Robert Hellig

Head of Sales: South Africa

Having grown up in Durban, Rob spent most of his spare time working and spending holidays on his family friends’ farms and thus became passionate about agriculture. Rob attended Cedara College of Agriculture after school, which further fuelled his ambition to work in agriculture.

Rob has been fortunate enough to work for some leading companies in agriculture. His role with the biological control segment allowed him to interact with some of the best specialists across Europe and Africa. This experience allowed Rob to specialise in biological control across all crop segments, but mainly specialising in orchards and row crops.

Gaining experience in the start-up phase of the industry had put Rob in positions that allowed him to grow his understanding of the whole farming operation. This is what led him to pursue a sales role, followed by sales manager roles, and subsequently a head of Africa role within these companies.

Rob has always tended to stay one step ahead of what the norm in agriculture is, and this drew him to Aerobotics. He is excited by the opportunity to change the face of his industry.

In his spare time, Rob enjoys fishing and loves camping by the water.
