What drives me
There is not one thing I love most about Investec, it is the many things that I love that make it a special place, its people, its culture, the continued involvement of its founder / owners, flat structure, loyalty of the brand to its people and vice versa, and the opportunities it offers its employees. My career highlight was taking over as CEO of Investec Property Fund Ltd in April 2015.
I love spending time with my family and enjoy relaxing with friends and unwinding at the dinner table, around a braai, or on holiday. I enjoy a good game of golf, although my inconsistency often proves a frustration. I am a big fan of scuba diving when I get the opportunity.
