We design bold, tailored people solutions to deliver value across an entire organisation.

Perhaps we're your outsourced HR manager or delivering your research based executive search and recruitment. Perhaps it's your talent assessment, coaching or outplacement. Maybe we're working to develop your leadership team, or it's a combination of all these. Whatever we do, we design organisation specific solutions  to meet your people challenges and needs. 


And we have enormous fun doing it.


With over 40 years industry experience, our team of highly skilled consultants not only share a passion for the industry and a great depth of experience, but know that by working together, we unlock solutions others haven’t seen or thought possible.


Metropolitan or regional, we've got you covered worldwide

For nearly 40 years we've been working with both city and country based clients around the world. As a highly experienced and trusted service provider regionally, we are proud of our in-depth understanding of regional companies, what their ideal team looks like and the broader cultural piece around living and working regionally.


Public or private, small, medium or large, we've done it all

Our clients are as diverse in size as they are in industry. We work with a lot of the big hitters around the world, much smaller family businesses and just about everyone in between. And while they're all vastly different, understandably when it comes to people challenges and needs, there are a lot of similarities. This breadth of experience and knowledge allows us to truly tailor our solutions to each individual client's needs. One thing they all do have in common is their commitment to their people, and being bold in their approach to their most important asset. Us too!

Our experienced team really know their stuff



Lyn is a true and proven Practice Manager who draws on her vast experience across different industries and business sizes.


With a knack for setting up effective systems, juggling multiple priorities and remembering things others forgot, Lyn truly is at the heart of our business - 

a heart she identifies as a working environment of honesty, transparency, quality outcomes and going the extra mile in delighting a client.  

An avid traveller, Lyn has seen much of the world and commits to seeing more and not visiting the same place twice.



Robin’s 40 years of local and international experience in executive search and senior level recruitment consistently reinforces the true impact the right people have when they are actively recruited into the right roles. 


Robin joined Horton International and joined the group’s international Board in 2001. Horton International joined forces with davidreddin.com in 2019. 


Robin has an active interest in international affairs, and in a wide range of sports including AFL, test cricket, rugby union and soccer. 



Horace brings over 30 years international experience with specialised audit and business advisor expertise - skills that held him in excellent stead to lead Australia’s largest corporate downsize when recruited by David Reddin some 20 years ago. 


Returning to us in 2012, Horace now works with the team as our  Financial Controller and Systems Consultant.


Fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, Horace also loves to walk - from one side of the UK to the other - 309 km in just 16 days! 



Merran has worked in and around recruitment her entire career, gaining valuable experience in consultancies large and small.


Rounding out her commercial experience, Merran also managed a large, high profile hospitality business during a 10-year stint in the UK. This is where her true understanding of the power of getting recruitment right came from. She has lived it, breathed it (and cooked it!).


When Merran isn’t whipping up treats to share with her friends over a glass of red, she’s walking, cycling, or fine tuning her tennis game.



Andrew brings 25 years of experience and a wealth of commercial insight and know-how to our team. 


Fuelled by a keen interest in agriculture, professional services and manufacturing,

Andrew recruits a range of senior management positions and unique technical specialist functions into these industries. And more. 

A qualified CPA, Andrew is married with three young children, a passionate sailor and has competed in both Victorian and Australian Championship Sailing Regattas. 


As Partner (and company namesake), David does more than lead a team of committed consultants.


With 40-plus years executive search, recruitment, HR, coaching and commercial experience across dozens of industries regionally, in capital cities and around the world, David still loves the work and finding bold and audacious solutions for his clients.


Something of a wine and chocolate connoisseur, David usually enjoys these by the fire with one of his beloved dogs in his lap.



Jill is an integral part of the davidreddin.com back of house team. She is focused on supporting our team of partners and consultants, providing research assistance, tender analysis and costing, client and candidate/participant contact, supplier relationship management, and accounts payable and receivable.


The depth Jill adds to our team comes from her exposure over many years to functions as diverse as Accounting and Payroll, Supply Chain, Quality, and Customer Service. She has worked alongside businesses both large and small and is used to liaising managers and teams at all levels.


Personally, Jill is an avid lover of history, reading and good coffee and food.



Mark has built a career in strategic and operational HR/ER and IR over 30 years in both the public and private sectors. This sees his networks into employer bodies, unions and government at all levels extremely well developed and over this time, Mark’s skills have been utilised in training, advocacy, mediation, counselling and presenting. 


During his career, Mark has supported senior teams with practical, workable and commercially realistic advice, understanding that careful risk management underpins every outcome. 


Perhaps it is these elements of his work that underpin Mark’s keen interest in Australian military history including many battlefield visits.



Rachael has spent her career doing what she loves - helping  people to be their best at work. 


Starting out as an organisational psych and consultant, Rachael then moved ‘client side’ and held a number of internal human resources / organisational development roles with professional services companies.

In the past few years she has moved back into the organisational psychology space adding value to our clients' businesses as a trusted advisor on their ‘people’ questions.

In her personal time, Rachael enjoys looking after her large, rambling garden, helps out in her local community and supports the local food and wine establishments in Healesville, all with her beloved dog, Abby, as her shadow.


Michelle has been building her expertise as a personal brand strategist for over 20 years. Her “Why” is creating outcomes through helping people stand out, leave a legacy, and grow their personal brands, manage careers and develop into influential leaders.


Professional highlights include profitable business development with leading consulting firms; coaching sales executives with global responsibilities; leading national teams including recruitment; training and delivery strategies; and successfully delivered coaching programs for leadership effectiveness and high potential career management.  

Since relocating to the Mornington Peninsula, Michelle is rediscovering the joys of coastal living; emerging wineries and live music.



With over 20 years experience in marketing, communications and public relations, Kate is an accomplished and experienced practitioner. She brings a wealth of experience across a huge range of industries and has worked with our team for over decade. 

Working with our clients, Kate's commitment to communicating from the inside out differentiates our programs in the marketplace and adds layers of depth and support to our offering. 


​Kate also brings an impressive shoe collection, need-for-cheese and a love of words and where they came from. 



Liz is relied upon to support both our clients' marketing and communications activities, and our own. 


She is energised by collaboration with others to bring bright ideas to life and derives great pleasure from creating meaningful connections with clients, co-workers and everyone she encounters.


​Her robust executive support experience holds her in excellent stead to help manage the vital and sometimes delicate element of communications, supporting our team, and our clients all the way. 

Liz is well traveled but found herself recently grounded with the arrival of her daughter. And wouldn't have it any other way... most days.
