The team here at The Panic Room Company is expanding once again this year with the appointment of Mark Oliver as our agent for South Africa.

Coventry-born Mark left the UK with his family for Cape Province in South Africa when he was 12 years-old. He was schooled in the country, completed his national service there and worked for a number of global brand retailers in senior management positions. Mark now divides his time between his homes in Bournemouth and St Helena Bay where he has recently built a beautiful beach-front property.

Commenting on Mark’s appointment, Paul Weldon, managing director of The Panic Room Company, said: “Mark’s extensive background in retail and sales, both here in the UK and in South Africa, combined with his broad knowledge of real estate and construction in South Africa make him the ideal person to have ‘on the ground’ in the country.

“Mark has taken the time to fully understand our objectives and shares our ethics of delivering the very highest quality products and solutions with unrivalled customer service – I’m delighted to welcome him to the business.”

Concludes Mark: “I’m excited by the opportunity afforded me to represent The Panic Room Company in South Africa. There is huge scope to further develop business in the country and maximise our potential amongst our various target markets.”
