Sam Deuchar leads the Rebmormax team. She is a seasoned HR, talent and change management executive with extensive corporate and consulting experience across the finance, IT and construction industries. She provides consulting expertise specifically in talent acquisition and people strategy.

A thought leader in strategic recruitment services, Sam established The Oval Office in 1997 and built the company to an annual turnover of R22 million and a staff complement in excess of 30. Notable deals during this time include the movement of the Macquarie Derivatives team to Investec, and a team of commodity specialists to Investec Bank.

The Oval Office became known for the placement of CEOs and senior executives in the IT and financial services sectors. The business was first listed by Investec into Acumen and then sold to the Adcorp Group in 2004.
