Our Executive Team

Herman Breedt:

 Herman Breedt

Herman started his career in 1985 with ESKOM. After a few years in the Trade Union Industry where he served on the then National Manpower Commission, he was elected to serve on the Labour Market Chamber of NEDLAC. He was part of the delegation that attended the ILO convention in Geneva when South Africa was allowed back for the first time in 1993.

During this period, he was elected to the National Executive Committee of the Motoring Bargaining Council, serving on the Motor Industry Training Board and Motor Industry Pension and Provident Fund. He also served as a National Executive Committee member of FEDUSA. He was one of the first Commissioners to be appointed by the CCMA where he was involved in conciliation, arbitration, mediation and facilitation of Industrial and Labour Disputes, including strikes and collective bargaining.

He went on to establish a thriving Labour Law consultancy firm in 1996 and cemented his reputation as an expert in this field. With his wealth of knowledge and experience he continues to assist employers with navigating the relevant workplace issues and legislation.
