Lorraine Meldrum

CEO, Swann Global

As the CEO of Swann Global, a worldwide executive search group, Lorraine oversees Swann’s executive search, consulting and board offerings. She has been with Swann for 16 years, having overseen Swann’s Australian business before taking the helm of the company. Under her leadership, Swann has blossomed internationally and Lorraine, along with her team, is always looking to develop new and unique strategies for executive search and selection of distinguished talent.

Lorraine has spent considerable time developing and supporting Swann’s North American office in Toronto and she was responsible for establishing Swann’s Latin American office in Santiago.
In separating out the inevitably small number of exceptional people in any particular category, Lorraine is known for identifying qualities that contribute to the future proofing of an organisation and attributes which indicate high standards of personal integrity, intellect and inspiring leadership qualities.

As a committed contributor to the mining industry Lorraine serves as a Fellow of the AusIMM. She engages in Swann’s Thought Leadership programme, which is a key interest of hers. These reports cover a series of subjects including the selection of talent, identifying key criteria, analysing indicators of exceptional leaders, remuneration practices, and variations in management style in the different world regions.

Prior to joining Swann Global, Lorraine spent a number of years in the airline and travel industry with a focus on customer service, people management and recruitment.

Lorraine has a passion for sports, a deep interest in people, and a dedication to good food and excellent wine.
