The company was established on the 1st November 1988 by Jannie Snyman. Joe Van der Vyver joined a year later. Both were previously General Managers (Marketing) at Sanlam. At that stage, they had already accumulated 60 years of industry experience.
During visits to overseas companies, the founding partners gained valuable insight into what was then still a buzz word – “service”. Today, the word “service” is universally used but few companies can truly claim that their clients routinely experience good, quality service.
It is with a passion for delivering true service that Snyman & Van der Vyver was established. In fact, “service” was the single-minded purpose which drove the company forward and continues to shape our thinking and processes today.
We are blessed and humbled to be in a position to reflect on milestones in our journey.
For Snyman & Van der Vyver, the achievement of dreams fulfilled and the vision of a bright future can be attributed to one enduring and compelling value – a passion for service excellence.
