Anna is one of our Partners at Emu, working across permanent, interim and contract executive search assignments in technology, digital, data and cyber.

Anna’s hard work and commitment over her 25 year career has been primarily focussed on technology-related search assignments, with her success based on critical values of honesty, collaboration, integrity and mutual respect. She’s fast become a trusted partner among her network, proving she has people’s best interests at heart.

Anna sources exceptional leaders at C-suite, EGM, GM and Head of level that can craft, drive and implement modern and transformational technology strategies and initiatives. Her creative approach to each assignment starts with brainstorming with the client what the person will need to come in and achieve for the organisation and then working backwards from there to determine what best fit might look like.

Anna is not only passionate about her role, she’s well known for making her clients’ lives easier by actively listening and being in constant communication, working out what clients do and don’t want along the way. She applies this to the many executives she works with too as they make important decisions about their future. Anna’s not one to walk away from a challenging situation and genuinely takes great pride in what she does.

I am a huge advocate for D&I, particularly with women in tech. I’m proud to play a pivotal role in enabling my clients to achieve their goals in this space. I still remember how excited I was to find my first female technology specialist in 1997!

Prior to joining Emu, Anna’s search career in Australia and overseas entailed working in senior and managerial roles across various consultancies including Talent2, Who Group, Bluefin Resources and for close to six years, she ran her own search business.

Anna graduated from the University of Manchester with an Honours degree in European Studies & German.

Anna is also trained in fitness and nutrition, so when she doesn’t have her business hat on, she’s talking about all things holistic health, spending time with her husband and two girls in one of the Mornington Peninsula's many cafes or taking part in a fitness event somewhere in Victoria.
