After completing a bachelor of arts degree in Law, Kieron decided to further his education by pursuing his true interest which lay within the world of business and commerce. He did this by completing a second degree in Business Management and by finishing his BCom accounting articles.
Having first entered the yellow-metal industry in the early 1980’s Kieron has built up a wealth of knowledge over an almost 37 year time period. He has run and worked on operations in the construction, mining, waste management, recycling, fuel and oil sectors both nation wide and internationally. Kieron has been the proud owner of one of the biggest fleets of compaction equipment on the continent with experience working in both the private sector and for government organizations.
He has also served as an International Director for one of the biggest waste management companies in Africa with instrumental, hands-on involvement with clients and partners in Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, Angola, Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, D.R.C, Botswana, Mauritius, China and Saudi Arabia.
Brendan takes after his father Kieron having entered into the same line of work. He studied Economics and Business Management at university and then applied himself to a short apprenticeship program with Tube City International at their site in Saldanha Bay to gain some practical field work experience. During this time he worked on the heavy equipment as part of the maintenance crew.
Brendan then went on to work for Babcock Construction Equipment in their first graduate program designed to develop candidates into possible senior management roles within the company. On completion of the program, he moved straight ahead into the African market heading up to the Democratic Republic of Congo to build his own business.
He is now the International Operations Director of Egelquip having established his own solid foundation outside of South Africa in Lubumbashi, DRC. Brendan is the Chief Operating Officer of Egelquips sister company and local regional partner for central Africa – Finn MacCool DRC SARL. Finn MacCool DRC SARL provides services in fuel transportation, waste management, oil recycling and mining scrap material recycling.
Marketing and brand awareness are Tebogo’s driven focus points having obtained his honours degree in BCom Marketing Management. With the ever changing environment he decided to further his studies in the digital marketing field by completing an online course through the University of Cape Town. This allowed him to broaden his knowledge about marketing and sales.
Tebogo has experience working for Babcock Construction Equipment where he was one of three graduates to take part in the first graduate program provided by the company. This program acted as a mentorship introduction into the yellow-metal sector. Dealing directly with senior management of the different business units permitted him to gain invaluable insight into the running of operations.
Further experience was gained during Tebogo’s time working directly within the marketing world in the position of a business development manager where his objectives were to drive sales and chase new business opportunities.
Tebogo was appointed to represent Egelquip as our Sales & Marketing Director in 2016.
