On 23 April 2018, we welcomed Arné Bester in our Corporate Governance Department. Arné obtained her BA Law degree at Stellenbosch University in 2011. She worked at BGR Broodryk Kotzé in Wellington in the Company Secretarial Department while studying LL.B through UNISA. In 2015, she obtained her LL.B degree, joined Moore Stephens Cape Town in their corporate governance division and decided to continue her studies to obtain her chartered secretary qualification through the Institute of Chartered Secretaries (“CSSA”).
In June, we welcomed two new employees at ASL.
Inge Heath joined our team as estate advisor. Inge obtained her Bachelors of Law (BA LL.B) degree at Stellenbosch University in 2006 and completed her articles as candidate attorney at Wilson Morkel Basson Inc. in December 2008. She was admitted as an attorney of the High Court in February 2009. Inge has vast experience in the drafting of wills as well as the estate administration process.
Margo Plaatjies was appointed as accountant in ASL. She obtained her B.Com degree at Stellenbosch University. Although she is originally from Oudtshoorn, she fell in love with Stellenbosch and decided to complete her SAIPA learnership at LDP. In 2017 she passed her board examination and qualified as a professional accountant.
Jacqueline Peach, the newest member of the ASL team, started in July as a debtors clerk. She has 12 years’ experience in the motor industry as a debtors clerk, where she not only obtained experience in the field, but also learnt that team work is the secret to success. She is originally from Johannesburg, but her roots are now firmly planted in Cape Town.
We trust that these four will find their feet quickly within ASL and we wish them all the best on this new journey. We look forward to the knowledge and experience that they bring to our team.
Reinhard Sieberhagen and Lenita van der Merwe tied the knot on 5 June 2018 in Riebeek Kasteel. Lenita and Reinhard’s relationship started at ASL while they were both trainees. May the years ahead be filled with love and joy!
New additions to the ASL “extended family”
We congratulate Adrian de Geus, who became a father on 25 January 2018. As new parents may you and your wife be filled with much joy and happiness with the arrival of your baby girl, Ava. We wish the new de Geus family all the very best!
