Kevin Coetzee, operations director at Humble Grape, is CODE’s August Employee of the Month. Kevin Coetzee is Operations Director at Humble Grape
An all-round awesome person who oozes hospitality, Kevin has overseen Humble Grape’s extraordinary growth with excitement and enthusiasm. He looks to motivate, educate & inspire, with the best organisational skills in the business, and never without a smile.
I realised that I wanted a career in hospitality when I stopped dreaming of becoming a fruit farmer in South Africa (now I drink those wonderful fruit thanks to Humble Grape) and was working in a restaurant when my brother suggested I study hospitality and make it my career, so I attended Granger Bay Hotel School and the rest is history!
I came to travel the world, enhance my career and leave a slightly uncertain South Africa at the time.
I wanted to join Humble Grape due to the vision that was shared by James Dawson (owner) and by the philosophy and ethos of the company, supporting small and wonderful wine producers!
CHAR – DO – Naay!
My Parents inspire me with their kind approach to people and humanity. Furthermore I am generally inspired by anyone who is prepared to stand up for positive change.
If it was my last meal on that island it would have to be a braai (bbq) followed by some malva (hard to describe) pudding. Visit Cape Town to experience both of these in abundance.
It has to be Humble Grape (of course) but if I had to head elsewhere it would be Hawksmoor…for the love of steak.
A big thank you to our friends at Ned’s Club Spa for providing Kevin’s prize of a Cowshed massage and day at the spa.
