Wayne joined Cowan International in 2004 based in Bloemfontein, SA and brought with him experience gained in French West Africa (Mali and Guinea) where he was the Training Manager for Moolman Mining- a well known open pit mining contractor.

Wayne established the Cowan branch in South Africa in 2005 and continues to build upon its success. He currently leads a team of eight recruiters managing hiring needs for some of the biggest names in the industry – domestically and outside of South Africa.

With a strong customer focus Wayne prides himself on going the extra mile for his clients, a commitment that has paid off in repeat business. His dedication to cultivating long term relationships has opened doors and opportunities to diversify, initiating Cowan’s ventures into the Energy sector.
