Ariston Consultancy Limited was founded by Aubrey Lau in the early 2005 as a specialist search firm servicing both clients and candidates in the Banking industry. Deriving from a Greek word,Ariston means “The Best”. Companies strive to seek out the best candidate in their industry and candidates always look for the best suited employers. Ariston endeavours to bridge the gap in this “searching for the best” process. 

Our strategy is to focus on a selective clientele to avoid potential conflicts in conducting search assignments. Our philosophy is to be a long term recruitment partner for clients, assisting their development through different stages. Through this partnership relationship, we acquire an intimate knowledge of the culture and operation of our clients and are therefore able to source the most suitable candidates for them. 

Our strength is to recruit middle to senior level executives from VP/Associate Director level and up. Ariston appreciates talents.  Occasionally, we help junior level candidates who have high potential to find suitable employment. 

Aubrey Lau commenced her career in executive search recruitment in 1996 joining a leading publicly listed Australian firm in Hong Kong.  She initially managed senior search assignments in the Insurance and Telecommunication sectors and subsequently focuses on the Banking industry. She built her expertise in recruiting front office professionals in areas such as corporate finance, structured finance, investment banking, corporate banking, consumer banking and private equity.   

Having been operating in the Asian region for over ten years, Aubrey has established an extensive network and acquired an in-depth knowledge in the industry.  She is one of the very few search consultants in the market who has maintained her focus consistently in the region all this time.  She has gone through a number of economic cycles and has followed the movements of candidates and companies. This knowledge is very valuable in the executive search business.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Aubrey possesses fluency in English and Chinese. She moved to Canada to continue her education in marketing and was a licensed professional in the brokerage and insurance industries before returning to Hong Kong.
