National Operations Director
André started his career with a degree in Materials Engineering at the University of Cape Town, and worked at the CSIR for 1 year, before moving on to work at Eskom Technology and Research division for a period of five years.
At about that time the Internet was becoming a commercial reality in South Africa and he started working for a company distributing Internet Africa starter kits and services and his responsibilities included setting up and running the Johannesburg branch. He then saw the potential of the Internet and started a company called The CyberShoppe whose initial focus was the distribution of “Inside the Internet” software and which expanded to include website design, Intranet design and Internet consulting services.
At the beginning of 1998 the website design and Intranet design division of The CyberShoppe merged with Krazy Boyz Playtime to form KRAZYBOYZ digital.
Gustave has been involved in the Internet since its commercial inception in South Africa. Initially (August 1995 to December 1996) he was the Marketing Manager for a company involved in distribution and resale of Internet software for UUNet. Managing the distribution and resale of Internet software gave him a sound technical understanding of the Internet and led to the authoring of two Internet training manuals.
His involvement in the Internet progressed to a partnership in The CyberShoppe that involved the distribution and resale of a wide range of “Inside the Internet” software and expanding to include Internet website and Intranet development and Internet Consulting Services.
In 1998 the The CyberShoppe merged with Krazy Boyz Playtime to form KRAZYBOYZ digital.
Gustave’s main focus is the development and management of innovative digital business and marketing strategies for KRAZYBOYZ Clients.

KRAZYBOYZ loves coming up with solutions for our clients, and that is exactly what we did for NoMU.
This premium brand came to KRAZYBOYZ with a limited budget but big plans. Wanting more for their budget they wanted to stir up their digital presence and enhance their offering on-line. They however lacked the budget to redevelop their complete web site. So what was the solution? A phased approach, which allow them to focus on the most important and leave the rest for later...
KRAZYBOYZ has over the last couple of months relaunched the NoMU mailer solution, NoMU blog and this month sees the launch of the NoMU shop.
What makes this so extraordinary? All of these live together on the NoMU web site happily although there is no shared backend environment.
If you are a highly talented individual and an expert in your field then you might just have what it takes to earn yourself an interview with KRAZYBOYZ.
Should you however be a person that is creative, focussed, able to work under stress, think out of the box, meet deadlines and multi-task over and above being pedantic; then you should really let us know.
Our current team has been working together for over ten years and are keen for some new blood; at KRAZYBOYZ we push the envelope to try something extraordinary.
