Mike Surawski

Divisional Manager - Business Services

I have 18 years’ sales experience, in sales management and business Development. I have been fortunate enough to have worked across Australia; based in a variety of offices including Newcastle, Brisbane and now Melbourne, which I happily call home!

A Senior Consultant of bta Sales, which is Australia’s longest running and most successful recruitment firm to the executive sales profession. Over more than 25 years we have found jobs for over 4,500 sales people.

I love the recruitment industry and am passionate about helping candidates find their next career opportunity and assisting my clients in building successful sales teams across their whole business, whether it small, large or anywhere in between.

Outside of work you will find me slow cooking on my BBQ, going to wineries and eating at restaurants around Melbourne.  A test cricket tragic from way back; my ideal afternoon is spent watching a match and screaming at the television with beer in hand. 

Current Positions


Walter Olsen

Head of EMPR Solutions - ANZ EMPR Solutions

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt on briefs to find very specific headcount for my business. I found Matt took the time to understand my business and as well as the strategic plans to make sure that he would find the right candidates not only from a skill set, but from a behavioral and personality perspective. The calibre of candidates that Matt presented were exemplary, and exceeded the brief provided. I have found his approach very professional and really questioning and challenging what was required in my business. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants a targeted approach to recruiting roles to the benefit of their business and understanding the nuances of their business.

Michael takes a lot of the uncertainty out of the recruitment process. He is very thorough, forthcoming, and proactive with any and all communication. Expectations were made abundantly clear and he gave me plenty of space to revise and prepare. Very impressed.

Sarah McGoldrick

I have had the privilege of having first hand experience in working with in my opinion the most highly regarded, experienced and passionate recruiter in the Melbourne Architectural Sales Industry. I have known Steven for a very long time professionally and hold him in high regard for anyone who needs job placement assistance. He has assisted me in getting the role that I have wanted in the most professional manner. Everything he says he is going to do he does at 150%.

Janina Geraghty

Mark is a true professional who cares about the candidates he presents as much as he does about his clients. I have been both Mark's candidate and client and appreciate his attention to detail and the time he takes to research the needs of the role and in preparing suitable candidates. This is testament to Mark's professionalism and respect for both the client and candidate's time and his success for matching the right person with the right role.
