As CEO, I am extremely privileged to be part of the Comair family. I don't think you will find a tougher, more interesting, dynamic and vibrant environment than the travel industry, and especially the airlines which makes up the bulk of our business. This industry sees every new member as part of a unique community and offers a vast variety of career opportunities.
My own journey at Comair started in the mid 90's, after completing my studies at the University of Cape Town and doing articles at KPMG. I joined Comair as Financial Manager to be part of one of the most successful and innovative privately owned airlines in South Africa.
Comair has grown from a small, family-owned business to a sizeable company with four consumer brands, two service brands, and a team of 2,000 employees.
It is listed on the JSE with an astonishing record of declaring an operating profit in every one of its 68 years of existence. Its biggest strength remains the quality of its people and we are fortunate to be able to attract the best talent in the industry. We continue to set increasingly challenging customer service standards for ourselves, which has ensured the success of each of our products.
I am not only surrounded by an experienced and dedicated leadership team , but am also part of a family of aviation and travel enthusiasts whose aim is to deliver an awesome travel experience in the most efficient way.
