Member Profile

Galiem Jacobs started his career in the paint industry as a paint technician in 1977 and since then he worked himself to the top until he was appointed as a technical director at a leading company. Whilst still a paint technician, Galiem studied analytical chemistry on a part time basis at the Peninsula Technikon. As he did not get the satisfaction that he wanted from his job, he decided to resign as technical director and that is when Mandalay Coatings in Parow came into being.

Galiem started his business in 1996 with his wife and only two other employees and now he has 13 people working for him. Realising the need to further educate  himself, he has done various other business courses.

In 1999, he was honoured by WECBOF as the Business Person of the Year and in 2000, he was again honoured as the SANLAM Business Person of the Year.
