The Group’s growth started in China in 2006 followed by Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, and India. RGF’s presence in Asia was strengthened by the acquisition of Bó Lè Associates in 2013. Today, the company operates in 26 cities in eleven countries and markets across Asia.

Based in Manila, RGF Executive Search Philippines, Inc. (formerly Bó Lè Associates Philippines, Inc.) began operations in 2000.

Offerings include retained and contingency executive recruitment as well as talent market mapping services. Our brand today has a strong reputation due to our long-term partnerships based on Integrity, Respect, Accountability and Quality’, says Barcelona –Benitez.

‘We encourage our employees to be proactive when reaching out to new clients and we take our time in order to make the right decisions’.

RGF Executive Search Philippines has established a fresh approach to doing business with education at the heart of the company’s engagement with clients.

‘We educate our clients regarding the options available to them as we want to provide them with excellent talent and deliver solutions to them which meet their demands. Through the work of the Philippine Association of Executive Search Professionals, transparency and professionalism is being strengthened across the industry. The combination of Bó Lè as a legacy brand and RGF as a dynamic and forward looking brand is a successful combination for us in the Philippines market. We have succeeded in major sectors such as the fast moving consumer goods, pharmaceutical, industrial, banking, BPO, retail and ecommerce/digital marketing which is an emerging sector we are actively pursuing now.
