Mr. Tekkie: Robin Seabrook
Robin Seabrook has been the chief financial officer of Mr. Tekkie since July 2018, three months before its official launch.
Robin Seabrook has worked in hotels since 1997 and has been involved in hotel operations in some form in the gaming industry throughout his career. He has been part of a casino listing, actively involved in the development of four casinos and actively worked in senior management in the casino operations. He is a qualified chartered accountant who specialises in hotels and casinos with a strong business background and strong mathematical skills.
He left the world of hospitality in 2016, when he became the general manager of HR and finance at Tekkie Town. When Steinhoff took over Tekkie Town, Robin became the group head of Corporate and Financial Services of what is now known at Steinhoff Speciality Fashion and Footwear.
However, he walked away out of Tekkie Town with its founder Braam van Huyssteen and four months later established Mr. Tekkie, where he now serves as chief financial officer.
