Apex establishes presence in Korea
Apex has expanded its presence in Asia with the launch of its Korean business.
The Korean foothold will add to Apex’s existing regional presence in China, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.
Simon Hurst will advise on the office launch as a non-executive director. He joined Apex in August 2023 and has two decades of experience working as managing director at Goldman Sachs Korea. Prior to that, he spent 11 years at J.P. Morgan in various senior operational and finance roles across Asia.
Peter Hughes, founder and CEO of Apex, commented in a statement: “We are proud to announce our continued geographic expansion with the launch of our Korea business as we continue to evolve our service offering and support our clients globally.”
Amid a string of recent transactions, one example of an acquisition in Asia includes Apex’s consolidation with Japanese corporate services provider Axess Accounting Office in July 2023.
