BT-SA has appointed Pieter van Wyk to the position of senior manager: fire and security. Van Wyk joined BT-SA in 2013 as a junior project leader in the fire and security division, at which time he came to the company with a technical background with experience in supervising the installation and programming of fire and security products.
“Pieter’s rise through the ranks has been extremely impressive, though not all surprising,” said Erik Jordaan, director of BT-SA. “He is a charismatic and motivated leader, whose enthusiasm for the industry is reflected in the depth of knowledge and expertise he has acquired in this field in a relatively short time.”
That expertise coupled with his solutions-driven approach to the design of projects and customer service-level agreements, are what make Van Wyk such a successful salesman, while his leadership skills and expert mentorship of his team make him a gifted manager.
“In this industry, where no one-size-fits-all, a position like this requires an agile mind with a keen ability for problem solving, and Pieter certainly fits that bill. His hands-on experience in the field as a technician moreover gives him the ability to see beyond the obvious and develop simple, effective solutions for complex environments,” added Jordaan.
He is a member of the PSiRA, SAQCC and FDIA industry associations, and also holds certifications in fire suppression and detection, CCTV and access control hardware and software, and perimeter security.
