Branding & Design

Sunita Sudheesan, Practice Lead, Asia

Jasmine beat James to the punch when it came to Sunita, turning her into a headhunter in her 13th year of client management in the creative industry.

Sunita is all too familiar with the feeling of being at a career crossroads, and the itch for new experiences, having herself made the switch to talent recruitment after 13 years of honing her client management skills at renowned agencies such as BBDO, DIA Brands and Landor.

And so here she is today, building careers now instead of brands. She maintains a great relationships with her clients and candidates, earning their trust with her refreshing, straight-shooting approach. She’s been there, done it for 13 years, and tells it like it is. Her goal is simple – helping good friends find good bosses.

The same desire for new experiences drives Sunita’s passion for scuba diving. Sunita counts many unique and obscure dive spots under her lead belt, the Maldives, Fiji, Raja Ampat and Malapascua – just to name a few – where she has swum alongside whale sharks, giant barracudas and thresher sharks.
