Sharon Ballantyne Davies
Sharon Davies - Founding Director

Sharon is the founding Director of Talent Propeller and works across most aspects of the business. She started her career working as a Recruitment Consultant in the New Zealand market. Realising that many businesses needed support outside of the traditional recruitment agency environment, she joined forces with her current business partners and established a specialist recruitment advertising agency which provided design, copywriting and booking services to companies across the country. After taking the New Zealand market by storm, Sharon launched her business in Australia and built an equally strong reputation for service and creativity. Today her agency is a multi-million dollar business and works with over 950 companies.

Sharon commenced development of the Talent Propeller tools after seeing that the recruitment market was ripe for change, and in 2009 launched a range of online tools that the market immediately lapped up. Sharon's vision is to re-educate businesses, showing there is another way to manage the recruitment process that doesn't need to be arduous. She is passionate about continuing to develop technology that will change the way businesses find and hire staff and set the benchmark across the country for effective recruitment technology. She also believes that all technology needs to be backed by amazing service so works hard to ensure the Talent Propeller team is built on knowledge, service and passion for what we do.

Bosch, Laminex, Dulux, Nylex. They’re all household names - and partially thanks to Global General Manager Joanna, who has used her extensive marketing skills to build an impressive CV and an even more impressive raft of brand recognition throughout her career. Her involvement with our group of companies dates back to as early as 2009 when she managed our Australian branch for several years. Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about our business. She brings top-tier marketing intelligence to our team, helping us provide your company with the most innovative, compelling and successful strategies that the world of recruitment has to offer.
