Thanks for stopping by!

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

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

I also help professionals, executives and directors with making strategic career moves.

A dual Australian and US citizen, I started in this field 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 including start-ups, US Fortune 500, ASX 100, and global multi-nationals.


Examples of executive search assignments I’ve completed are: Director, CEO, CFO, VP, Regional Manager, Country Manager, General Manager, Project Manager, Commercial Manager, Engineering Manager, Principal and Senior Advisor.

Industries I’ve recruited for includes: Banking, Biotechnology, Education, Luxury, Mining, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceuticals, Resources, Telecommunications and Technology. This shows my versatility to operate across sectors.

I have a proven track record of success, as an internal and external resource, which means clients can rely on my team and I to deliver. Leaders trust me to drive high standards of human resources practice.

I’m also an Author, Speaker and Philanthropist.

I’ve published six (6) eBooks and have been quoted in the media as a subject matter expert on executive search, recruitment, career management and the hidden job market.

“I worked with Shireen while I heading the Employment function at Virgin Mobile in Walnut Creek, CA. Shireen quickly demonstrated her staffing expertise and has a unique ability to quickly source and present those “hard to find” information technology and engineering professionals everyone is trying to hire. With her help, we were able to staff the enterprise and meet our talent requirements. She is a great partner for any company seeking to grow their organization.”
