Gerda Van Wyk Operations Manager

I started my career in tourism about 13 years ago as a concierge in a hotel. I moved on to Operations Assistant for a small touring company. Experience gained there qualified me for a position at Thompsons as an Accounts Supervisor where I remained for 5 years before becoming the Operations Manager. I then moved within Cullinan Transport to Hylton Ross and iKapa Coaches as their Operations Manager. I am proud to have been part of the Cullinan Team for the last 10 years. Our industry is a passion, not just a job!

Lorna Simone Sales & Marketing

I love the travel industry and I’ve enjoyed being involved in the industry in a variety of different ways, from hotels and hospitality, to inbound and outbound travel. My experience has taken me to some amazing countries and I loved every exciting minute of it all, but the most exciting moments were usually when I disembarked from a flight, or a ship, or a train, and I could see Table Mountain and Table Bay. I love the vibrant sights and sounds of Cape Town, and of the rest of South Africa. I feel very privileged being able to work in an industry and in a country I love.

Drummond Murison Workshop Manager

I joined the Coach industry under the Springbok Atlas banner in 2014 after 25 years in the retail Motor industry. I have three sons and my eldest is 18. My passion is rock and surf angling, especially in the winter months. There is no better feeling than standing on the rocks in the rain fishing at Misty Cliffs, and watching Hylton Ross, Springbok Atlas and Ikapa coaches driving past full of tourists. When I wave to our drivers, everybody waves back.

Keon Daniels Marketing

I am a bright and happy 24 year old who has a passion for the tourism industry. I had the opportunity to go and study at Northlink College Tygerberg Campus. I enjoy going the extra mile for my clients and having started at Hylton Ross I have learnt so much about the travel and tourism industry, and I find the transport section very interesting. I have grown to love each and everyone in the office. I strive to live our company values to the best of my ability. So far working at Hylton Ross has been a pleasure, I am delighted to have the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of the industry I am passionate about.

Daniel Van Wyk Charter Consultant

My life in the coach industry started in 1994 straight after school when I worked  in the Intercity sector. Since then I’ve been involved in the coaching and tourism industry for nearly 12 years, and my passion is still as great as the day I started. There isn’t a thing I don’t know about our coaches and I’m proud to boast about it. I look forward to being of service to you for all your transportation and tourism needs.

Jacqui Le Sueur Branch Manager

I have always had a passion for tourism and I believe a person is at work 90% of your life so you need to enjoy what you do or you are wasting your time. My Career in tourism started with me travelling abroad for 2 years doing GATE projects. I was then a river guide for Felix Unite where I gained experience in the field and had the pleasure of combining my outdoor passion with working. I was then involved in operations for Flexi Wheels and have since then never left the “wheels” side of tourism. I have grown at Hylton Ross from Consultant to Marketing to operations Manager and now 14 years later Branch Manager. I like to think I have had experience in all the various divisions of our coaching company.

Henry Pienaar Operations / Charter Consultant

I come from a family of 5 brothers (one being a twin). My mother is a nurse and my father is a teacher. I like to think that people are just ‘my thing’, my passion! I’m a part time pastor and my ideal dream one day would be to be more involved with working in the ministry. I also love sports, especially soccer and I am an avid player. I have been in the tourism industry for the past 25 years. I joined the iKapa Coaches team in 2012. It has been quite a learning curve for me, but I love what I do.

Dale Jacobs Charter Consultant

Two years ago I started off as a porter at the Rockwell hotel and I assisted at the Concierge desk when needed. I slowly gained the knowledge and ability to operate at a Concierge desk and that allowed me the opportunity to liaise with clients at one of the biggest touring company’s travel desk, Hylton Ross Touring. Being in the right place at the right time, I turned out to be the right man! I was recruited by Hylton Ross Touring / iKapa Coaches into their head office where I am currently an Operations Consultant.
Within the space of two years I could do all this! It proves that if you put your heart and mind into achieving your dreams, anything is possible!
