Herman Venter has recently been appointed as the new Branch Manager for Hytec in Richards Bay, effective 1 April 2017. Venter, who is no stranger to the Hytec Group, will be responsible for managing external sales and assets as well as managing internal personal at the branch.
Venter has long been committed to growing the Hytec Group in Africa with his six years’ experience as a Technical Sales Representative at the Richards Bay branch. Prior to that, Venter honed his internal relations skills with over a decade of experience as a Labour Broker in the region.
“With 15 years of experience in the shipping and labour industry, Herman brings great value and insight for our Richards Bay Team,” says Robbie Login, KZN Area Manager, Hytec. “This, paired with his approachable nature and open-door policy will certainly see him succeed in his new role and more importantly will help his 10-member team succeed in their roles, too.”
Bass-guitar enthusiast Venter is married to Magda and has two children, Anneke and Giann. When not grinding away at the coast, he enjoys taking the family inland for the holidays – especially to the hot water springs!
“I am very proud of being a member of the Hytec Group, particularly of the joint venture with Bosch Rexroth that will see the Group grow to new levels of success in sub-Saharan Africa,” says Herman Venter, Branch Manager, Hytec Richards Bay. “I look forward to what lies ahead of us at the branch and strive to steer it success while remaining in good standings with our customers in and around Richards Bay.
