Connect With Me

Lyapa Nakazwe-Masiya, based in Johannesburg, oversees C-suite and executive board placements in Africa. A member of Egon Zehnder’s Consumer and global Human Resources practices, she has deep expertise in consumer markets in the South African Development Community and has also been involved in many pro bono searches.

I love being able to partner with clients to solve crucial, complex problems. These interactions influence my cognitive frame and have helped me become a better advisor.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Lyapa was an Assignment Manager at Stanton Chase International, an American executive search company with operations in South Africa. She began her career as a researcher at a boutique company, Jack Hammer Executive Headhunters, in Cape Town.

Lyapa has a Bachelor of Commerce in information systems and a Postgraduate Diploma in marketing management from the University of Cape Town. She also has an MBA from the Gordon Institute of Business Science. Lyapa is passionate about human psychology and published her first journal article on the effect of the impostor phenomenon on measures of assertiveness in female professionals. In her free time, she mentors African executives for the Paris campus of Sciences Po as part of its LeAD Campus Africa project and enjoys spending time with her husband and two young daughters.
