Aurex Group North America
Set Sights on Further Growth in 2020

Aurex Group North America is preparing for further expansion in 2020 with plans to build upon its remarkable growth over the past few years. Expansion into new markets, sectors, and geographies has underpinned the firm’s success in North America – a trend which is set to continue.

The first Aurex Group North America ofice was established in Houston in 2017 with the relocation of John McClellan from Asia and hires of Adam Skinner and David Byrne, each bringing more than a decade of North American experience and relationships. In their roles as Managing Directors, the trio has extended the Aurex Group remit across America and beyond, achieving 450% revenue growth since inception. Together, they have built a leading portfolio of clients and an expanding network of diverse talent.

““Our ability to bring non-traditional candidates to the table has been key to our success. We have delivered on dozens of mandates requiring niche or emerging skillsets, as well as servicing traditional sectors facing rapid change, such as Energy,” commented John McClellan, Managing Director and Partner,  North  America.“Working  in  fast-evolving  and dynamic markets has sharpened our agility, giving us an edge in servicing a diverse client base, ranging from hypergrowth technology start-ups to Fortune 100 corporations. It’s the driver behind demand to bring Aurex Group to new locations.”  

The North American team maintains a market-leading position across the Energy, Infrastructure and Technology recruitment sectors. Broadening its collective expertise, the team also has specialist recruitment teams servicing the Investment, Real Estate, Management Consulting, and Legal Private Practice fields.

Aurex Group has made recent senior appointments into the following organisations:

  • AmLaw 100 Law Firm
  • Global Institutional Investor
  • Global Advisory Firm – Infrastructure Debt, Infrastructure M&A
  • Infrastructure Private Equity Firm
  • Private Equity Portfolio – Financial Services, Real Estate,

  • Global Management Consulting Firm
  • Hypergrowth Cybersecurity Technology Firm
  • Pension Fund – Power and Renewables Equity
  • Private Equity Portfolio – Midstream Energy
  • Private Equity Firm – Real Estate

“In less than three years, the North American team has built a reputation as the ‘go to’ search specialist. It is not only our team that can attest to the strength of our Houston ofice, but the clients and professionals we work with across the Americas. As the first ofice to open under Aurex Group’s international expansion, we couldn’t be more proud of their trajectory and what the leadership has achieved,”commented Jared Lowe, Global Managing  Director. “We look forward to opening new doors for Aurex Group across North America in 2020.”

The Aurex Group Team is currently working on several searches and targeting new ofice expansion across North and Latin America. If you are interested in understanding more, please connect with our Aurex Group specialists below.
