Robert van Stokrom, RCSA Board member of 10 years, will step down as President at the AGM on November 24.
But before he finds himself with more time to spend with his family and band mates while racing his BMW car, the proud board director offered some sage advice for the industry body and incoming president.

Robert joined RCSA’s board in 2003 and has served as President for the past four years. While Robert is best known in the recruitment sector, many don’t know he spent 23 years working for multi-national pharmaceutical companies before moving into recruitment.
“I enjoyed the complex technical environment of pharmaceutical operations” he said, “From R&D, manufacturing, QA, QC, to distribution, to overseeing the entire supply chain for lifesaving pharmaceuticals, this role was very rewarding” he said. “However, after 23 years, I needed a change to something more people related, recruitment was an obvious choice.”
