I have been involved in retail for the last 20 years. Starting off as a mere merchandiser and worked my way up the ranks over the years. I have been involved in a few sectors within the retail industry, mainly, supermarket, furniture, food and restaurants. Some of the organisations I have worked for are Cambridge Foods( Part of the MassMart group), Checkout Supermarkets, Chicken Licken, Nandos and IAuditor. My tertiary qualifications are a Diploma in Business Management and Administration from Rosebank College and a postgraduate degree from Wits Business School on management . I have also done various short courses over the years to fine tune my various skills, example, Industrial relations, Human Resources, People Leadership and Food Safety and Hygiene,etc. Some of my roles in the previous employment are manager, store manager, general manager, Area manager and operations auditor.
My passion is within the retail food industry due to broad skillset and the ability to achieve results in any challenging situation. In my spare time I provide consulting to management in regards to problem solving tactics and possible ways to improve business productivity and profits. When not working, I spend my time with family and on the ocean as I am an avid fisherman.
