Our innovative operating model is reflected in our ‘flat’ structure and collaborative approach. We are a self-directed and multi-disciplinary team that rallies in support of every initiative, comprising Producers, Promoters, and Expert Services.

The Producers

With a global view, the 460degrees senior leadership team understands the challenges you face in business. Working with considerable grounding in professional services across digital, management consulting and sales, the Producers drive the engines that lead strategy, create solutions, nurture talent, and unify teams.

  • As founder and executive chief of the first true expert management agency, 460degrees, Werner is deeply motivated by the opportunity to champion disruption in the management consulting market.

    Originally from South Africa, Werner enjoyed quick success on arriving in antipodean Australia, becoming a multi-organisation founder, which led him on his path to this venture: representing Australia’s absolute apex of technology experts.

    An accountant by qualification – starting with Price Waterhouse Cooper in 1986 – and an entrepreneur of considerable experience, Werner knows when to take the right risks and how to make them count. He is renowned for spotting a gap in the market, creating a new practice and using that practice to deliver exponential value for his customers.

    For Werner, professional services start with relationships and a commitment to producing results that will provide significant value beyond the inked deliverables. His specialities include: practice strategy, design, leadership and execution, introducing and operating network-based organisational models, continuous innovation and the incubation of professional services firms.

    Werner has a keen interest in all sports, plays golf and tennis and has a real passion for travelling and the study of human behaviour.

  • As Managing Partner at 460degrees, Thang oversees the Consulting & Promoters team.

    With 15 years’ experience overseeing complex digital transformation projects for ASX200 and global companies, he has established himself as a leader, team maker and a business builder with the experience and skills to tackle complex projects. Clients simply trust he will get the job done.

    Prior to his current role, Thang was responsible for successfully delivering transformation strategies that enabled clients to both achieve commercial goals and fulfil company vision.

    His focus now is to ensure both the expert Champions 460degrees represents, and corporate clients using the consulting service, complete highly successful engagements. A key part of this is helping the experts develop their capabilities and solutions to be market-ready. Ultimately, Thang’s role is to actively encourage innovation, engender a sense of unity across a project and obtain the best quality outcomes for all.

    When not engaged in the rewarding challenges of work, Thang can be found honing new skills in the kitchen, cooking for his family.
