Michael De Santis


Principal Consultant

Michael De Santis is a Principal Consultant at Ccentric Group, responsible for end to end executive search processes and engagement of both new and existing clients and candidates.

From new client development and awareness of our executive search services, through the entire search process starting with initial client brief and awareness of needs to successful, placement of candidate and follow-up contact re satisfaction in new appointment and organisation.

His extensive scientific knowledge and interest in the health and scientific field has seen him obtain his PhD in neuropharmacology, and present and publish multiple journal articles on his research. Since moving into a consultant role at Ccentric Group Michael’s passion for health and making a difference in the community has been combined with an intricate understanding and continually refined approach to executive search and the healthcare and academic sectors in which we work.

Michael is passionate for health but also has a great passion for people. Furthermore whilst recruitment can often get a polarising reaction, there was an ingrained culture within Ccentric Group of wanting to help both highly driven and ethical people find the role and organisation that will facilitate the achievement of success that will subsequently see improvements to the services provided to the public.

Outside of work Michael’s interests lie in surf lifesaving where he patrols at his local beach, soccer/football where he both play and coach and running.
