The Avontus® team is delighted to welcome Riaan as our new Sales Development Representative! Riaan is based in Durban, South Africa, and is here to service our growing market in the region. Riaan is available to discuss Avontus suite of scaffold design and management software and provide in-depth product demonstration to companies looking to win more contracts and execute them more profitably.
With 25 years’ worth of industry experience, Riaan has broad scaffold expertise. He started as an erector, then moved into site and project management, before taking on various managerial roles. Safe to say – Riaan is deeply passionate about all things scaffolding, from its erection to completion.
Outside of his work life, Riaan is a doting family man. He and his wife Hannah have two children, 11-year-old daughter Rihane and 8-year-old son, Adriaan. The family has a love for the outdoors and can be found swimming, ice skating, playing golf, or hiking during spare time (Riaan himself plays hockey!). He also enjoys cooking but reserves the grill for Hannah most of the time.
With his extensive background in scaffolding as both a trade and a business, Riaan aspires to help companies in South Africa and beyond to become safer and more productive using Avontus products. Welcome to the team, Riaan!
