Following the completion of his articles, Du Plessis was appointed as the Financial Manager of Protea Hotel by Marriott Knysna Quays.

I will strive to make a difference and create lasting results towards the financial wellbeing of the business,” Du Plessis says.

He describes himself as honest, humble and hard-working, with an analytical mind-set and a penchant for problem solving.
