Christelle Jonker

Christelle Jonker

Business Administrator

It’s almost impossible to define the value that Christelle, the Business Administrator, brings to the company. With 20 years of admin experience, 16 of which were in the financial services field, she is so much more than what her title implies. With a solid understanding of good governance, she is fiercely correct with numbers and helps the company adhere to its regulatory requirements. She seems to get the myriad general office admin tasks out of the way at the speed of a rocket, all while supporting her team members, and then seems to have time to switch on her creative brain to think of ways she can improve what is already in place. One such idea is currently being developed into an app that will have a dramatic impact on the company’s ability to service its customers. Need some help with marketing adverts? Bring it on. Worth her weight in gold, is our Christelle.
