NEW YORK, NY, April 4, 2022ZRG, a rapidly growing global talent advisory firm, today announced its expansion into the Australian market with the arrival of two new Managing Directors.

The firm added David Scambler, based in Sydney, and Garreth Ball, based in Brisbane. Both bring extensive backgrounds in search and talent advisory as well as an on-the-ground knowledge of the Australian business landscape.

Scambler’s specialist expertise within financial services across banking, asset management, and infrastructure will bolster the company’s Financial Services and Industrial practices. Ball’s in-depth industrial experience, specifically within Transport, Logistics, and Supply Chain, will further enhance ZRG’s Industrial proposition in the region. His extensive knowledge and connections across supply chain and procurement will add to ZRG’s growing supply chain practice, which includes the company’s recent acquisition of London-based Walter James.

“Being a global firm means you need to be able to deliver insights to clients around their strategic talent needs through a global lens,” said Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG. “It means that we have specialists who truly understand the needs of our clients in every country where those clients do business. Adding an Australian presence to our Asian operations means that we have deeper resources for our clients throughout the Pacific Rim.”

Scambler noted: “I am really excited to join ZRG. The innovative and contemporary approach the firm brings to clients through the leveraging of AI and data analytics makes the sourcing of talent more robust, timely and thorough.

“ZRG’s unique technology and data driven process is a huge value add for clients, when used in conjunction with the traditional subjective assessment approach,” Ball added. “It’s a much-needed disruption to help assess talent capability accurately, in the talent acquisition landscape.”
