Jacques joined us as Business Development Manager in 2021 with strong logistics, purchasing and operational management credentials. With a BEc degree in Logistics, he has worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes. Turning his expertise towards sales and sales development 3 years ago, he thrives on the challenge of finding new possibilities and customers.

As Business Development Manager within our dynamic sales team, Jacques brings a pro-active, responsible, and creative approach. Organised, confident and enthusiastic, Jacques has a thirst for knowledge and is always looking to find out what’s new in the industry.

Being a partner to our customers, and not only a supplier, is key for Jacques. For him, it’s about listening and working closely to help find the right solution. ‘Our customers need to be worry-free, and confident their pharmaceuticals and medicines will be safe with us.’

Outside of the office Jacques likes nothing more than to be cycling or mountain biking or simply relaxing with friends and family – ideally around a barbeque with a good glass of wine!

“Above all, I believe in respect, honesty, responsibility, and treating the other person in a way you want to be treated yourself.”

 My Favourite Innovator

Steve Jobs – pioneer of the personal computer, co-founder of Apple Inc and a ‘global cultural guru’ according to Fortune magazine, responsible for changing the way the world works and plays. His vision of how your work can have meaning for society, his drive for perfection in everything he touched completely revolutionised 6 industries – phones, music, animation films, PCs, tablets, and digital publications. “Innovation makes the difference between a leader and a follower.”
