JD Gresse was employed as a Metallurgist at Axis House in November 2012.
Our immediate requirement in 2012 was to find a suitable person to streamline our technical sales and on-site testwork in Zambia and the DRC. As our company was in an extreme growing phase we needed reliable personnel with on-site flotation experience, the ability to identify our clients’ problems and to troubleshoot in a responsible manner with our clients.
JD came to Axis House with extensive work experience and it didn’t take long for us to know that our choice in colleague had been correct.
JD was exposed to many facets of the technical and metallurgical environments we work within and succeeded in all the tests and tasks he was given.
After a year as a travelling metallurgist D was promoted to country manager for the DRC and placed as an expat in the same country. He overlooked all technical aspects for our clients and worked closely with the sales team to meet our annual targets.
JD also oversaw a reagent mixing contract in the DRC where we employed over hundred staff on a client’s processing site.
After 18 months in the DRC JD moved back to Cape Town and took on the role of flotation manager in the Axis House laboratory.
Within the five years of working at Axis House, JD has grown to be a reliable team member that completely grasped our concept of doing business, what is important to Axis House and he became a central part of our team.
We highly recommend D to anyone looking for flotation consultant and we wish him all the best in his new venture.
