What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about creating a high-performing and diverse business in which individuals are given an opportunity to fulfil their potential.
What do you enjoy about executive search?
There are many things I like. The trust that’s built between Hanover, the clients and the candidates; being able to positively impact the lives of the individuals that we work with; and having a positive impact on the growth and success of the organisations that we work with. I also really enjoy helping shape the strategy of our clients’ organisations and being able to offer valuable insights into the industry that can’t be acquired elsewhere. I like ensuring that the process of the journey is smoothly run, professional and engaged, and being able to add a personal touch to the hiring experience and adding as much value as possible to the process. Finally, I obviously like the successful outcomes!
