Boasting vast experience in leadership roles both in South Africa and abroad, Cecil is well-placed to steer the Goscor Lift Trucks business to new heights. A mechanical engineering technologist by profession, Cecil also holds an MBA from Bond University.
He joined GLTC from Babcock in early 2020, where he held several leadership positions across several business disciplines, including engineering, business development and transport – for 14 years of his career. Prior to that, Cecil worked for APV, where he rose through the ranks to become MD of the company’s South African business, before he joined APV’s global team in Germany.
In some of these roles, Cecil displayed undisputed competence in turning unprofitable businesses into cash cows, and setting them on a sustainable growth path – an attribute that made him the perfect fit for the GLTC managing directorship.
Away from work, Cecil enjoys spending time with his family and friends. His great passion for motorsport is exhibited by his support for his sons’ involvement in the one-make VW Polo GTi Cup Championship. Both sons race for the Total Excellium team – always keeping him at full throttle.
