OUR ‘WOMAN OF THE MONTH’,
Shereen Hunter is the CEO and founder of the Hunter Group. Beyond and before business, she is a mother, wife, sister and ardent learner. She is fanatical about knowledge, both attaining and imparting it. Shereen has an insatiable appetite to do and learn more. She also believes that education and knowledge are the most valuable tools an individual can have to find sustainable success.
Teaching has been her lifelong dream. To equip and empower those around her, willing to accept the invitation.
Today, through the Hunter Group, Shereen sees the realisation of bringing together education, business and people.
The journey here began as early as 1993, where a tenacious 18 year old Shereen Hunter set off to Australia solo, as a Rotary Exchange Student. In that same year she represented South Africa at the United Nations Youth Conference in Brisbane.
Between her stay in Australia, numerous other travels and completion of her secondary education, Shereen was offered a scholarship to attend Queensland University. She declined the prestigious offer, opting to return to her roots in Johannesburg instead. Here, she decided to pursue undergraduate law.
In her third year, she changed course and took up Psychology, feeling that this would be better suited for her ambitions to service people in business through education and organisational development.
She graduated from the University of Witwatersrand with a degree majoring in Industrial Psychology and International Relations. In between she obtained a Diploma in Sales & Marketing Management and Project Management. Thereafter, she spent three years at a well renowned Bible School studying Biblical Principals and Their Application.
With a decade of tertiary education in tow, Shereen entered the business world. She completed the rest of her studies whilst permanently employed, working for corporate companies such as Oreport, International Health & Racquet Club (now Virgin Active) Regional Head Office, Future Life Insurance, Bidvest, CN Business Furniture, CFC International and Women of Worth. Her career took her swiftly after only 1 year as a Sales Consultant to National Marketing Manager at age 23, to Regional Sales Manager to Directorship and finally to where she finds herself now – the owner of several companies.
She believes that a successful, fruitful business career is simply the vehicle she uses to achieve her greatest ambitions in Community Work.
Shereen is also the Founding Member of ‘ITS NOT ABOUT ME’ – a non-profit project and movement.
