"A company's most important asset isn't product, supply chain systems, or technology. It is creative capital. Simply put, an arsenal of creative thinkers whose ideas can be turned into valuable products and services.  Creative employees pioneer innovation and power economic growth. If you want your company to succeed you must research and choose wisely." 

People Are Your Greatest Asset

How do you choose wisely?

Know what "role specific" skills are fundamental to success.
Apply a realistic assessment of your priorities.
Include culture as a significant consideration.

To ensure your satisfaction all eXenet candidates are profiled and qualified by experienced senior executives. 

To ensure the success of your recruitment process, your team and your methodology must allow for a realistic understanding and assessment of all issues, priorities and company deliberations. These may include -
  • P&L Management
  • Supply Chain Planning
  • Demand Planning
  • Succession Planning
  • Inventory Control
  • Technology
  • Corporate Construct
  • Lean / Six Sigma
  • Culture

Remember, it is much more important to recruit the right person with the ability to learn and improve, than the wrong person with all the skills.


You must ensure that your process -

Appropriately communicates the skill set and commitment you require.
Accurately promotes your business and the benefits it will provide.
Delivers you candidates and contract personnel with appropriate skills, experience and cultural fit.
Please contact us or call 02.9487.4442 if you feel we can offer advice or assistance.

Effective recruitment is ultimately the lifeblood of every organisation.

Professional Human Resource skills are fundamental to the recruitment process for both permanent and contract personnel. However so too is the ability of experienced management to effectively communicate their requirements and participate in the procurement process. It is a process of delegation not abdication.

Recruiter Profiles

All eXenet candidates and contract personnel are chosen with great attention to both skills and cultural fit, and every detail is overseen by successful industry professionals. Please view the credentials of our Recruiters below and do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.

Finance & Commerce Andrew Pondekas

Andrew has enjoyed an exceptional career both as a senior financial executive and a commercial advisor to corporations with complex value propositions. He has held senior roles in the corporate sector with organisations such as Brambles, Qantas and QBE Insurance, and of late has used his experience to benefit a range of businesses in the SME arena. 

His advice and counsel is in constant demand when assessing job specifications and required skills, and he is an integral part of eXenet’s operational, strategic, and financial planning.

General Management / Manufacturing / Lean & Six Sigma Ian Chew
Ian has a notable and successful background of achievement in senior management. Prior to joining eXenet he was relocated from the UK to assume responsibility for the Australian operations of David Brown, an internationally recognised global leader in industrial gearing solutions and services. In addition to the generic skills of a senior executive, Ian has acquired high levels of accreditation in Lean and Six Sigma that provide him with excellent credentials as a business strategist and Process Improvement professional. All of these experiences combine to create an exceptionally valuable set of tools with which eXenet can add significant value to the needs of our clients.
Supply Chain / Leadership & Culture Kevin Daly
Kevin has enjoyed a 30 year career in the establishment and operation of successful Logistics and Human Resource businesses and eXenet is his most recent endeavour. eXenet is a company created to provide and benefit from the skills of experienced senior executives from a wide range of industry, commerce and corporate exposure. These executives now form the basis for eXenet’s ability to genuinely understand both the needs of its clients, and the skills of required personnel. Something that translates to an identifiable competitive advantage for our valued clientele.
Executive Management / Corporate Construct Norm Fricker
Norm completed an exceptional executive career in 1999 when he retired from a successful term on the Management Board of Qantas Airways where he played a major role in the restructuring of the company’s supply chain processes following "privatisation" in 1995. Prior to his Qantas engagement Norm spent 24 years in Brambles Industries where he served as an Executive Director with responsibilities for businesses in Australia and Europe. He is a skilled corporate leader and strategist. As a Director of eXenet his primary objective is to establish a business that will allow senior executives to "put back" into business what they have learned during their careers. His guidance and mentoring is an invaluable tool in eXenet’s interpretation of both client and candidate requirements.
Supply Chain / Company Performance Neil Gregory
As a senior executive Neil has a highly successful track record of identifying areas of improvement, establishing required construct, process and discipline, and driving successfully for greatly improved profit and performance. His ability to identify meaningful supply chain and commercial initiatives and oversee their implementation has paved the way for many clients to achieve significant competitive advantage. And for eXenet this translates into an excellent ability to interpret and understand what is required and recruit appropriate contract and permanent personnel.
Human Resource / Leadership & Culture John Gibney
John is our "go to" man for assessment and profiling of executive roles. He is an organisational consultant, researcher, and psychotherapist who has worked on leadership, research, joint venture and strategic development programs in the USA, China, PNG, Indonesia, Singapore, UK and Europe. During this time he achieved outstanding success in taking his clinical, cross-cultural and organisational experience into the workplace of major Banking, Mining, Insurance, IT, Telecom, Supply Chain and Manufacturing organisations. He is possibly our most important link in ensuring an applicants suitability and our clients’ satisfaction.
Remuneration / Reward / Governance Jeff Smith
Jeff has enjoyed a successful major corporate career in producing commercial and practical HR Reward solutions to a significant range of companies in various industries, including financial services, energy, industrials and property groups.

He provides valuable oversight to eXenet’s recruitment, contracting, and consulting services.
Health Greg Bezuidenhout
Greg has enjoyed a significantly successful career, both as a senior corporate executive with Siemens, where he rose to the position of Divisional Managing Director, and more recently as an expert advisor to the Health sector, where he has been involved at the forefront of major initiatives. These include the new Macquarie teaching hospital, the Australian School of Advanced Medicine, and the current planning and construction of the state’s most recent hospital addition at Frenchs Forest in Sydney’s north. Together with his Senior Executive experience, Greg brings a genuine understanding of the requirements of the Health Sector to eXenet’s Human Resource capability.
