Petrie van Zyl

Despite having originally studied Information Technology at Cape Tech, Petrie decided to pursue a career in sales and marketing. Starting as a sales consultant he rose to become the youngest sales manager at the time for one of the leading clubs in the fitness industry in South Africa.

Yet IT remained his passion, Petrie decided to combine his inclination and his passion for working with clients and providing top level service. He joined Dial a Nerd in 2007 as a sales consultant for the business division, advising clients on the best way to maximise the output of their IT infrastructure.

He took the position of Branch manager in 2010 and has since overseen the consolidation of all the Cape Town branches.

Petrie believes that a fantastic client experience is the key to any successful business.
