We are pleased to announce two new promotions of staff this March.

Tanya van Aswegen, who marks 20 years working at the firm this year is promoted to Chief Operating Officer of Compli-Serve SA, while Kelly Matthews, who has worked for the company for over five years is promoted to Senior Bookkeeper.

They both began their careers at Compli-Serve as receptionists assisting the broader team and have worked their way up in various roles over time.

“Our Director saw the potential in me and encouraged me to invest in my education and to stay with Compli-Serve, to establish policies, procedures and processes for our head office, most of which are still in use to date,” says van Aswegen who has studied Business Management and is nearing completion of a Bachelor of Commerce degree, evolving from a receptionist/PA to Office Manager, General Manager and now into her new role as COO.

“The key responsibilities of my role will be to ensure operations align with strategic objectives, translating these into actionable plans and initiatives, while working closely with stakeholders and staff in the business. I manage resources, identify opportunities for improvements in processes, streamline workflows, handle all HR related tasks, operational financial planning, risk- and project management, IT operations, and ensuring that compliance with relevant laws, regulations and industry standards are always met,” she says.

Matthews’ keen interest in the accounts department afforded her the opportunity to become a Junior Accounts Clerk, and later the Accounts Clerk. She also holds the position of Health & Safety Officer at Compli-Serve and is in her final year of completing her National Diploma in Financial Accounting.

“I enjoy working at Compli-Serve and with the team,” says Matthews. “I have grown so much over the years, and I look forward to learning new responsibilities and growing further within my role.”

Richard Rattue, Managing Director and Founder of Compli-Serve has praised the invaluable work these ladies do at Compli-Serve SA. “Tanya and Kelly have grown tremendously over the years and have shown true passion for compliance and the work that they do. They are positive, proactive and indispensable members of our team and we wish them all the best in their new roles,” he concludes.
