Directors and Shareholders - South Africa
Director & Shareholder
University of Pretoria (South Africa)
PrEng, CEng, BEng (Civil)
Stefan is a highly skilled engineer who draws on a wealth of experience gained in the engineering industry over the past 25 years. He has been involved on every level of planning, design and management on various diverse and complex civil engineering projects throughout Africa and Europe.
Stefan’s engineering journey began in his late teens, on the highlands of Lesotho. His father’s company was busy producing an educational film for a leading engineering consultancy, featuring the Lesotho Highland Water Scheme, for which he was assistant cameraman. This experience exposed him to the world of Civil Engineering and shortly after returning from Lesotho, Stefan was awarded a bursary at the same Engineering company.
Following the completion of his studies (PrEng, CEng, BEng (Civil)) at the University of Pretoria, Stefan started out working on airport infrastructure projects including a greenfield construction of the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and various expansion projects on Lanseria and OR Tambo airports. Four years later, after gaining significant experience on those projects, Stefan & Hester were married and they decided to move to the United Kingdom. While living in the UK, Stefan was involved in various airport projects in Northern Ireland, Manchester and some large-scale projects on London Gatwick, Stanstead and Heathrow Airports.
After a rewarding 4-year stay in the United Kingdom, Stefan and his wife returned to South Africa where he joined a new start-up company. He expanded his experience by working on a variety of mine infrastructure projects as well as airport projects in South Africa. This opportunity allowed him to gain valuable experience in growing a small ‘start-up’ consultancy business, which gave him the confidence to start his own consultancy firm.
In August of 2010, Nurizon was founded with great support from his family, and – from the start – his family has always remained his first love and priority. He set out with the vision of becoming a deliverable based business. With this in mind, he offered his team every opportunity to embrace ownership of their roles within the company and this has played a significant role in creating the business environment within Nurizon today.
With Nurizon established in South Africa and managed by his business partner (John Le Roux) Stefan, and his family returned to the United Kingdom to establish Nurizon International. After three years, the UK company was up and running with an established team. Stefan, Hester and their 3 children, decided to return to their roots in South Africa, and settle in Pretoria.
In addition to spending quality time with his family and managing his business, Stefan also enjoys all sports, photography, theatre and traveling. His favorite cuisine remains either a fine grilled steak or any Indian cuisine paired with a good South African wine or a speyside single malt whiskey.

Ambassador Gladys Kudjoe (Sonto)
Having worked with the South African Government since 1997, her career has been primarily around the issues on the African Continent. Her role in Foreign Affairs, now known as Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) had been to lead on African related issues focussing on the drafting of Government Policies with other African countries, Regional Economic Communities and the African Union (AU). It is this role in Government at strategic and policy levels which had enabled her to have an in-depth understanding of political, social, economic and security situations on the African Continent.
Sonto also served as an Ambassador of South Africa to Sweden from 2002 – 2006 and as Ambassador of South Africa to Egypt from 2006 – 2010. In both these assignments her responsibility was to look for opportunities for South Africa and its businesses.
