A Much Admired Gentleman


I never had the privilege of working with Roger Pickles, I did however meet him on two occasions and it really wasn’t difficult to ascertain why people in the industry held him in such high regard.

When we heard of his passing, we were quick to upload an article on masterbuilders.co.za highlighting his accomplishments and his many invaluable contributions to the industry.  I in fact penned the article, using information we had on record which was easily accessible to me.

We have since received a second article, this time from former Executive Director Pieter Rautenbach who worked with him for many years. Pieter’s article is a great tribute to an old friend which elegantly captures, why Roger was so admired by so many who knew him.

It is titled “A Personal Tribute to Roger Pickles” and although I never really got to know him, it makes me wish I did.
