Not-So-Risky Business

Number crunching, spreadsheets, and customer relations define most of my day. With over 20 years of experience in the field of credit control and finance, I’ve learnt how to keep the risks for SMEs at bay. Finance targets aside, my focus is on overall customer satisfaction and creating fruitful relationships with stakeholders within the business.

For me, the most important thing to keep in mind would be the risks associated with granting credit to the South African SME market. In our current state of economy, many third-party factors affect smaller enterprises. These businesses can and should be properly protected from risk. That’s where I come in.
