This is how we started…
The VITALIS brand began in the spring of 2015 as a small business consulting firm in the city of Tshwane. It is important for you, the entrepreneur, to focus on what you are great at, serving your customers. We serve you by being a single contact for all your professional services needs.
Tiaan started his career in the business turnaround space as a result of what his father experienced. When he turned 14, his father’s first big solo venture went through a liquidation after operating for only 18 months. This experience had a profound impact on him and how he saw the business world.
The experience ignited his passion for understanding the inner workings of the business world and consequently drove his need to understand how organisations operate. Tiaan learnt the rules of entrepreneurship from his father and grandfather and remembers their favourite saying:
“You need to understand what money is and how it works, only then can you build”
Tiaan first wanted to become a chemical engineer after attending an engineering week at the University of Stellenbosch. His father had other ideas of what the future had in store and enrolled him for an Accounting degree at the then UPE, now known as the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. Although he was not too happy about the decision, Tiaan soon realised that the world of finances intrigued him a lot.
This is how we grew…
Tiaan’s journey in the financial sector took him on a path to finish his M.B.A. at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. Here the subject of Entrepreneurship most of all sparked his interest in the knowledge of growing a venture from humble beginnings to a large corporate.
He realised early on in order to grow a business successfully, you have to get the right people on your team.
Our MD, Tiaan Geel, quickly identified the need for a comprehensive business services offering. Over the course of almost 2 years, he approached many entrepreneurs with his concept of a comprehensive business offering. He wanted to expand the VITALIS brand and service businesses with like minded partners.
Many entrepreneurs were asked to join the idea of building something bigger. Unfortunately, very few entrepreneurs were actually interested in sharing resources and skills to build a bigger business. Finally, in early 2017, Tiaan found the right partners for the businesses, and so the group grew.
This is what we do for you…
