Warren Bennett

Personal Bio & CV

In the ever changing business and project landscape, Warren achieves work-life balance through his sports and family. A passionate fisherman, Warren spends as much time as possible out on the ocean taking in all of its serenity and beauty whilst targeting the biggest and toughest pelagic game fish our coastline has to offer! More recently his son has been joining him on some of these amazing adventures into the deep blue, returning with some amazing fish to share with family and friends around a good old fashioned South African braai. When the ocean is inaccessible due to adverse conditions, you will find Warren either in the gym, or, being the massive food enthusiast he is, enjoying some delicious food with his wife either at home or at one of his favourite local restaurants.
