LONDON--Oskar Yasar has departed his role as executive director of communications recruitment consultancy VMA International.

Yasar, who joined VMA nine years ago, is thought to be planning his own recruitment firm, focusing on corporate communications, investor relations and marketing communications.

Since joining VMA from Citigate Dewe Rogerson, Yasar helped grow the consultancy from a seven-person internation to an international business with seven offices and 55 staff, setting up the investor relations and search offerings, and leading its international presence.

 Yasar declined to comment. 

"Oskar has left after nine years with VMA Group where he helped grow the business from seven people in London to 55 internationally," said VMA Group MD Claire Tuffin.

"He is now looking at a new career opportunity which he will be in a position to announce in the next month or so. He was a valued member of the team and we wish him well. "
