Karen Teo

  • Position: Managing Director

​Hello, my name is Karen and I am the Managing Director of LMA. Having more than 17 years of experience in the recruitment industry, I have had the privilege of managing various recruitment models, including permanent placements, contract staffing, and the dynamic managed service model. Throughout my career, I have witnessed the transformative power of connecting talented individuals with the right organizations. It is this passion for creating meaningful connections that has driven me every step of the way.

As I reflect on my journey, I am reminded of the immense impact we can make on people's lives. Recruitment is not just about filling positions, it is about being curious of people’s aspirations, unlocking potential, and helping individuals find their true calling. Each one of us in this industry plays a crucial role in shaping careers and shaping the future of organisations - It is an immense responsibility, but it is also a real privilege. I firmly believe in being solutions-oriented. Challenges and obstacles are inevitable, but it is in those moments that our true potential shines through growth, innovation, and learning. But above all, I am a people-oriented leader. I believe that our greatest strength lies in the incredible talents and diversity within our team. Each individual brings a unique perspective, skill set, and experience that contributes to our collective success. I am committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels valued, heard, and supported. Together, we can all create a culture of collaboration, respect, and trust, where we can all thrive both personally and professionally.

Beyond my professional background some of my greatest passions are snowboarding, the outdoors and of course enjoying quality time with my loved ones.
