Allana Spree and Associates is owned and managed by Allana Spree.
Initially trained as a secondary teacher, Allana's entry into the commercial sphere came when she joined Drake International. She quickly progressed through the company and subsequently joined the Cadbury Schweppes' Head Office HR team in Melbourne. Allana had a specific remit to attract executive talent into the organisation and to ensure the leadership development and retention of this high performing group. Allana was subsequently approached by the General Manager of one of Cadbury Schweppes' major subsidiaries to take up the position of National Marketing Manager in Sydney. She was an integral member of the leadership team in the transformation of this company into one of Australia's first franchised operations.
Following a successful career with Cadbury Schweppes, Allana was approached to join Hamilton James & Bruce in Sydney. She was subsequently appointed a Director of this search firm.
After returning to Melbourne, Allana joined a newly established boutique executive search consultancy, Hamilton Jones & Koller. She was appointed the National General Manager of the Group, a position she held for eleven years, overseeing the executive recruitment operations in Melbourne and the establishment of the firm's Sydney office. Under Allana's leadership, the firm was repeatedly ranked as Highly Recommended in numerous industry surveys in both Melbourne and Sydney.
In January 2002 Allana established her own company and has successfully completed assignments in executive search and selection across a broad range of industries and sectors in Australia.
