At the end of last week Morgan McKinley were named the 2015 Accountancy Recruitment Company of the Year at the RI Asia Awards in Tokyo.
This is testament to the hard work and dedication of a team that, despite not being the biggest Accounting and Finance team in Japan, is determined to be the best. The award is based on a lot of different criteria including quality of service, dedication, and taking a consultative rather than a “vendor” approach to everyone we do business with.
MMK specific concepts such as “Go Beyond” and “Career Partner” played a major role in helping us win (and let’s not forget the year-on-year revenue growth!).
As a leader and manager, there is no better feeling than being inspired by the people you are responsible for. I have watched my team grow in size, confidence and experience but stay true to themselves and never lose that necessary piece of humility that keeps us grounded and “real”.
Along the journey we have hit a number of historic milestones, including a global initiative which began as a great idea by one of our Associate Consultants and is now being rolled out across the MMK world.
We have also hit quite a few obstacles and speed-bumps but have always managed to go around, over or through to the other side.

The last 2.5 years have taught me many things; the importance of having values and a vision that everyone can easily understand and get behind, the value of being an underdog and how it can drive you to be more resourceful, and of course the mindset of recovering from every setback and coming back stronger and better.
Looking ahead to 2016, I am very positive about what we can achieve and I look forward to taking it to the next level!
