people – when candidates see an innovative and progressive company, they want to be a part of that, they want to be associated with them,” he added.

“It is important to CD+A because we see ourselves as being innovative in terms of our expansion into Vietnam; we believe the Vietnamese economy is regarded by many people not just inside Vietnam but elsewhere throughout the world as an economy that’s really going ahead from strength to strength. CD+A recognized that and made the strategic decision to establish a business here in 2018.”
