David James PHOTO
President of Business Strategies International

David James

Educated at Harvard, Mr. James is an international business executive, author, consultant and lawyer with broad experience, especially relating to the Asia-Pacific region. He is the author of three books about doing business in Asia and of various articles and reports on legal and business subjects.

Alariss leverages its network of U.S. university relationships to identify PostDoc and PhD talent interested in academic positions at global universities.

Emerging market employers often lack talent acquisition networks in the United States. Alariss, headquartered in San Francisco with branch offices around the world, serves as a bridge by leveraging big data to match talented individuals with overseas organizations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Instead of “reverse brain drain,” it might be more accurate to frame this new phenomenon as “global brain circulation.” Talent can be born in one country, study in another, and then live and work in an entirely different one.
