TR A DE N EW S ••• • • • • Know your Certisure Broker PAUL ELS AUBREY KRUGER WHAT DO YOU DO AT CERTISURE? I work at Certisure on an agency-basis and am responsible for maintaining the short-term insur­ ance book in my area (Heilbron, Koppies, Parys, Vredefort, Sasolburg and Gauteng). HOW HAS YOUR CAREER PROGRESSED UNTIL NOW? I obtained my agricultural diploma, worked for eight years for Senwes Agricultural Development and then farmed for 16 years. In 2001 Senwes approached me to sell short-term and crop insurance on a part-time basis and I have obtained an agency from Certisure in the meantime. WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND GROW UP? In Heilbron. WHAT WERE YOUR PLANS AFTER SCHOOL? My vision was to farm. After my agricultural diplo­ ma I joined Senwes Agricultural Development. Then I farmed on a partnership basis after which I conti­ nued on my own. HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR FUTURE WITH THE COMPANY? Certisure offers challenging development opportuni­ ties and equipped me to render professional service and advice. THE BEST ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUR CLIENTS? Make sure that you comply with all your policy pro­ visions and know exactly what you are insured for. Do business with a broker with integrity, who will walk the extra mile. WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME? I love hunting and I am restoring my house at pres­ ent. FAMILY? I have been married to Petra for 38 years. We have been blessed with a son, PJ (32) and a daughter Welme (25). We also have a grandson, Jovan (4). Contact him at 058 852 3042, 082 8 06 9371, or e-mail Antoinette.els@certisure.co.za.
