Business Management in Practice
Neil Wright spent 28 years in the transport industry, running his own business. There were two divisions, Rent a Truck (Pty) Ltd. and Nominated Carrier, both Cape Town based companies. Together the two businesses developed into one of the largest privately-owned transport operations in the country, with branches in all the major centres. The business was sold by Wright in 2000.
The BONISA Private Gallery
Neil and his wife Liesel also ran a gallery in Kloof, Bonisa Private Gallery for a few years. From this experience, Wright wrote books on two of the artists, the well known sculptor, Carl Roberts and the doyen of ceramics, the potter Andrew Walford. These are available as printed books or to read online.
Neil and Liesel live in Kloof, Kwa-Zulu Natal and have a Game Lodge on the Soutpansberg, Sigurwana.
