The Treble Group welcomes the return of a familiar face in Vincent Heyns who joins our team in a new Account Manager role. ‘Vinny’ is well known in the corridors of the Treble offices as he spent several years at the company, growing from an intern to fast becoming an asset to the Treble Team.
With a strong skillset rooted in Sports Marketing, Sponsorship, and Event Management, Vincent worked on high profile accounts at Treble, such as the Springbok Supporters’ Club, Boktown, Club Newlands, and the Discovery Big Walk.
His pathway in the industry led him to the City of Gold, where he worked for Openfield Marketing in Johannesburg. A rewarding experience where he was part of the Account Management of Vodacom’s rugby sponsorship of the highly popular Super Rugby competition.
His time in Jozi saw him playing a role in several award-winning campaigns and it took him pitch-side to the electric atmosphere of the 2017 Super Rugby final between the Lions and the Crusaders at Ellis Park – and the rematch in the following year’s showpiece final in Christchurch, the untamed wildness of Leopard Creek – the most unique golf course on the planet, and the high-octane surrounds of Kyalami Racetrack.
A proud DHL Stormers and Western Province fan, Vincent has always had a long-standing love for rugby. From playing the game, to idolising his heroes from the Railway Stand, and later working with them, it’s no surprise that Vincent has forged a career in sport.
Vincent and his wife are embarking on their new journey together with the arrival of their first child, which balances perfectly with the new chapter in his career, as he grows into his new role and takes the next steps in his growth as a person, and a more importantly, a father.
Blending a vast knowledge of the sporting climate in South Africa, Vincent is an asset to our team as we look forward to new beginnings in the South African sporting landscape.
The Treble Group team wishes Vincent all the very best with his return to our offices in Newlands.
