Rob Green, CEO

To date, we have successfully completed new market entry projects in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Namibia, Botswana, Ghana, Hong Kong, Singapore, and China. Our worldwide network of contacts, many years experience working in the world's foremost economies, extensive research function, and on-ground support in Asia, Africa, and Europe puts us in the ideal position to guide clients into new markets - from feasibility studies to recruitment. 

We work with a team of developers to pave the way for an evidence-based, data-informed recruitment experience. Our proprietary data science platform is core to all our solutions and allows us to not only help clients make more accurate recruitment decisions and better retain staff but also match each candidate with a more fulfilling career path.

GRM's competitive edge lies in our industry knowledge and market mapping and research functions. Our professionally qualified legal and finance consultants are ex-practitioners that have worked in and understand the challenges of the industries they now serve. Through a combination of traditional methods and our proprietary people analytics platform, we offer our clients market-leading solutions in the board advisory, selection, leadership development, and organisational structuring spaces across the African continent. At GRM we are constantly striving to bring our clients’ innovative solutions to their human, business operational, and strategic needs.

"Rob and his team were hired to help us fill a director level position. As the position had been open for some time, we felt we might need to compromise. GRM found us a number of candidates within a short period of time and identified the person they thought met our criteria most exactly. We hired the candidate and we have been delighted by the director's performance. We ended up with no compromise and an excellent hire. I am very pleased to recommend GRM for even the most difficult searches."
