Director of Consulting Services
Michelle began her journey in the technology industry in 2004 when she left academia to join Open Box for the first time. In her first year with us, she was part of the team that delivered the systems behind the launch of the Top of the Rock attraction in New York, and credits the creative and technical challenges of the project as the start of her passion for business analysis and solutions design. In 2009 she moved to London, and in her nine years there was exposed to a variety of technologies, cultures, techniques and solutions in one of the most dynamic IT industries in the world. She’s also gained extensive experience in the Commercial Real Estate industry, having worked as a Business Analyst for both Tishman Speyer and Cushman & Wakefield while in the UK.
Having returned to South Africa and Open Box, Michelle brings all these threads together in her role as Director of Consultancy, as she and her team work closely with Open Box’s clients, providing advisory and consulting services that help turn technology initiatives into robust solutions. Michelle is also responsible for nurturing a consulting mindset at Open Box, ensuring every project, no matter the size or scope, is delivered with our principles of ‘Remarkable Experience’ and ‘Better Way’ in mind.
In her spare time, Michelle finds nothing more relaxing than cooking a good meal, and loves feeding friends and family. She’s also an avid gamer, and can often be found cooperating with guildmates to defeat the toughest challenges in Azeroth.
