Deon joined Wilson Wright in February 2015, after spending 6 years at a Top 20 practice in London. He originates from the “rainbow nation” of South Africa and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2008.
Deon’s training and audit experience was obtained largely in the developing province of the Eastern Cape, South Africa. His experience covers a wide range of both established as well as emerging industries, including small and medium manufacturing entities, retail and fast moving consumer goods, civil and domestic construction, and professional practices. Client advisory and the maintenance of on-going and educational relationships with clients and staff were a key element in Deon’s training and subsequent client and practice management experience.
Deon obtained further valuable experience as a senior audit manager in London, before joining Wilson Wright. He specialised in property investment, mineral resource exploration and equipment manufacture.
At home Deon trades work in for the open road and a pair of running shoes or a bike. When England’s weather gets the better of him though, then like any true South African he’ll settle for watching sport.
