Tina and I have been married since 1972 and are Shareholders and Directors of Kwena Air (Pty) Ltd, which we started in 1984. The Company was incorporated as an Air Charter, Inbound Tourism and Aerial Survey Company providing a wide variety of solutions to our existing International Clients.
During 2002 we moved our offices and residence from Johannesburg to Port Alfred
After completing my education in Hamburg, I immigrated to South Africa and, prior to starting Kwena Air together with Tina, I worked for an engineering company as Marketing Manager in charge of the agency section.
I joined the Rotary Club of Port Alfred in 2003 and I have served as Director of Community Service between 2004 and 2007 and again in 2009. I have initiated several large Grant projects for the Club and served as President during the 2010/2011 Rotary year.
In addition to the Community Service and the Rotarian of the year awards, I am a Paul Harris Fellow.
For Tina and myself, Rotary is a way of life and every project that makes a difference to the Community is a highlight in our Rotary experience.
Prior to the amalgamation of Districts 9320 & 9270 I served as District Governor Elect.
We enjoy traveling, opera and ballet and, of course, taking our two Weimaraner dogs for long walks on the beach.
