Dusten has been involved in technology since the early ‘90’s (even earlier if you take into account a childhood obsession with ZX80’s).

His early career involved the sales of ecommerce solutions in the days before the Internet was mainstream. During this period he thrashed all company records, never achieving less than 110% of target and won most sales awards for quarterly and annual sales.

In the late ‘90’s he successfully sold complex enterprise software solutions. Exceeding targets every year, including 140% of a $ 6 Million target in 1998. He qualified for every Quota club, and won numerous international incentive trips.

In 2001, appointed Sales Director of a JSE listed software co and tasked with building team to meet ambitious sales targets. One of the frustrations in achieving this was getting the right skills on board. Typical recruitment agencies’ lacked the business understanding. Dusten resorted to head hunting his own team and found that he was rather good at it, not to mention that he thoroughly enjoyed the process. He had found his calling.

NeilsonYoung Consulting was formed in early 2002, and over the last 15 years Dusten has grown the company from a micro entity into an established company, with a strong team of business focused consultants.

The company is a preferred supplier to many local and international giants.

Company achievements include:

• Year on year revenue growth in excess of 440% in the first four years.
• Achievement of the AAA Empowerdex BEE rating in 2006 and then the highest possible BEE rating in 2007 of AAA+
• Guiding NYC through the turmoil of the 2008 economic meltdown and remaining independent, despite many similar operations closing down or being bought out.

The achievement that he is most proud of is the development of a culture and core team of people for whom recruitment is not a job, but a lifestyle. This team, without whom NYC would not exist, is the sole reason for the company’s continued success.
