He started his career as a civil engineer and joined McDonald’s SA in 1996 as a project manager and was instrumental in building many of its first restaurants. He believes that to lead, you have to have followed and this is evidenced in his multifunctional experience across the organisation, including supply chain, marketing and operations.

His leadership has resulted in 10 years of market share and profit growth while managing a diversified franchise portfolio. He is married, has two adult children and is passionate about family, wildlife and health.
