Director and Co-Founder
A profoundly experienced executive recruiter with vast experience in the Consumer sectors, Daniel Tran is passionate about helping both clients and candidates find mutually perfect matches. Executing searches with an all round approach, he strives to oversee the matching and grooming stages of the placements, forging seamless bonds between both parties through post-placement developmental support.
With an extensive reach in Asia and beyond, Daniel specializes in both national and international searches for leading consumer companies across Asia Pacific. His proven track record has seen him recruit senior executives for both Fortune 500 companies and start-up operations in functional leadership roles (CEO, CFO, CHRO, COO). He has also conducted several major search mandates spanning the Apparel, FMCG and hard line goods sectors throughout his career.
Daniel was born in Vietnam and brought up in Paris, France, where he received education in fashion design and developed a strong career in consumer product sourcing, which he continued following relocation to Hong Kong in 2000. After spending 15+ years in the industry, he took a career detour to focus on executive searches, having single-handedly built up a Retail, Health and Beauty Practice during his tenure at People Search before joining Derwent’s Consumer Practice team.
Daniel co-founded The Office Limited in 2016 to continue the execution of a wide variety of traditional executive searches, while building an ecosystem of industry experts, corporate coaches, and development professionals who support candidates as they grow to become more effective leaders. The ultimate beneficiaries include the corporates themselves, as evidenced by the long list of global brand names who are The Office’s repeat clients, as well as the candidates who enthusiastically vouch for their boutique approach.
On a personal level, Daniel is a big fan of tennis and could hardly resist a game with his friends whenever opportunities arise. He is always on his quest to health and wellness, and would always go all the way to ensure the wellbeing of people around him, to inspire and be inspired by them.
