Jacques, born in the beautiful little town Groot-fontein in Namibia has since childhood enjoyed dismantling and re-assembling any Mechanical object that he could find. This continued throughout his high school career and paved his thinking to study Mechanical Engineering. He, however, has always enjoyed a balanced approach to life and played Cricket for his community Club and has remained a keen fisherman who loves the ocean.
Jacques achieved his final Engineering qualification with MAN Truck & Bus for whom he worked for several years before starting his own mechanical service centre. Although successful, Jacques has always had the desire to spread his wings and take on greater challenges.
Happily married to his wife Lorika and having a beautiful son, he remains a dedicated family man who can manage time away with quality time back home. This he believes will be the success of his dedication to his job with Hill Robinson.
