Background: - Following an 8 year journey up the ladder in the ICT sector, the opportunity arose for me to utilize my business development and customer management skills in the plastic and packaging sector. The move to the plastic and packaging sector was an immediate success with the brokering of a deal between one of the largest retailers in South Africa and a small manufacturer. - Over the last 10 years, I have played a significant role in developing the manufacturer into one of the top 3 manufacturers in the country and in 2018 negotiated the biggest deal thus far for the exclusive supply of 100% recycled bags to another major retailer. - I am always on the lookout for sound and sustainable business opportunities and over the last 3 years have invested in and acquired shares in a solar water heater manufacturing company in South Africa and a pharmaceutical company in India, with the aim of developing them into successful players in their respective sectors. - I am very good at interacting with, motivating and guiding people and have a successful track record in all industries I have been involved in.
