Where are you from?
I’m from sunny South Africa and have recently joined headland 4 months ago. I chose Australia because it’s a country that is known to import some of the best professionals in the world. Personally, I am always looking to test myself and push the limits against the best. When you throw in the fantastic culture and nature of people in this nation, as well as the fact that Australia is strikingly similar to SA it was a no brainer.
What got you into this industry?
Engineering and industry has been my first and only career, I started in my early 20s. There was a surge in SA manufacturing at this point hence the opportunity and have never looked back.
What do you love about working with manufacturers?

How long have you been with Headland?
Nearly four months.
What do you love about the job?
The fact that I represent No 1 brands in the world and can confidently talk about these reliable machines. knowing they will deliver day in and day out. I also enjoy being able to guide and assist customers to better their businesses for future growth.
