Managing Director

Alan Russell is the Managing Director of Antal International South Africa. Antal International is the receiver of numerous awards, namely Recruiter Awards of Excellence 2011 (Commended), Best International Recruitment Agency category at the 2012 Recruiter Awards, Best Overseas Operation and Asia Pacific APSCo Member of the Year 2012, International Recruitment Company of the Year at the 2012 APSCo Awards for Excellence, Highly Commended for the Best International Recruitment Agency category at the Recruiter Awards for Excellence 2013, FINALIST for Best Recruitment Agency Marketing Team 2013, Best UK Overseas Operation category at the Global Recruiter Industry Awards 2013.

Antal has been in South Africa since 2007 and Alan has turned Antal International South Africa into a leading recruitment firm within South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa.

After completing his education, Alan went on to spend 17 years in the FMCG corporate world; starting his own company in 1997, which he ran for 3 years. Alan was then approached by a large company to manage corporate accounts in the technology sector. Alan was never cut out to become an employee, so after a year in the technology sector; he found a gap in the market and started his own IT company; his entrepreneurial spirit was as strong as ever and was approached by a larger corporation who wanted to take over his company.

Alan identified a need to get involved in Training and Development which lead through a client relationship to international recruitment, with the view of bringing skills back to South Africa, and while doing research, came across Antal International.

Alan developed Antal International South Africa along with his existing human resources company; and in 2010 decided to focus solely on Antal International South Africa.

Not surprisingly, it has been quite a bumpy ride; but Antal International South Africa has kept growing; and has offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Antal International South Africa won the Antal Office of the Year award twice, in 2011 and 2014, a true testament to the strong leadership and entrepreneurial spirit.
