Willem was born in the Northern Province of South Africa, in a town called Modimolle.
Not the usual childhood, though. Being part of a banking family, Willem moved around quite a bit, and was in 8 different schools, in what is now known as four different provinces. This in part made Willem the person he is. “The only constant in life is change”
Willem studied mechanical engineering at the Technikon Pretoria. At the same time qualified as an aircraft maintenance technician in the SA Airforce.
The entrepreneurial spirit always present and came out strong when Willem owned his own business and was one of the originators of the vehicle licensing service industry.
Willem always had “Mad Car Disease”, and started selling cars in 2005. Always at the top of the performers, especially with non-mainstream brands.
Then competition. All Tar Rally, Total Economy Run, CRASSA series. Always want to win, always want to be #1. Always striving to do more, be more.
Willem’s motto in life, actually a few: Never Give Up.
Why Be Normal?
Jesus is Lord.
