Lylie King

Business Development Manager at Kenexa (IBM) South Africa

After having been in the UK for four years, I have relocated to Johannesburg, South Africa. I have recently joined Kenexa (now an IBM company) and am looking forward to what my work here will involve.

I am a versatile psychologist, having worked within the areas of sport, education and business in Africa, and the UK. I have 9 years’ experience of working with individuals, teams and organisations. I particularly enjoy consultancy work and building relationships with clients.
