Petrus Wessels

Talent Consultant

Like many in South Africa, I grew up in a rural region (where it is said even the birds fly upside down because there is nothing to see for miles). 

I knew from an early age that I would move to a big city like Cape Town, where it bends the city life style with gorgeous landscape of mountains, beaches and vineyards. 

Based in our trendy red brick offices in the Silicon Cape I focus on anything data; this can range from business intelligence and data governance to data engineering & analytics.

I absolutely love working within the data market, because the field is developing so quickly and there seems to be new ways of manipulating and managing data every day.  It is very exciting to be part of the development of Data Science in South Africa, and I strive to not only research the topic but take part in discussions with individuals on the ground in the industry to get insight on their experience in the field of Data Science and where the industry is growing.

Outside of the office I blend between the nerdy and active side. I love reading and writing and anything to do with historical events while keeping active in a CrossFit Box every week.
