Hannes Spangenberg


Brand Manager | KWV

Hannes is currently completing his MBA at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business, and plans to focus his dissertation on the rising start-up ecosystem in the greater Cape Town area. It is in the wine industry, doing international marketing and sales, that he cut his teeth, working with over 20 wine brands in 30 countries, of which Casillero del Diablo (Concha y Toro) and Roodeberg (KWV) are the most prominent. Besides his business background he also has a passionate creative side, receiving his Honours degree Cum Laude in performing arts directing as well as the award for best student director. He feels confident that his creative and business background complement each other well, especially in this rapidly changing world.
