Retief Ueckermann

Retief is a Chartered Accountant and Management Consultant.  On invitation by Schalk Burger (Chairman of Shiloh Synergy) he paid the Klipheuwel School a visit. He was struck by how children’s lives are changed holistically, by providing world class education in world class facilities and instilling a value system that prepares them for life. Moreover, these children who cannot afford such education, are given hope and a chance in life.  He believes that Shiloh understands the real meaning of Upliftment and has the answer to make a positive difference in a human being’s life, never to be the same again.  Retief has been passionately involved in Shiloh ever since, and he became a director on 18 August 2014.
