Advaita has her roots in academic research – having worked at the HSRC while completing her Masters – but what really excites her is engaging with real live human beings daily. And it shows. Wise insights bubble up and she articulates them with easy eloquence, balancing sharp intellect and dry wit.
Before joining Jack Hammer, she lived and worked in the UK, US and Singapore. She was a knowledge manager at a boutique executive search firm in London, and then a freelance researcher focusing on the consumer goods sector.
She currently heads operations and performance improvement at Jack Hammer, including the full research function and technology platforms – amongst the many other moving parts of what has now become Africa’s largest executive search boutique.
