Anneke Ferreira, the Managing Partner of Ferreira & Associates International Executive Search, has seventeen years’ experience in executive search and recruitment. Fluent in both English and Afrikaans, Anneke holds a BCom Marketing degree from the University of Pretoria (SA), an Advanced Programme in Executive Search and Leadership Consulting from Cornell University (USA), a MBA from Henley Business School at the University of Reading (UK) and is a certified Enneagram coach (SA).  In 2019 she was invited to speak at the Integral African Conference on “C-Suite leadership evolution in the 4th Industrial revolution” in Johannesburg. In 2015 Anneke was honoured by the AESC with the Future of the Profession Award at the Global Annual Executive Search and Leadership Consulting Industry Awards held by the AESC in New York. In 2013 she was a speaker at the 2013 World Executive Search Congress held in Las Vegas to discuss growth and executive search in emerging markets. During her career, she has accomplished many executive searches at C-level and successfully completed over 350 executive search and recruitment assignments, mainly in the mining, manufacturing, information technology, financial, consulting and telecommunications sectors. In her previous firm, she established a new Africa and Emerging Markets Division, opening doors to international business opportunities which earned her an award. Her long career as a well-regarded, accomplished search professional for multinational firms positions her to assist global companies with talent searches and starting up in new markets.  “This is more than a career for me,” says Anneke. “I have a real passion for successfully completing top influential assignments and building leadership teams that achieve measurable results for my clients while offering life-enhancing opportunities to C-Suite leaders.”
