Sage Talent, Inc., a leading Bay Area-based sourcing and recruiting firm, has announced its acquisition of Nexus Partners, a Bay Area/Shanghai-based boutique executive search, technical recruitment and leadership advisory firm.
“This a major move for Nexus Partners,” said Kenneth Xu, principal at Nexus Partners. “Leveraging Sage’s impeccable reputation in the U.S. and its proven analytical capabilities in recruitment, this will bring enormous benefits to our clients by gaining access to a much larger candidate pool with greater efficiency. Additionally, we’re looking forward to utilizing our search skills to broaden Sage’s industry reach.”
Xu brings with him an ideal background to serve Sage’s current global recruiting efforts. He previously was on the pioneering team to build the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), the leading international business school in Asia and ranked top 25 worldwide. He also has over 18 years of executive search experience working for firms like Russell Reynolds, Korn Ferry, DHR and others in the Asia region.
“With the merger of Nexus Partners, we will be able to reach new heights both here in the U.S. and internationally,” said Paul Grewal, CEO of Sage Talent. “The industries that Kenneth and Nexus Partners focus on, including technology, life sciences, automotive and manufacturing, will further build on our overall recruiting objective to provide high-caliber executives and talent to clients in these areas.”
