Welcome to Ysker

Ysker is a boutique, Board Appointments, Executive Search, Management and Leadership Recruitment Consulting Firm which also provides executives, leaders, managers, professionals and business owners and operators with objective, personalised advice, guidance  and support at peer level.

Created and led by Barry T. Knight, our business model and philosophy has been established and developed as a result of his direct and practical profit centre management involvement at senior decision making level and a lineage in the consulting industry which stretches back more than thirty years.

In particular, we recognise and understand through personal experience gained throughout Australasia in management roles, extensive consulting interventions, and business ownership capacities, the challenges of both leadership and business ownership, and importantly, the impact of the loneliness and/or isolation which can accompany such success.

Having sat on both sides of the desk, we believe that we are well positioned to assist and advise our clients through the adoption of a strong, pragmatic, communicative, service and solutions oriented approach as opposed to promoting the canned, product oriented or slick, fashionable process driven methodologies often sighted in today's market place.

Ysker provides its clients with "An ear to lean on" in times where there is a need for 3rd party objectivity
