Our liaison to Southern Africa
Seemingly an outdoors enthusiast by profession, Eckhart is a business development specialist. Having graduated in economics from Stellenbosch University in South Africa, he joined the Foreign Service and was posted on consecutive four-year missions to Bonn and Washington DC respectively. In Washington, he served as Environmental Attache, working primarily with the United States Congress and international environmental organisations. Upon return to South Africa, he consulted for overseas companies entering the African market and served as Senior Business Development Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa in the Johannesburg office of the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade). He is the founding director of EnviroWorks and, when not on safari or working on conservation projects in South Africa and neighbouring countries, devotes his time to raising public awareness for nature & wildlife conservation and global environmental issues.
