Executive Search. Recruitment. Career Coaching.



I’m Shireen DuPreez, Director and Principal of Elite Human Capital.

I improve the lives of my clients by assisting them to find, select, hire and retain world-class talent who are the right “fit” for their organisation.

Additionally, I help professionals, executives and directors with preparing for and making strategic career moves into more rewarding positions.

I began work in executive recruitment in 2005 at a retained executive search firm in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since then, I’ve worked in the US, UK and Australia consulting to organisations of varying sizes. This has included start-ups, US Fortune 500, ASX 100, and global multi-nationals.


My breadth of experience demonstrates my versatility to operate across sectors and at all levels of seniority from graduate to board roles.

I’m also an Author, Speaker and Philanthropist.

I’ve appeared in the media as a subject matter expert on executive search, recruitment, career management and the hidden job market.
