Where our succession planning started: the 99er Cycle Tour

Succession: Our Plan in Action

14 years ago during the same cycle race – 78 km – as today – I suffered a major heart attack. The school, El Shaddai, who hosts this event as a fundraiser every year – was amazing after I was hospitalised 14 years ago with only 15% blood througflow – all 5 arteries were clogged up at age 42. I underwent a 9 hour quadruple bypass op and the school held two days of special prayer sessions for my recovery. So every year Pétanque gives a prize to the last woman crossing the finishing line at cut-off time in gratitude for the fast action in accurate diagnosis, getting me to hospital super fast and praying for my recovery. My recovery was such a gift that in the past 14 yrs, I rode this race again 11 times.

Why the last woman? Because we cannot all be winners, but we can all participate in life. Being last means you participated, persevered and made the finish line in time – it was difficult but one did it!

 Michélle Booysen, February 2018

We have reached what can be called our “Bill Gates Moment” in the company: through expansion and growth Pétanque has evolved and we are pleased to now introduce you to our newly appointed CEO, Justin Siljeur.

Michélle will be handing over the day-to-day operations to Justin as she moves into a more strategic planning position to further our international expansion.

MJ will be moving over to our sister company, TenStepZA, as Managing Partner to lead the company into its exciting new phase.

We are also pleased to welcome Damion Stander to the team as our new COO with a specific focus on strengthening our SME market offer.

Our 15th year is going to be a big one – looking forward to what the year will bring!
