Rick Grobler

I grew up in a small Lowveld mining town called Barberton. He has a 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter, as well as 2 dogs and a cat.

Rick has a Bachelors of Commerce (B.Comm) degree in HR Management. He also has a Post-graduate diploma in Labour Law and a Senior Paralegal Diploma.

He worked for employers in the mining and related industries and he was eventually promoted to the position of HR/IR Manager of Master drilling in 2012.

He joined UASA after he heard that UASA is known to act in the best interest of its members. This was one of the primary motivators for him to join the team.

Rick has been appointed to the position of Operational Manager in our Port Elizabeth office.

Welcome on board Rick.
