BIO

Stella Petrou Concha is the inspiring

Co-Founder, CEO, and driving force behind fast-growing brand Reo Group. Her mission is to elevate human potential by working with executives to deliver value for their organisations through leadership, strategy and vision.

Commencing a career in medicine, she quickly realised the doctor-patient dynamic was never going to meet her need and lifelong goal to help people on a deeply personal level. Instead she discovered a powerful alignment with the recruitment and management consulting industry.

Stella founded Reo Group in 2009, and since then the business has won many industry awards, including being named a BRW Fast 100 company.

Stella was named one of Australia's Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs and has been nominated for the SARA awards as Recruitment leader of the year for 2019.

She currently Chairs for CEO consortium '2020 Exchange'.

 

Reo Group’s giving campaign, “Elevate a Nation”, which aims to provide 50,000 days of education to underprivileged children in Australia by 2021.

Through her energy, intuition, and vision, Stella brings a unique and powerfully 'human' perspective to the Australian recruitment and consulting industries.

She believes that it is only through facing and overcoming life’s great challenges, in particular failure, that individuals can grow and develop, and has built her organisation on the notion that 'failing forward' is the key to success.

Stella is the co-author of Legacy – the Sustainable Development Goals in Action and will be releasing her second book Stone Heart Light Heart – Thriving and Succeeding in Life Using the Ancient Wisdom of the Mind later in 2019.
