Testimonial Tuesday – Fanie van Heerden and Anton Joubert, Express Durban North
Meet franchise owners of Express Durban North, Anton Joubert and Fanie van Heerden and read their encouraging story since partnering with Express Employment Professionals.
“As experienced bankers at the time, we both joined the Express Family and as business partners, in the Express Durban North office 20 years ago.
Starting the business with 2 only staff members at the time, we managed to grow the business over the years into one of the BIGGER offices in the Express group and today we have now employed 11 staff members.
Our business is mainly derived from the manufacturing-and warehousing industries in and around Durban.
The following principles contributed to our success story:
1. Continuously keep one’s hand on operating costs and not only in times when business gets tough
2. Surround oneself with the best staff possible
3. Follow the tried and tested Express recipe principles
4. Remember, as a business owner, you are the “engine” on your business – you are the “trigger”. You need to make things happen, do not wait on someone else. Lead by example.
