Nigel has an intense interest in history and a desire to see Magaliesburg prosper. He has managed to combine these two to make a difference, albeit a very tiny difference.
He, together with the help of others, has managed to resurrect the Magaliesburg Historical Society. Nigel also represents Magaliesburg’s interests on the West Rand Development Agency’s (“WRDA”)’ project to bring international and local tourists to the greater Magaliesberg area.
The South African War (more commonly known as the Boer War) has been chosen as the first vehicle to achieve this. The project is now at the stage where the Business Plan has been completed, project launched officially, and government and other sources are being approached for funding. Once finding is obtained, the project will be brought to the MBF actioning of the component affecting Magaliesburg.
Nigel studied geology at UPE, but never practiced geology and went into computing instead, spending 10 years with IBM, before going out contracting, and then joining the banks and spending over 14 years with ABSA. The changing dynamics of the South Africa workplace led Nigel to become an Independent Contractor again doing project management for the large financial intuitions, specialising in IT, Banking and Regulatory projects. He also has a master’s degree from Wits University.
Currently Nigel is semi-retired and has a small farm in Koesterfontein and is busy turning it from a lifestyle farm to a working farm.
My Name is Leonie van Greunen. I am a widow and have been a resident of Broederstroom for the past 23 years.
My Son & Daughter and their families stay in close proximity of me and I am the proud granny of 2 of the cutest and most intelligent boys.
I was the secretary for the management of a company from 1981-1985 when my son was born aftger which, for the next 17 years, I was a mum and home executive until 2002. At this time I took over a small ice-cream & sweet shop in Brits. Tt was just a time pass whilst my children were busy with extra mural activities in Brits and within a year I bought another ice-cream shop and became part of the Brits business industry and I also joined the chamber of business committee.
in 2004 we were offered an opportunity to open a fuel station and just by managing the fuel station correctly, we were able to double our fuel liters per month.
In 2008 TOTAL decided to do a knock down rebuild, which meant that the station would be totally flattened and a new TOTAL would be built with a Steers and a Car-wash. This meant that I had to buy the Steers in town to allow the Steers to open at the station.
From this point my businesses branched out to fast food industry. The Steers was revamped and got a Fishaways and then shortly after a Debonairs and again a Steers.
In 2015 I decided to scale down and sold all the Fast food businesses yet after 15 years I am still very involved in the day-to-day operations of the fuel station.
