About Gerhard.

A registered Chartered Accountant at the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants, Mr Malan has vast experience, including as Financial Director of one of South Africa's leading IT Distribution companies, Rectron, a fully owned subsidiary of a JSE listed company.

For the past 3 years he has served as CFO of Viadex Ltd, an IT services company focusing on managed services and global supply chain, headquartered in the UK, where he gained experience in global compliance and expansion.

I am very pleased to join Sybrin, and I bring over 12 years' experience as a Finance Director to my current role, alongside a passion for the discipline of analysing and explaining numbers to extract the critical information they carry, and the power they can bring to the business if properly curated and understood.
