Together with the competence of the Lords View team, Warwick created the vision of what has become Lords View today. He studied Financial Accounting at Stellenbosch University and worked for KPMG, acquiring his CA (SA).
His qualification, people skills, and development knowledge were further mentored by the late Alan Hendriks, who helped guide the development of Lords View.
His ability to set goals, assemble a strong team, lead its attainment, and build and maintain key relationships has made him the proud owner of one of the most desired industrial parks in the Gauteng market and country. This has helped confidently rank Lords View as the best industrial park in South Africa. Warwick’s thirst for big achievements has now led him to a position to spearhead the Cato Ridge Inland Port development in KwaZulu Natal.
