Drikus van der Wath
Product Support Specialist | PR3
A born-and-bred Free State man, product support specialist Drikus van der Wath joined a small computer shop as junior technician in his birth town Bethlehem after matriculating. Soon, he developed an interest in the agricultural industry and started working at Farmsecure’s grain division in Bethlehem in 2009. Two years later, he jumped at the opportunity to relocate to Cape Town in a systems support position and was subsequently promoted to assistant systems analyst. In this position, he was part of a team that developed Farmsecure’s on-farm management platform.
Drikus has a few courses in SQL management and the Windows environment under his belt. In 2014 he was appointed head of systems and support at Farm Agricultural Enterprise Management (now Agrisig) where he was involved in identifying systems and software in the remote sensing space of Agriculture and GIS Solutions.
To relax, he enjoys the occasional computer game or multiplayer online game. Other than that, Drikus loves spending time with his new family.
