We hereby announce the retirement of Auguste (Gusti) Coetzer as a Director of Signium Africa, however, she remains a Shareholder of the company. Her retirement is well-earned and well-deserved but we will miss her energy, commitment, hardwork, and unique sense of humour in the office.  There are many times when clients, candidates and colleagues have relied on her intelligence and intuition to make important decisions and have emerged the better for it.   

Gusti is known to many as the doyenne of executive search and she was instrumental in shaping the industry in South Africa.  Leaving the search world will not be entirely easy for Gusti because it was her passion and she poured her heart and soul into not only identifying and growing talent within the industry, but also going above and beyond to take care of each one of her clients and candidates. 

In her own way, she has significantly contributed to the success of many South African businesses.

It is time to express our appreciation for the great friendships we have had with Gusti over the years and to wish her well in the next chapter of her life.  She leaves a proud legacy behind her and a team of capable and competent partners at Signium Africa.

We always welcome engaging with our clients and candidates, so please feel free to reach out to Mosima Selekisho, Annelize van Rensburg or Michelle Moss on Tel: 011 771 4800 or to assist with your executive search and leadership consulting needs.
