Advaita Naidoo

MD Africa
BA; BSoc Sci (Hons) Psychology; MA (Psychological Research)

Advaita is the MD, Africa of Jack Hammer Global

While completing her Masters in Research Psychology, she embarked on a brief but successful career in academia, seeing her work published internationally and being recognised as a meaningful contributor in several studies. But there was a cognitive itch that pure research just couldn’t scratch, which was to see the desk-work translated into commercial outcomes. So, she packed away her journals and threw herself into the world of executive search, where finding a great leader can impact the corporate and NPO landscapes in unexpected ways.

As MD of Jack Hammer’s Africa business, Advaita manages the end-to-end business activities that make Africa’s largest boutique search firm the undisputed success it is. While also juggling the challenges that come with having three boys in primary school.

She brings a unique international outlook to the business, having lived on four continents and covered more than a quarter of the globe in her travels. Her natural commercial acumen and insights gleaned from ongoing learning have helped companies make sound business decisions. And her wisdom comes packaged with sharp intellect and dry wit, making any engagement with her a mentally stimulating interaction!
