Renata Bastalic

General Manager, People & Culture

Genuine, approachable, and nurturing. That’s the first three things that come to mind when you speak to Renata. Next, you realise why she’s so good at engaging and supporting our dream-big, achieve-big vision. As a die-hard people person, she can spot someone worth developing from ten paces and loves stretching not just them, but also herself to open the right opportunities and challenges.

As an engaging down-to-earth person, Renata’s walking proof that Tecala delivers on its promise of Accelerated Brilliance. Initially joining in 2017 as our People & Culture Manager, her ability to enable teams to pull together was quickly recognised. Within two years she became our General Manager – People & Culture, forming part of the Executive Leadership team where she’s now shaping our culture programs. Driven by a need to get a positive outcome, she’s constantly collaborating across our business, as she tries and implements new ways to strengthen our culture, people, and team spirit.

Prior to joining Tecala, Renata worked at numerous cross-industry corporations where she designed and implemented a range of core HR projects spanning the employee experience. As an adept mentor and mediator, she specialises in employee engagement, performance management, health and wellbeing, and learning and development. Each of these specialisations are aimed at ensuring our teams are at their best every day.

General Manager, Sales & Marketing

Brian is a rare find. Understated yet confident, he thrives on rising to the big challenges and sets high standards – but nothing more than he expects of himself. Driven to make a difference, he’s renowned for being a hands-on leader of tight-knit, client-centric teams that turn seemingly impossible obstacles into win-win outcomes.

Ben Leggo
General Manager, Services & Operations

Ben is a modern day alchemist. He regularly thinks at the speed of light, transforms things through technology, and makes magic happen for (and with) our clients. In Ben’s world, technology is the enabler, but he never pushes it for tech’s sake.

Pieter DeGunst
Managing Director

A whirlwind of ideas and constantly moving. That’s how most people would characterise Pieter, even after a brief encounter. His drive, energy, and the speed at which he thinks and talks strikes you immediately, as does his skill in blue-sky-thinking and tactical deep-diving.
