I’m inspired by new, challenging and changing environments and passionately believe in achieving sustainable business success through the engagement, coaching and development of people. I was fortunate in my early career with companies like ICI, Zeneca, Astra Zeneca and Syngenta to be involved in several de-merger, merger and change and efficiency projects which enabled me to build broad experience and a skill to work across functional and cultural boundaries with managers to develop high performance teams in the UK, Europe, Africa, North and South America and Asia.
Since joining graylink in 2004 I’ve utilised many of those skills and get a great buzz out of enabling organisations to develop their strategies, articulate their employment brands, deploy recruitment software and build in-house capability to attract and recruit the right fit Talent. I’ve co-founded business in all the aforementioned areas and have been lucky enough to have met and worked closely with great people from many of the JSE’s top 50 companies across Africa and other regions.
Outside of work I’ve been highly active as a leader in my local community and am an enthusiastic sportsman participating in cycling, windsurfing, kite surfing, tennis, horse riding, skiing and snow boarding.
