Brad is a thirty something computer nerd now living in the beautiful city of Durban South Africa. He has been interested in technology from before he can remember, this may be due to the fact that his fiery red hair and pale skin was not a fan of the cancerous sun. While other kids would be churning up beach sand and not getting freckles and sun stroke Brad would be ripping apart his families IBM XT. His parents got him his own PC at the age of 10 which was an awesome 486 DX4 100Mhz 32 MB RAM, the rest as they say is history.
Brad has worked in the USA and the UK in different IT fields and now focuses on Microsoft Technologies notably SharePoint in his professional career. In South Africa he has gained incredible experience working with many world class clients such as Vodafone, Vodacom, Western Cape Government, Cape Union Mart, acsis, Coronation, Petro SA and Capitec to name a few.

A founding member of GTconsult, Annelie is a strong willed, focused professional woman in a male dominated IT world. She never planned on being in IT and always dreamed of being in the medical field.
She is a natural with numbers and understanding of how IT fits together. As a woman in IT, she gives us grace, blunts our nerdy appearance and makes us all together better at what we do with her fresh perspective and kind and understanding approach to any situation.
Annielie is GTconsult’s CFO and manages all financial aspects for GTconsult and subsidiaries under the umbrella company.
He finds researching the latest technology on offer and applying the knowledge gained to different environments very satisfying especially if it means that the solution will provide his colleagues and clients with simpler ways of resolving challenging scenarios or with more insight to make productivity of the environment more streamlined.
Grant has been in the IT industry ever since returning from a backpacking adventure throughout Europe back in 1991, if you do the math that’s quite a long time in the technology business which he loves. His first sales role was with a small IT company selling PC, printers and networking services which gave him a firm grounding and develop his selling skills. Fast forward to the present date and looking back at Grant’s experience one will see a fork in his career where he started to focus on providing services and solutions to his customers across most industry verticals. Those that get to know Grant will say that he is an “Active Listener” and has the ability to place himself in his customers shoes and deliver based on what the customer actually requires….his wife on the other hand says he has selected hearing but that’s another discussion all together.
Grant immigrated to the UK back in 2009 during the financial crisis even though his family and friends told him to wait until the global market stabilised. A deep belief in his abilities and what the future held for him in the UK has proved to be a the right decision as can be seen with him being appointment as the Sales Director for GTconsult in the UK.
On a lighter note Grant is an avid MotoGP fan and Fly Fisherman, so if you ever need someone to go to the races or to go and do a bit of fishing you know who to call.
“I am extremely excited about being appointed as GTconsult’s UK Sales Director as this next chapter for GTconsult’s is just the first step in our aggressive growth strategy for the UK. Our first priority is to firstly ensure that we provide a local presence to support and manage our existing and loyal customers but also to ensure GTconsult has the foothold for our UK growth plans. Our strategic partners are also pleased to see our commitment to the UK market and are already helping us with achieve our goals through various marketing activities and introducing GTconsult to their customers.”
