Director - Aleit Venues
Ryno serves as Aleit's right-hand-man when it comes to signing The Aleit Group's prestigious clients. Exuding great confidence and the friendliest, most professional demeanour, he is an over-achiever that is dedicated, driven and analytical. These characteristics contribute to him achieving his goals without fail each and every time.
From his first encounter with the company while attending a wedding Aleit had arranged, he was drawn towards their professionalism and outstanding work ethic. "It encompassed so many of the attributes I hold dear and practice in my everyday life." says Ryno.
Ryno Bakkes was born in the Eastern Cape and at a very early age his family and friends realised he was destined for exciting things. After matriculating in 2003, he decided to study MBChB (medicine) at the University of the Free State. Ryno soon realized this was not for him and after completing the year, he went backpacking through Europe. This kept him on foreign shores for two years before returning to South Africa to complete a B.Sc degree in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Stellenbosch in 2009. He then started his postgraduate in LLB and is currently pursuing this degree via UNISA whilst working for The Aleit Group.
Ryno brings a fresh burst of energy to the team with his zest for life and his 'always ready to lend a hand' attitude. "I am so privileged to start my career in the most interesting of environments, learning from the best and constantly being challenged to be the best. I love it!"
