I have had the honour of working with Karlien for more than five years. Our industry was subject to serious market instability and this made our task of providing a service very difficult and had a negative effect on our employees. Despite the problems this presented in sourcing and keeping talented and experienced staff, Karlien guided the management team and me through these turbulent times with competence. She provided me with mentorship, assisting growth in my management skills and capabilities. Her support made my job much easier, and I always had the freedom to discuss my departmental challenges with her.
