Background

Genius Reserve was founded in 2002 by Pierre Fourie, the Managing Director, to fill the urgent gap for a professional executive search team with real understanding of the complex African resourcing market.

Commitment to our clients and an unrivalled track record in the Africa region subsequently enabled Genius Reserve to expand its service providing high quality executive search around the globe.

Pierre is passionate about the Genius Reserve business and this, coupled with his energetic motivation and total commitment to successful project delivery, has enabled him and his team to build long term business relationships with key individuals in highly successful multinationals.

Since founding Genius Reserve, Pierre has focused on executive search assignments on behalf of blue chip, multinational companies for key international roles in regions including the UK, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe & Asia. Pierre has recruited and developed highly successful search consultants and researchers, to manage projects while he still holds an active stake in the business on a day-to-day basis.

Pierre also provides companies with advice on organisation design & structure, the strategic resourcing of key roles and career management and coaching for senior executives.

Pierre holds a Master's degree in Industrial Psychology and worked for 14 years as a Senior Director in International Human Resources in the FMCG sector for blue chip, multinational companies. As the entity stands today, Genius Reserve has a global presence which boasts coverage of Africa, Middle East, Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and Australasia.
