Kristian grew up in South Africa where animals have always been a part of his life. Growing up fascinated by the environment and amazing animals in his home country, Kristian very much enjoyed his time working in nature conservation prior to a move into business management and the opportunities to travel that followed.
Having spent the majority of his career in business development and achieving his master’s in business administration (MBA), Kristian brings a fantastic combination of skills to his role as Pet Relocation Co-ordinator and enjoys the unique challenges and opportunities of this pet focused industry.
Kristian grew up with pets and feels blessed that owners entrust him and the team to safely relocate their fur-babies around the world.
He is committed to the GVC Fear Free philosophy and is proud to be a Fear Free Certified Professional with a focus on making every pet’s experience as positive as possible, an approach that makes such a difference in pet relocation.
Outside of work, Kristian is a family man and cherishes time with his daughter, as well as going fishing and being out in nature.
He is an important part of the highly-skilled team at German Veterinary Clinic, one of the longest running vet clinics in United Arab Emirates (UAE), located in Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi.
