OUR EXPERIENCE EQUALS YOUR PEACE OF MIND

JACQUES VAN DER MERWE

CA(SA) + Managing Director

Meet JACQUES


Jacques, our Managing Director obtained his BCompt (Hons) from UNISA. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant and Registered Auditor. He is a keen mountain bike enthusiast and has a passion for business and flying.

Once business is taken care of, you will find him somewhere in the bushveld enjoying a sunrise and a cup of coffee with his family or cycling on a dirt road after dark - just for the fun of it. He plans on completing a few endurance races, like the Trans Baviaans, in the near future. So, if you are looking for peace of mind when it comes to your finances and an astute endurance partner with a passion for business, look no further.

He is a remarkable problem solver and communicator and takes pride in assisting his clients with their financial needs in a professional and efficient manner.

Danie’s passion in three words: SWIM, BIKE, RUN.

TONIE BOUWER

CA(SA) + Director

MEET TONIE


Tonie earned his BCom Accounting Sciences qualification from Tukkies and his BCompt (Hons) degree from UNISA. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant and Registered Auditor. He is outstanding at optimizing cash flow and maximizing business profits whilst keeping the bigger picture in mind at all times. He is a self-proclaimed philanthropist with a deep desire to see people succeed in business and in life.

The great outdoors is where he finds his solitude; whether it is by exploring nature on a mountain bike, road tripping to remote places or through his love of hunting. He plans on driving the lengthy distance from Cape Town to Cairo in his Hilux (we hope he documents it with his Gopro!), but first he will be ticking the Cape Epic off his bucket list. If you want to take your business or personal goals and achievements to the next level, you should give Tonie a call.

He is a fantastic leader and strives to constantly deliver the best audit and accounting advice to his clients. He enjoys all forms of sport, but his first loves lies with the game of golf.

It will come as no surprise then, that you will find him on a golf course when business is taken care of.
