Bas Zuidberg

CHAIRMAN

Bas moved with his wife and 2 teenage kids to Noordhoek in 2017. They had been living for 10 years in Egypt before that and Noordhoek was one of the reasons for choosing to move to South Africa instead of moving back to the Netherlands where they are originally from. Being able to live in a rural setting, surrounded by mountains, wetland and beach, just 45 minutes from downtown Cape Town with all its world class offerings, is something that is truly unique. Bas is a supply chain and SME finance expert, working mainly in Central and East Africa. His motives for joining NRPA are to help the community to navigate the challenges facing it, while at the same time retaining its unique identity.
