Language Connect looks east with Singapore office opening and new executive appointment
Following a growth in demand for Language Connect’s services in the Asia Pacific region, Baxter Tan has been appointed in the role of Executive Director to build the Language Connect offering in Asia, from a new regional base in Singapore.
Baxter joins us from FocusVision, a market research technology company, where he has worked for the last 4 years, most recently in the role of Commercial Director and Head of the Asia Pacific region.
