The Goodwood team
Prior to Pieter’s employment with Goodwood, he had 5 years extensive experience working for a large company in the Waste and Recycling industry. Pieter has been the General Manager at Goodwood for well over a year now, and in that time has grown the team to help the company achieve its recycling goals and initiatives. Pieter and his wife have recently become first-time parents to a little baby girl. She must be a good baby because we haven’t caught Piet napping at his desk yet!
Richard is one of the founder’s and it is his vision that has been responsible for shaping Goodwood into the business it is today. Richard’s primary role is to support Pieter, the General Manager, to always ensure Goodwood is making a true difference in the world. Having started the business he has a hands-on understanding of the wood recycling industry. Richard is passionate about leaving a legacy for future generations and wants to help as many people as possible along the way.
Bill is one of the founders of Goodwood and has an in-depth knowledge of the everyday workings of the business. He has an extensive Dairy farming background. Bill specialises in all things Animal Bedding which is manufactured by Goodwood and sold and distributed through Goodwood’s Animal Bedding brand Bonnie the Cow. When he’s not out selling Animal Bedding to the Dairy Industry he spends his time out on the golf course perfecting his game and getting his handicap down!
