Published: 02/05/2024

Christie Engelbrecht was recently appointed as the new general manager of BKB Grainco. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting (B.Acc) and a bachelor of Accounting Honours degree (B.Acc Hons) from the University of the Free State. He is also a chartered accountant with membership from the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants, and has a master’s in Business Administration from Stellenbosch University.
His experience includes serving as the financial manager of Orange River Cellars, as well as being the general manager of PakHouse Brands and AlphaAlfa. Christie will also be replacing his predecessor, Casper Schmidt, as BKB Grainco’s representative on the Agbiz Grain steering committee. Casper is still with BKB, but in the post of general manager, Livestock and Properties. The committee would like to thank him for his contribution over the years, while welcoming Christie – we believe he will make a positive contribution to Agbiz Grain’s service to its members and industry. – Plaas Media
