I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in animal science from the University of Pretoria in 2002. I served as a dairy technical adviser before switching to commodity trading in 2006, specialising in local and imported protein sources in various positions. I joined Chemuniqué in 2017 to further develop the amino acid portfolio and currently serve as the team lead for amino acids, companion animals, and aquaculture.

I believe we need to move beyond business as usual to form real partnerships, not just based on mutual interest, but on shared values: integrity, trust, honesty, respect, responsibility. Ultimately we deal with people, both in the present and the future, and that’s more important than just business. We have the responsibility to optimise what we have today, while searching for solutions to optimise tomorrow.
