Sefapane Lodge (Kruger Park, South Africa)
Manager Business Development
April 2011 – October 2011
Sefapane Lodge is positioned at the gate of the Kruger Park. Together with the owner I have been involved in improving operations of the lodge and services for the Kruger Park, and setting up a new concept in Mozambique, extending current business. One of the most memorable achievements was to organize a successful ‘braai’ with open bar for 200 people in the middle of the Kruger park at night, without water and electricity, but plenty elephants and lions. The learning curve was managing people within clashing cultures with enormous differences in an isolated wildlife environment.

January 2010 – May 2011
As Market Demand Manager, I became responsible for all export operations to my specific regions. My counterparts were the Marketing, Sales, and Supply Chain Directors of the specific countries. Besides the enormous operational experience I gained, my drive was to make my role redundant: get demand and supply in balance; and implement self-enforcing processes. This also included the setup of a customer service office and required investments.
Business Consultant Financial Process Innovation
April 2007 – January 2010
Starting as an Intern I coordinated the Legal Entity Rationalization Project involving Legal, Tax, and Control & Accounting department.

This global program has been set up for several strategical and organizational reasons.

My role was to design and align new processes and organization. After that, I joined the roll-out and implementation team.
