It all started in 2012 when 6 entrepreneurial top recruitment leaders in Greater China came together to launch Cornerstone Global Partners.

As every building requires a cornerstone, we believe the cornerstone of every great company is the people.

With Asia experiencing the largest talent gap in the world, we are driven to provide the most comprehensive candidate-centric recruitment solutions in the region and to attract the top recruitment consultants and leaders to the firm. This drive and entrepreneurial spirit has led the company to be the fastest growing firm in the region with over 120 team members and a track record of over 3000 successful placements during the last several years.
