Position at Multotec: Managing Director of International Operations

Started At Multotec: 2003

Business Philosophy: If you're the most successful person in the room, find a new room.

Since joining Multotec in 2003, du Toit’s aim has been to create a long-term sustainable business platform for Multotec in Africa, from Central Africa expanding to West Africa, East Africa and Botswana. As the newly appointed managing director of international operations this now includes all international relations.

Du Toit, with a Masters in Engineering Management, oversees the 26 countries that Multotec operates in Africa working with a network of regional subsidiaries and agents to support a continuous growth strategy.

The most important lesson he has learned is that consistent, high-level customer support coupled with the ability to manage and absorb the challenges of the continent creates relationships that promote Multotec’s long-term sustainable business philosophy.

Multotec believes that “Africa is the Oyster” du Toit’s approach to business mirrors this.
