Andre Le Grange

Andre le Grange CIMA Adv Dip MA

Nickname: 'Andre'

Group Financial Manager at Ntsu e Ntsho Group


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Springs South Africa

Andre is a Qualified Accountant with more than 8 years post article experience in various sized organisations. He also aims to complete CIMA by mid 2017 after passing his Management Level in May 2016. With this he obtained an Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting.

He is reliable, eager, hands on, organised, proactive and results driven. He has great communication skills, both written and verbal, in English and Afrikaans.

He previously assisted with business planning, financial forecasting, variance analysis and reporting of revenues, expenses and headcount for multiple regions;

At previous employers he would continuously seek ways to improve existing reporting to fit with evolving requests from senior management, creating reports and evaluating the reports' effectiveness.

He gained costing experience in a manufacturing environment which I gained mostly at East Rand Plastics when costing for manufacturing plastic bags and printing on these bags. Costing is a valuable component in any financial department and manufacturing environment.

His goal is to continuously grow, both professionally and personally and improve knowledge.

In 2002 he completed high school as the Top Student. At the end of 2008, I graduated from University of South Africa with a distinction in third year accounting therefore obtaining his BCompt Degree.

He has experience in industries ranging from Auditing to Banking, Manufacturing to Tolling and Telecoms and now Education and Entertainment / Media.

Currently, he am employed in the Education industry at EduSciMat that (supplies Smart Maths labs and Science labs to public schools) as a Financial Manager. From the start he was Acting Finance Executive as the Finance Executive was on maternity leave. A month after he joined, this company was placed under Final Liquidation but was granted Business Rescue with the hopes of growing stronger under guidance. They had no financial policy and procedures in place. In the few months here he has instituted procedures and process and also started with the implementation of SAGE X3.

He currently also fills the role as Financial Manager at Touch Central FM which is run by Gareth Cliff and Tbo Touch.

He has great advanced excel and word skills. He is great with computers and technology and it is a passion to stay up to date with technology. He is not afraid to learn new things and he is quite eager to learn new software. Over the past few years he has worked on Pastel, SYRPRO, Accpac, Alchemist and Hyperion (although be it very little). I have limited SAP Business One and Oracle knowledge.
