Local expertise and global reach help professionals learn and develop Serving Australia from Australia
Sydney, Australia, April 7, 2014 — Gerson Lehrman Group, Inc. (GLG) today announced a new, expanded Sydney office, marking the firm’s long-term commitment to Australia. GLG, the world’s largest membership for professional learning and expertise, has charted double-digit growth in Australia. The new location at Domain House keeps GLG in Sydney’s central business district and expands the firm’s local footprint.
“Our mission is to transform the way the world’s top professionals share expertise and learn. Australia is a crucial and sophisticated global market, which means the professional learning needs are significant,” said GLG President and CEO Alexander Saint-Amand. “We’re excited about our ongoing investment in Australia, and our future here.”
“Australia’s business community has relied on GLG and the value we bring to professionals every day,” said Charlie Ross, GLG Head of Business Development in Sydney. “Our breadth, depth, compliance framework, and loyalty to customers stand out in this market.” Ross joined the Australia business in 2010 and has led the firm’s growth in the world’s fourth largest market by assets under management.
Cassie Jensen, GLG Head of Research in Sydney, added, “We’re proud of the work we do here. GLG is the only global firm of its kind serving Australia from Australia, and our presence here is critical to understanding our clients’ needs.”
GLG was founded in 1998 to serve professionals who needed perspective that couldn’t be found in one-size-fits-all industry reports. It began connecting its clients with smart people who had firsthand expertise or operational experience. Today GLG serves the world’s leading investors, entrepreneurs, corporations, consulting firms, and nonprofits. Its professional members include 375,000 policy specialists, academics, engineers, former C-level managers, and professional leaders.
