Deon’s path to recruiting started 20 years ago as a temp in the industry, when he was able to solve a talent issue without any training. After that experience, he fell in love with the recruiting and match-service industry. Deon’s recruiting career has taken him all over the world, allowing him to hone his skills in ways he never thought possible.
Deon’s main goal is to provide talent solutions for Korn Ferry’s clients, which translates to supporting clients with a surge in their business or helping build solutions for clients that struggle with securing and projecting their resource planning. For Deon, his focus means becoming a trusted advisor for his clients and providing whatever talent services they need.
"A big differentiator between us and our competition is that we are really poised for acceleration and growth in the industry."
“Watching the Talent Academy means literally watching the maturation process. You see this individual come in a little tentative and nervous and turn into this beautiful butterfly, with knowledge of talent solutions.”
