Sakkie de Bruyn

Financial Director

 Sakkie grew up as a farm boy in the Orange Free State and was educated at Grey College where his passion for sport developed. After school, he joined the South African Air Force where he flew jets until retiring as a Major to farm sugar in Pongola. After 20 years of farming he left to pursue his earlier calling – flying. For many years Sakkie was a senior captain flying in war torn countries: Kosovo, DRC, Sudan, Central African Republic and East Timor; finally Afghanistan for 9 years. These contracts were largely for the United Nations.  Two years ago he retired from a contract flying career but still remains active in the Red Cross (Air Mercy Service) as a volunteer pilot.

 Sakkie joined Sandy Wingfield-Turner & Associates (Pty) Ltd as a director in 2014 and oversees the accounting function, HR and is an all-around support within the company
