MEET THE TEAM
CRAIG COOPER, DIRECTOR
Originally from Port Elizabeth, Craig completed his B.Comm Marketing and Business Management studies before making the move to the commercial capital of Gauteng in 2002. Although he started off his career in the financial services industry, he soon realised that his true passion was property. Craig began his career in the commercial property industry under a locally-based firm. In 2011, he had his big break and single- handedly founded the company that is today known as Warehouse Finder. In addition to actively growing and expanding his national business, he spends a great deal of his time and energy on training and developing talent with a hands-on management style.
TASCHYANA FOURIE, HEAD OF PROPERTY SALES
Taschy Fourie has 10 years’ experience in corporate management and directorship including startup expansion, divisional diversification and general business management at EXCO level, amongst others. Taschy joined the property industry in March 2016 and has successfully applied her knowledge of business operations to assist our clients in achieving their property strategies. With the 2016/2017 upswing in property sales, Warehouse Finder opted to dedicate a resource to our sales division to leverage this movement in the market.
“I personally pride myself in unrivalled service levels and make it my business to know yours!”
WIRONIEK BARNARD, OPERATIONS MANAGER
Wironiek started at Warehouse Finder in May 2013 as an administrative and sales assistant. Over the years, her strong management and administration skills did not go unnoticed and at the start of 2017 she was appointed as the National Operations Manager. Since then her responsibilities have escalated from assisting brokers with admin to comprehensively managing admin and databases, and ensuring that all aspects of the organisation’s operations run smoothly.

ANÉ BOTHA, MARKETING MANAGER
Ané’s passion for the property industry led her to explore an opportunity with Warehouse Finder in June 2017. Starting her career with Warehouse Finder as a broker, our director Craig soon recognised her knack for marketing and people relations, and appointed her as Marketing Manager. She is responsible for building the company’s brand through various mediums, as well as building and communicating our company culture.

KAREN COOPER, HR AND ACCOUNTS
Karen studied HR Management through INTEC, and received her Diploma in 2009. She began her career at Warehouse Finder by assisting with all administrative functions when the company was still in its infancy. Due to the fact that Human Resources has always been a passion of hers, it was a natural decision for her to take over this role. She was later assigned to the Financials and Accounts as well.
“I’m inspired by hard-working people, go-getters, people who follow and stick to their dreams no matter what life throws at them.”

The terms of your lease agreement can make or break the success of your investment or severely impact your occupational objectives. With rigorous negotiation skills and in-depth technical and market related knowledge, we can help you make the most of your lease agreement, whether you are an investor or an occupier.
The best approach is a proactive one. Commercial lease agreements are often only looked at when it is time for a rent review or lease renewal, but anticipating the parties' changing needs over the term of the lease agreement can benefit both investor and occupier.We consult and manage the entire lease process whilst looking for ways to help our commercial property investors and occupiers achieve their objectives.
