Despite the fact that there is a huge demand for top leaders in South Africa who boast the ‘full package’, the pool of suitably qualified and experienced C-suite executives is relatively small, not least because the leadership skills-set of the future is more expansive than ever, a leadership expert says.
“Saenger Associates had the clout and access to the high level position I wanted in the company. I’ve dealt with other search firms but Saenger has more of a program to offer. They are finer tuned in qualifying the candidate and they seem to know more about how to support the company.

Other companies seem to just fill jobs, looking only at a candidate’s past experience and education, but Saenger goes the extra mile to find the perfect social blend of cultural and interpersonal traits as well. I didn’t realize their motto was “Matching Great Executives with Great Companies” but it seems to fit. My experience was definitely great.”
