Marketing & Growth
Charl has over 20 years’ experience in brand building, business communication and copywriting. After graduating from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University with an Honours Degree in Industrial & Economic Sociology and Development Studies, he started his career working on large public sector change management projects. Recognising the critical role clear communication played in these Projects, Charl turned his attention to Corporate Communication, writing a Master’s Thesis on Quality Assurance in Corporate Branding.
Following this, and almost a decade in the coatings industry, Charl founded his own Brand Communication business in 2010 assisting B2B clients in creating and building brands, developing communication strategies and as a technical copywriter. Counting RES amongst some of his early clients, Charl spent the next ten years working for clients in the financial, engineering, retail, tech, chemicals, tourism, plastics and mineral industries. Over this period, he co-founded an award-winning Social Enterprise addressing food security in underdeveloped urban areas and also an investment fund focused on developing opportunities in emerging markets.
In 2021 Charl joined RES as its Marketing and Communication Manager, relishing the opportunity to help make RES the most sought-after mineral exploration company to work with and to work for.
