Charl Marais

Director, Supply Chain

Charl Marais is DB’s Supply Chain Director and took up this role after leading Planning and Logistics after joining DB in 2010.

Charl has an extensive background in the FMCG industry with 18 years experience in total, 16 of those spent in the wider end- to-end supply chain. A career highlight was his involvement in a Greenfield operation as the supply chain manager in South Korea which he found particularly rewarding and was a long held ambition. His work has taken him all over the world including Africa and Asia but Charl is now pleased to call New Zealand home.

New Zealand also offers Charl the opportunity to pursue fishing, as he loves getting out on the Hauraki Gulf. If not fishing, he is an avid sports fan and family man, spending most Saturdays on the side of a netball court cheering on his daughters.

Charl’s beer of choice is Monteith's Pilsner.
