With their business and working with people being their passion, Steven le Roux, Chris Cloete and their team have been successfully running Nissi Risk Management in the city since 2000.
This is a local business that offers armed reaction, guarding, alarm systems, rural and agricultural security solutions, and much more. This well-oiled machine is run on the values of empowering relationships, passion, and taking ownership of what you do.
Get It Bloemfontein had the opportunity to sit down with Steven and Chris to hear what their recipe for success is, as well as how they juggle family life and business.
Both of them consider family a very important life anchor and when they are not at work Steven could be found spending time with his family, being on the open road on his Harley-Davidson or enjoying a good steak at a local restaurant. Chris could be found on the golf course, watching sport or spending time with his children.
Being the managing director of the company, Steven says that he believes that it is important to always continue working on your skills set, taking interest in your staff, and because the world is ever-changing one should always try to improve one’s product. He defines success as being content with where you are in your life and with what you have achieved.
The business boasts close relationships with their clients as they believe that each one of their clients have different needs and that can only be catered for with personal relationships.
Chris, who is the operations manager, says that their business is their passion and they aim to ensure safer communities and place extra emphasis on the safety of vulnerable communities and businesses – such as farmers. He explained that in the upcoming months their business will be utilising more effective technology, as well as expanding.
Both say that they have nothing but thankfulness for the people of Bloemfontein for the support that has been shown to Nissi over the years.
