Pieter DeGunst

Managing Director

A whirlwind of ideas and constantly moving. That’s how most people would characterise Pieter, even after a brief encounter. His drive, energy, and the speed at which he thinks and talks strikes you immediately, as does his skill in blue-sky-thinking and tactical deep-diving. As a perceptive, passionate leader, he has an infectious enthusiasm for thinking around corners which means both he and the Tecala team are always searching for faster, more innovative ways to accelerate each client’s growth.

As a hands-on Managing Director, Pieter co-founded Tecala in 2008. Since then, he has strategically driven and inspired the company’s rapid growth while ensuring that we always place our people and customers at the heart of everything we do. He remains closely involved with clients and collaboratively leads a team of world-class talent who ensure each engagement delivers brilliant outcomes for everyone. His leadership style drives confidence not from above, but from within the team, and his forward-focus telegraphs across the company into a sense of certainty in our upward trajectory. Having spent his formative years in IT sales and technical support, Pieter developed a deep knowledge of technology, its opportunities, and its pitfalls. Repeatedly, his commercial and operational prowess was recognised in business development positions, where he pushed the usual boundaries and focused on the often overlooked areas of actually understanding the business requirements and providing a positive after-sale experience. This commitment was the foundling stage of creating Tecala’s focus on achieving outcomes that exceed expectations which have since resulted in our team garnering long-term engagements, ongoing referrals and deep relationships.

Brian is a rare find. Understated yet confident, he thrives on rising to the big challenges and sets high standards – but nothing more than he expects of himself. Driven to make a difference, he’s renowned for being a hands-on leader of tight-knit, client-centric teams that turn seemingly impossible obstacles into win-win outcomes.
