Business has become the most influential institution of our time, impacting every aspect of society. By helping our clients find and develop great leaders, we are making the world better, organization by organization.

Elaine joined the firm in 2000 and spent the first nine years in the London office developing the Private Equity Practice in Europe. She moved to Singapore to lead the office there as Managing Partner until 2016. She was also a member of the firm’s Global Executive Committee for eight years. Before joining the firm, Elaine helped to lead an industry change program while at Global Freight Exchange, the world’s first Internet-based global marketplace for air cargo. Prior to that, she was Executive Director with Goldman Sachs in the European Equities Division, based in London. Earlier, she was a Consultant with Monitor Company, working across Europe with clients in diverse sectors. She started her career with the Singapore Economic Development Board, where she was at the center of early regionalization work, helping Singapore companies develop their presence in Indochina and Myanmar in the early 1990s.

Elaine’s first passion was the Theatre, and she has a BA with Honours in English and Drama from the University of Kent and an MBA from INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. Education is a big area of interest for Elaine and where most of her community work is centered. She is a member of the Industry Advisory Board of NUS’s School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE), after serving nine years on the Board of Trustees of the National University of Singapore.

Elaine’s other focus in her community work is in the area of leadership and workforce development in Singapore. She sat on the Board of Workforce Singapore, and is on the Advisory Board of Women’s Forum Singapore. She sits on the board of The Majurity Trust, a philanthropic foundation, and chairs their Tangent Initiative.
