About us

Founders Rudy Crous and Carl Hartmann created Compono because they inherently believe that an organisation’s sustained competitive advantage will always be the people that work for the business. A serial entrepreneur, Carl quickly learnt that hiring and nurturing the wrong people can come at a huge cost to growth. Similarly, Rudy’s experience as a corporate psychologist left him frustrated at the cost of bad hiring and career development practices employed by many businesses.
