We have added to our Client Service Team, IT Department and are proud to announce the appointment of two new EXCO members: Anisa Du Plessis (Managing Director) and Leigh Pohl (Client Development Director).

Anisa joins us with an impressive CV. She hails from a marketing background with diverse experience in the service and financial service sector. She spent a number of years within the Absa group heading up the Branding, Sponsorship, Events and Strategy teams.

“Anisa has a love for Marketing and a flair for décor. She owns three décor shops in the Pretoria and Johannesburg areas and has recently opened her first coffee shop in Northcliff. Being able to combine the creative aspect of décor, with the analytical demands of marketing, makes Anisa the perfect mix of art and science, a formula that The Brand Union is proud to showcase in our everyday working environment,” says Swart.
