About Us

The cornerstone of our business is based on the fundamental principles of integrity, trust and transparency.

Over our combined 60 years of experience we have seen shareholder and management changes, growth initiatives, acquisitions and divestures both succeed and fail. We know what to do and how to do it, but more importantly we know what not to do. Our expertise and successes ranges across various industries, including logistics, pharmaceutical, mining, distribution, manufacturing, imports and exports, financial services, banking and agriculture.

The directors of the business are Fanie Meades and Pierre Dixon. Our resources include a number of industry experts and associates who ensure expert services are delivered. If you are ready to create wealth in your business, we are open for a consultation to see how we can assist you.
