HRH the Duke of York opens Harvey Nash's new global HQ in London
The Duke of York, K.G. visited Heron Tower, London on the 17th September to open the global headquarters of Harvey Nash Group; a British company which has been highly successful at growing its overseas operations.
The event was held on the 38th floor of Heron Tower, one of the City of London's most iconic buildings, and attended by over 300 of Harvey Nash's key clients and contacts.
His Royal Highness was welcomed by Albert Ellis, CEO of Harvey Nash Group, Paul Smith, executive chairman of Harvey Nash's Offshore operations and Lord Digby Jones, board adviser to Harvey Nash.
Since Harvey Nash was established in the UK almost 25 years ago, it has grown to become a leading international professional recruitment and outsourcing company with annual revenues of $1bn in sixteen countries across four continents. Its new headquarters marks a continued commitment to invest in the UK, as well as reflects the unique positioning London and the UK has in the global economy.
Albert Ellis, CEO of Harvey Nash, commented: "We are delighted that The Duke of York was able to open our new global headquarters. He is a passionate ambassador for British products and services all around the world and we have a strong record of export achievement. Our decision to locate our headquarters in London was based on the key strengths the city enjoys like no other in the world today. With access to a highly skilled pool of international talent, excellent new office facilities and leading edge technology infrastructure, London enjoys a pre-eminent position in Europe and the world. Following the greatest show on earth, London 2012, I am particularly pleased that we are open for business when Brand Britain has never been more highly regarded globally and in the new fast growing emerging markets of Asia."
