About Greg Savage FRCSA (Life):
Over a career spanning thirty years, Greg is an undisputed leader of the global recruitment industry, and is a regular keynote speaker at staffing conferences around the world.

After graduating with Honors in Psychology, Greg started his career in Executive Search in Australia, before he went on to manage the London office of the United Kingdom’s largest accounting recruiter for two years. In the early 1980s he returned to Australia to run the Sydney office of Accountancy Placements (now the Hays Group), where he was invited to join the Board of Directors at age 27.

Greg founded Recruitment Solutions in 1987, and rapidly built the start-up across Australia and New Zealand, culminating in eight offices, 200 staff, and annual sales of $60,000,000. Such was Recruitment Solutions’ success that, in July 1998, the company was successfully listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, with Greg at its helm as both Executive Director and COO.

April 2001, Greg joined Aquent and as International CEO, assumed responsibility for all Aquent businesses outside of North America, which then comprised of over 25 offices across Europe, Asia, and Australasia.

In 2010 Greg acquired the Permanent and Search business of Aquent in Europe, Asia and Australasia, via a management buy-out, and founded Firebrand Talent Search. He quickly created a global brand for this specialist Digital and Marketing recruiter, and successfully sold the business, in 7 countries, in January 2013

In recognition of his contribution to the Australian recruitment industry, Greg was made an Honorary Life Member of the Recruitment and Consulting Services Association (RCSA) in 2004.

An early adopter of social media for recruiting, Greg’s industry blog - The Savage Truth - is a must-read for recruitment consultants, while his Twitter feed similarly attracts thousands of followers from around the world.

Greg now provides consulting, advisory and training services to recruitment, professional services and social media companies across the world.
