Senior Protein Trader at SOL IOM
Employed since: 2004
Before working at Seaboard, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had? From 1991 to 2001 I worked on an island in Mozambique building a fishing resort. Other than some local fishermen who used it as a temporary fishing base, the island was deserted. Amongst the first jobs on landing on the island was to clear an area to build a bush camp, digging a well for drinking water, building a long drop, and setting up a radio antenna. We learnt very quickly that hammocks were a necessity for sleeping as the island was inhabited by vast numbers of rats and very big poisonous snakes. On 22 February 2000 while on the island by myself Cyclone Eline struck. I was woken up in the middle of the night after one of the poles my hammock was tied to had collapsed into the sea after huge waves had washed away a portion of the bank between the sea and the thatched Lapa, I was sleeping in. I can honestly say that there was not a day that went by on the island where I did not experience something that would not stay with me for the rest of my life.
What do you enjoy most about working for Seaboard or Location? My job is never boring as markets are always moving and there is always a new challenge for every day. The team of people that I work with on a day-to-day basis are fantastic and make working at Seaboard an absolute pleasure.
What’s your proudest moment while working at Seaboard or Location? In 2018 when we sold and shipped over 120,000 Metric tons of Sunflower pellets from Argentina to South Africa in a 3-month period without the competing crushers realizing what had happened, until the ships started landing in South Africa.

What surprised you most about the job or its location? The beauty of the isle of Man was probably what surprised us most when arriving for the first time on the island. We had never visted the island before packing up in South Africa and leaving to resettle on the island. I still remember the first drive off the ferry and along the old Castle Town road to the house we were renting. The whole family was so excited and the beauty of the old stone buildings with stone walls around the fields and tree lined country lanes just blew us away. As a family we love living in the Isle of Man as it has given us the chance to live on a small holding in the countryside within a easy drive to work.

What’s your proudest moment while working at Seaboard or Location? When I joined the operations team at my Location back in 2011, the magnitude of loss of assets, particularly inventory, was shockingly high. I joined in as Production Assistant with my main responsibilities being in the assessment of internal controls from receiving of raw materials to production and a bit on loading. My daily tasks included checking the receipts against the intake scale to ensure we actually pay for what has been received in the silos, checking production input into the system for authenticity for both the mills and warehouses data input, independent scale reading recording as well as warehouse daily stock take. I am very proud to have issued out recommendations on the internal controls improvements and I have seen the biggest improvement in the integrity of our reporting. In addition, it is still yet a very vulnerable area that needs continuous improvements and a great deal of monitoring.
What important values do you think Seaboard or Location delivers on? Job security, growth and exposure for individual employees. Being a nutrition vital player and its role in food security for the nation is another important deliverable.
