He joined the CCID at its founding in 2000, as has served as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the last five years. During this time the CCID has been awarded the International Downtown Association (IDA) Award for Social Development in 2008, an IDA Downtown of the Month Award in 2009, and a CBD cleanliness award from the City of Cape Town in 2010, following the successful hosting of the 2010 World Cup in large part in the CCID area.
