Goodbye My Colleague, Goodbye My Friend


Today we are saying goodbye to Annelize Spies, our Operations and Marketing Manager. Annelize interviewed, got offered, signed and started all within 48 hours – we knew that she was a keeper. Although this is a very sad day for us, we are so honored to have had Annelize as a part of our team for the past year. Annelize was the glue who kept us all together, and today we would like to say thank you. Thank you for every smile, for your patience, for going above and beyond to always help us, for putting up with our lame jokes and quirks, and for your amazing work ethic.

Who is Annelize outside of the office?

Annelize recently got engaged to Niel Fourie. Niel is a successful developer in Stellenbosch – she clearly has an interest in the tech industry. 🙂 Annelize is our little energizer bunny, if she is not making hand stands in the office, she is running on the promenade. Annelize is the type of person who will light up any room, she has a big heart and will always help where she can. We really learnt a lot from you Annelize, and we know that you will always spread light and love wherever you should go.

Annelize is joining an exciting Stellenbosch start up called Custos Media Technologies, and we wish her the best of luck with her new venture.
