Internal Promotion – John van Wyk



John’s career in the private security industry started 30 years ago in 1988, after serving in the Military (Full Corporal).  With his first job in the private sector being that of a probationer (no rank), his commitment and passion soon saw him progressing through the ranks. By November 2005 John went from a Supervisor position, to Area Manager and then to Training Co-Ordinator and qualified Assessor/Moderator.


Showing enormous potential over the next 10 years, John rose up the ladder and served in various portfolios, including a stint as Branch Manager, and Aviation Manager, earning the Golden Horse Professional award and three caps for service excellence.  In 2017 Thorburn approached him to join the company as an Operations Manager in KZN.  In the short space of time since that fortuitous appointment, John has been awarded the CEO’s award for service excellence and has recently been appointed as Regional Manager for the Southern Region, based in the Western Cape.


John is a shining example of how far one can go by applying oneself consistently, taking pride in the job and constantly striving to do better.  Nothing gives us more fulfillment at Thorburn, than to play a part in the development and recognition of potential.  We have many such success stories to tell.


Please join us in congratulating John on his success.
