"The FCCS was the most efficient way to help organize our business study in Singapore. They fully understood our strategy, they helped identify the right players for us to meet, they approached them to prepare our meetings and finally introduced us at every meeting we had.
In quite a short period we managed to meet with the relevant targets: clusters, academic players, governmental institutions, incubators and innovative start-ups.
We truly enjoyed the high professional, flexible, business oriented approach they offered, which made our business study highly valuable."
Mr Denis Tersen, Paris Region Economic Development Agency
"Although not specialised in this specific sector, the FCCS business development team quickly implemented this mission within the schedule constraints that we imposed.
In less than two months, the FCCS Business Development team was able to set up appointments with 15 highly-qualified contacts, from potential clients (associations, foundations, and universities), to possible partners (marketing / communication companies) and to industry representatives (including public officials).
The quality of appointments and the efficiency in the organisation allowed us to obtain a very clear idea of the level of professionalism in the sector and expectations of the different targets we met in three days.
This mission was then a great success for our company and we might work again with the FCCS in the near future."
Mr Frédéric Fournier, Optimus
"Petroval decided end of 2010 to create an Affiliate Company in Singapore to better serve our Asian current clients and to increase our activities in the Asia-Pacific area.
From our first visit in Singapore in November 2009 up to now, we had a full and very efficient support from the FCCS team, for the incorporation of our company in Singapore, and for the application for our first Employment Passes. We always had good and practical advices, given with a smile. What else could we expect!"
Mr Jean-Pierre Sassolas, Petroval.
"Bobbies has decided to go after the Asiatic market and, as a first step, turned to the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore to explore the potential in Singapore.
The business support team prepared and arranged two full days of meetings with retailers and distributors. The selection was very professional and the presence and assistance of one representative from the FCCS during these 12 meetings was extremely helpful.
Hopefully, Bobbies will soon be sold in Singapore."
Alexis Maugey, co-founder, Bobbies.
“As we are planning to open an office in Singapore, we first contacted the FCCS in order to test the Singaporean market for one of our activity; the engineering maintenance.
Thanks to the business support department of the FCCS, we had 9 business meetings with private companies and a governmental agency (A*Star).
Through these meetings, we had collected a lot of precious information and several opportunities from Singaporean companies as well as French companies based in Singapore. All this information will allow us to build our business plan and help us decide whether we should open a branch in Singapore.
I would like to thank again the team of the FCCS for their dynamism, flexibility, and professionalism!"
Mr Philippe Storez, Altep Ingenierie.
“Recently set up in Singapore, we needed some help for better understanding of the Asian market to launch our business and promote our new offer. So we chose the FCCS to carry out this prospective mission to create buzz and network with the French community. We are very satisfied with the mission conducted: the FCCS understood our needs and proposed appropriate solutions to them. This mission was definitely worthwhile.”
Michael Abitbol, Managing Director, Makheia Asia.
“We value our partnership with the FCCS, as their Business Support department allowed us to set up our structure in a timely and efficient way, without interrupting the momentum of our activities”.
Edouard Goetgheluck, Asia Pacific Director, Scientx.
“This 3-day mission organised for us was a great success. We would like to thank the Grex and the FCCS for their professionalism. Just 3 words to qualify this mission: “celerity, efficiency, quality.”
Thierry Bissuel, Managing Director, Cabrilog.
“The FCCS understood our needs, identified good contacts and made relevant appointments. Indeed, the full range of companies we met during our stay Singapore will allow us to choose the right partners. The mission was worthwhile as we are currently in negotiation with some of these companies”.
Firas Mohamed, CEO Infiniscale.
"We were looking for bi-cultural candidates: Asians with a good knowledge of France or French nationals with a solid experience in Asia. The specificity of this selection criteria is usually not well understood by local Employment Agencies. FCCS Recruitment service has supported us in this direction thanks to its adequate network."
Quoc Hang NGO, Human Resource Manager, Alstom Transport
"Recruitment in the banking sector always implies a large degree of confidentiality. CIC Singapore is happy to testify that FCCS Recruitment Service has demonstrated that, for the recruitment of a French Senior Executive, beyond the professionalism and the level of services expected from a Commercial Employment Agency, it has been able to guarantee the specific discretion required in this area. The quality of service is the reason why we have selected FCCS for this recruitment."
Jean-Luc ANGLADA, Regional General Manager Asia Pacific, CIC
"Our area of expertise is a very technical branch of electricity where the search for staff implies the targeting of specific skills. On this matter, I have been fully satisfied by the attention that FCCS has granted to our recruitment. After only two meetings, our needs have been well determined and interesting local candidates have been presented to us in a short delay. I have also appreciated the feedback and advice provided by FCCS staff to prepare the interviews and to follow-up until recruitment completion."
Laurent PERROTIN, Commercial Director, Basler Electric Company Singapore
