  1. Damien Haarhoff

    Operations Manager

  2. How long have you been here?

    2.5 years but feels like I have never worked anywhere else!

  3. What attracted you to join?

    I was drawn to the passion and excitement shown by the management team in my interview. I could see myself growing as the Business did. Moving out of the Fashion Industry was an added bonus!

  4. What drives you in business?

    I am driven by my need to always be busy, I cannot stand to not have something to do.

  5. What qualifies you to do the job you do?

    A proven track record of delivering projects on time and on budget.

  6. Who is your biggest professional influencer and why?

    Mark Shuttleworth is a South African entrepreneur who when he sold his company in 1999 he gave all of his staff R1m from the deal. He rewarded the people who supported him and helped along the way. I was in my final year of school at the time but I recall thinking this is how I want to be remembered, even as a big corporation do not forget the "little" people.

  7. What do you do in your spare time?

    Now that I have retired from amateur rugby, I have found myself coaching my son's football team. Nothing prepares you for the challenges of the business world like keeping eight 7 year olds in check on a weekend. I am also "slowly" working my way to running a marathon… watch this space!

  8. If you could turn back time and do one thing differently what would it be?

    I would have taken a year and gone travelling before going straight into the work place.

  9. Why did you chose this photo of you?

    I chose this picture of me as my rugby days are some of my most enjoyable, this is me making a line break. I dropped the ball and butchered the try… but it was a great line break.
