Healthcare has a distinct language, culture, and mindset all its own. Auston Chan was attracted to this reality early on, and he studied health communication as a focus area while earning his B.A. in marketing and management. Shifting into recruiting for medical device and diagnostics companies was a natural next step for his career.
With a fully bilingual and tricultural background, Auston has a talent for connecting leaders and visionaries around the world. He now works with Saachi Partners in Tokyo, Japan, but he has also lived and worked across New Zealand, Canada, and Hong Kong. He is passionate about helping all of his clients expand and thrive in global marketplaces with talented teams.
Auston takes a holistic approach to problem solving, just like a healthcare provider would. Triage the situation – what’s the top priority? Delegate the team – what are everyone’s strengths? By looking beyond surface-level symptoms, he is able to understand what’s really being asked and deliver targeted solutions. His analytical, logical outlook turns challenges into opportunities. That mindset has made him highly sought after recruiter in healthcare.
Today, Auston is a trusted partner and ally for many healthcare professionals in Japan and Asia Pacific. Once he has the right candidate and position in mind, Auston doesn’t only diagnose interviewing obstacles, he eliminates them.
