A financial man who can decorate – that’s our Jan. The life and soul of the party – even when the pressure’s on – he can still see the lighter side of life. While Jan manages the budgets and schedules that’s not to say he doesn’t offer creative input, in fact, he usually has the final say!


Jan was the recipient of the Young Businessman of the Year in 1982. In 1991; he became the first person to introduce imported professional quality décor into the South African décor market.
