UniQuest, US. UniQuest has appointed Andy Gruber as President of its North American division. Andy will lead the development of UniQuest’s international student recruitment service in the United States. This senior appointment is part of a series of investments the company has made to develop its services globally. Andy was previously with Hobsons for more than 17 years. As political and financial pressures, coupled with increased global competition, put a strain on international recruitment in the US, UniQuest has expanded in the US after recognising an opportunity for higher education institutions to maximise conversion of prospective international students already in the pipeline.
