I am responsible for Peoplecorp’s Executive Interim Management business. I recruit Executive level HR generalists and specialists for interim or project-based roles within a range of sectors including financial services, commerce & industry, professional services and government.
CAREER & EXPERTISE:
I am an executive recruitment expert with a strong foundation of senior level talent attraction and engagement strategies having worked in both executive search firms and corporate talent acquisition.
Before joining Peoplecorp in 2019, I was Head of Talent Acquisition for Diligent, a successful high-growth SaaS company headquartered in New York, with major international hubs in Sydney, Christchurch, London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Washington DC, Munich and Amsterdam.
Previously I was an Executive Search recruiter for 3 years with top-tier global firm Korn Ferry, recruiting C-Suite and executive leadership roles for clients in the financial services, fintech and payments sectors in the US. Before this, I spent 10+ years recruiting corporate and financial services legal professionals in Sydney and London.
I have worked closely with C-suite/Executive/Director level HR and business stakeholders and colleagues over the last 10+ years. I believe in fostering a strong relationship between HR, the business and recruitment to ensure strategic and tactical alignment on every search. Having a communal understanding of critical business drivers, strategy, cultural dynamics and technical requirements of each role in partnership with HR and the business is essential.
Scottish/British by birth but Australian in spirit and naturalisation; I lived here for many years previously and have recently returned from New York, knowing that I wanted my 2 young daughters to grow up in Sydney. My wife was recently an HR leader with Bloomberg in NYC, so we have strong industry connections in the family! We spend our weekends with the kids relishing the time we can spend at the beach or coastal areas, after several years in the concrete mad house of New York.
I love watching sports such as football, rugby, tennis – or any major sporting event which is worth getting excited about. I’m looking forward to taking the girls to games in Sydney when they are old enough.
