Our Staff

Our staff are partners in our business, not just employees. We care for each other and demonstrate this care. We afford all staff the opportunity to grow. We expect exceptional performance and reward it appropriately. We do the same for and expect the same of our partners, clients, customers and suppliers. We operate on the basis of earned trust and mutual respect. We are committed to capacity development and currently host a number of interns, funded largely from our own resources, and post-graduate students.
