It is a challenging operating environment, and Marais’ passion, energy, and focus on doing what is best for the group set her up well to continue the company’s growth trajectory,” adds Baloyi.  

The company is rewarding Marais after she’s been with the company since 1990. She also holds an MBA with Honours from the International Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, Switzerland, in addition to a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of the Free State.
