Year Joined:
2014

Joe completed a bachelor’s degree in International Business in England in 2006. During this course, he engaged in a one-year study placement in HR and Marketing modules at Hong Kong University.

The thirst for the international arena took his sights to South Korea where he lectured in Communications courses, and partnered with a local business to provide teaching staff to private language institutes across the country. From there an opportunity to join a global generalist recruiter in New Zealand became available, where he learned about the New Zealand Education and later IT market.

Joe now proudly works with Potentia to source outstanding IT professionals for permanent positions throughout Auckland and the wider national market.

Fun fact:
Was once a provincial Kickboxing champion in my adopted hometown of Cheongju, Korea.

On the weekend I’ll most likely be...:
On an adventure to a new eatery or to the beach.

Weirdest travel destination:
Keeseville, (Upstate) New York. Kids’ summer camps as a student, where the mountainside is beautiful and the township is straight out of a Western movie.

Weirdest food eaten:
The Korean dish of an intestine and liver soup is not as bad as it sounds.

Music on my phone:
Nina Simone, Notorious BIG, The Smiths… I love these artists and after all, variety is the spice
