André Pienaar is responsible for establishing C5, a varied international team of investors and entrepreneurs with a focus on providing long-term support, private equity, and venture capital to EMEA and US based cloud computing, data analytics, and cybersecurity companies. With years of expertise, André’s career began at Kroll Inc, where prior to its sale in 2004, he held the position of the company’s youngest ever Managing Director.
Following his success at Kroll inc., André went on to launch G3, an advisory consultancy providing advice on regulatory compliance, risk mitigation, and cybersecurity to its global client base. André continued to grow G3 until eventually selling the company in 2011 to a market leader in technology investments.
André's expertise has also been utilized by the 6th Duke of Westminster in building the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre, a £300m facility at Stanford Hall. The centre will be one of the world’s finest clinical rehabilitation centres for the UK’s armed forces.
Alongside his support of this excellent new facility, André is engaged with several charitable organisations including the International Crisis Group, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, David Shepard Wildlife Foundation, and many more.
