KSearch Asia launches new practice area in 2014

On its 15th year of operations, KSearch Asia Consulting Inc. is launching its D-Suite Services, a new functional practice area, in January 2014. KSearch is one of the leading executive search firms in the Philippines.


KSearch’s D-Suite Services consist of Director Recruitment and Orientation of executive and non-executive Directors; Board Chairman Search for executive and non-executive Chairmen; Director Assessment and Development on overall Board effectiveness, Board-Management relationship, and shareholder communication and accountability; as well as Board Advisory on composition, compensation, culture, dynamics, processes, reporting and agenda as well as succession planning, boardroom trends, governance best practices, and pre-IPO Board development.


 Leading the D-Suite Services Practice Team are KSearch President and Managing Director Manny Guillermo and Senior Advisor Albert Gamboa. A key resource person in this endeavor is KSearch Chairman Mario Mananghaya, whose last major role was being Chairman and Managing Partner of KPMG Laya Mananghaya & Co. until his retirement in 2007. A Certified Public Accountant who took post-graduate studies at Harvard Business School and the Asian Institute of Management, Mr. Mananghaya retired as Head of Audit Practice at SGV &Co. (former Arthur Andersen & Co.) prior to heading KPMG. Aside from being Chairman of KSearch, he holds a similar strategic role for a few companies engaged in management consulting, cloud computing, pharmaceuticals, and business process outsourcing.


Mr. Guillermo is a retired global partner of Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting) where he headed the Change Management Services Division in Lagos, Nigeria. As Consulting Partner of SGV & Co., his engagements were concentrated on World Bank and Asian Development Bank-funded projects in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Bangladesh and Myanmar, among others. His 25-year experience as an expatriate executive included 10 years as General Manager and Board Director of a major consumer finance company in Thailand. An alumnus of De La Salle University and Harvard Business School’s Program for Management Development, he has wide experience in general, project and change management.


Joining these seasoned top executives is Mr. Gamboa, an investment banker turned management consultant who had previous executive stints with United Overseas Bank Group of Singapore and Urbancorp Securities Inc. before becoming Board Director of several small and medium enterprises. An MBA graduate of UP-Diliman with an Economics degree from Ateneo de Manila University, he obtained his basic education from La Salle Bacolod. Currently he writes a column for BusinessWorld newspaper and has co-authored seven coffee-table books.


The D-Suite Services will complement other functional and industry practice areas where KSearch has built a strong track record in fulfilling the executive requirements of its clients belonging to various business sectors, including finance and accounting, information technology, banking, human resources, marketing and sales, and business process outsourcing.
