San-Marie Barnard

Partner and Senior Principal: Executive Search
BA (Hons); Dip Business Management

San-Marie brings a global approach to executive search, with more than twelve years’ experience leading executive and C-level recruitment projects in a range of industry sectors across Sub-Saharan Africa, the USA, South America and MENA.

With her broad range of skills, San-Marie leads Jack Hammer’s research teams on multi-country search projects, and also plays a hybrid role in both client partnering and candidate-facing capacities.

Her rather eclectic industry expertise ranges from Ed-tech, Fintech and digital payments, to Media-tech and Agri-Industrial. Feel free to pick her brain on these…and more!

She is known for her direct approach, asking the hard questions and cutting to the chase – which is what delivers exceptional results for her clients. For San-Marie, success is based on persistence, not luck. The words most often used by clients and candidates to describe her are ‘extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and tenacious.’

San-Marie is an avid traveller! This has created broad personal and professional networks to draw on globally and leaves her with wanderlust and admiration for the beautiful planet we live on.
