Media junkie turned insurance fundi
Marthinus Jansen van Vuuren’s career kicked off in 2003 at Beeld Newspaper after graduating with degrees in journalism and performing arts from Stellenbosch University. After chasing deadlines at the Afrikaans daily for four years, he moved on to Sunday newspaper Rapport. He had a short stint editing a niche publication focusing on the business process services and outsourcing industries before joining BrightRock as a content specialist. “I joined BrightRock because it’s different from the rest of the role players in the market – and by that I mean different in a good way, they’re changing the way people perceive life insurance. I wanted to be a part of this movement.” When he’s not managing PR, writing, editing or planning content in BrightRock’s Marketing Department, you’ll catch Marthinus training on his bike or plotting his next adventure over a glass of red. He does, after all, #LoveChange.
