Meet the Team


Dene Gambotto



Dene is as much a recruiter as she is marketer – with years working for advertising agencies in Sydney and London, developing campaigns for brands such as Dell, Volvo, P&O, Lloyds TSB and British Airways. Upon returning from the UK in late 2000, Dene embarked on a new career by joining a UK marketing recruitment consultancy launching in Australia and in 2008 went on to set up iknowho.

Over the last decade she has helped hundreds of marketers find new roles within companies such as Vodafone, Citrix, Nickelodeon, Woolworths, Expedia and The Sydney Opera House. Clients and candidates alike enjoy her proactive and honest approach.

Today Dene manages the overall business and still at times recruits on behalf of our corporate clients.

Dene is a breath of fresh air. Her passion and style sets her worlds apart. She is honest and genuine about finding the perfect match between talent and potential employers. Dene is someone who I have the up-most trust and respect for and I can't recommend her or her team at iknowho more highly.

Candice Seymour, Senior Marketing Manager

When I first met Dene it felt like we'd been friends for years. She took the time to truly understand where I wanted to take my career and the type of organisation I wanted to join. I know she has my best interests at heart when new opportunities come knocking.

Nadine Cran - Brand Comms Specialist

Dene is without a doubt one of the best recruiters/directors in Sydney. She is a true consultant and advisor. Not only that but she genuinely cares about both her clients and candidates. Extremely rare to find in this industry and I can't recommend working with Dene enough.

Johnny Wood - Engagement & Recognition Specialis

Dene has always been a pleasure to work with. She is beyond trustworth, has a wealth of knowledge in the industry and always has your best interests at heart. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a recruitment consultant!

Rebecca - Marketing Specialist

It was lovely meeting you. Thank you for your feedback also, the strongest and most productive I have had, appreciate it.

Louise - Marketing Director

Dene has been absolutely invaluable in the development of my career, both as a friend and as someone who finds me great jobs! She is one of the few recruiters who takes the time to really understand the people she represents and has always placed me in jobs that not only suit my skills, but more importantly I've enjoyed. I've also hired several people through Dene's consultation, and they have without fail been valued additions to the team.
