position themselves as market leaders by welcoming Van der Westhuizen on
board. Being a well known sports' icon, Van der Westhuizen has shown his
commitment to his game, proving his dedication to the team and all South
Africans and that he is not afraid of hard work, which is exactly what
PIH is going to take advantage of in growing their business.

PIH are excited to have Van der Westhuizen as part of their new
structure, bringing his strong leadership and management skills to the
table. He also shares the same values of honesty, integrity and ethics
