Roy is our big picture thinker, business and strategy brain. With a successful career in the South African Navy spanning 21 years, several medals and distinctions, an MBA and with a growing family, Roy decided it was time to spread his wings into business. In 2006 he retired from the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) as a full commander to begin a career in the private sector. That has since given rise to Green Cell Technologies, a company that is breaking barriers, preconceptions, and forging new ground in biotech. Roy, who has earned an unwavering reputation as a trusted and principled business man in Africa, has created and patented future-leading tech on a number of fronts, including safeguarding food security – for the world.
