Nigel Jopson - Managing Director

I essentially function in General Management for our company. I try to keep my focus on supporting activities internally that impact positively on superior service to our customers. I try and avail myself at all times to assisting and supporting all of our staff so that they might effectively service our customers. Being a pioneer by heart I am most happy when working on something new and exciting such as potential suppliers, new products and expansion. Interacting with our numerous local and overseas suppliers is another one of my roles.

Our large and busy family takes care of a lot of my free time. I enjoy watching most sports and potting around at home. For recreation I enjoy bike rides and fishing. I am always keen on a good movie and have been referred to a "foodie" at times. I enjoy travel both locally in South Africa and overseas. Other interests are home improvements and renovations and we always have some project on the go. My bucket list is not entirely empty yet and contains things like - road tripping up the West Coast, an Island Fishing Trip, catching a big Grunter on the Kowie River and restoring a Muscle Car!
