Ignatius Johannes Du Plooy



Mr. Marius Matthews started his career at one of South Africa's major banking institutions. He was however quickly recognized for his entrepreneurial skills and marketing abilities and joined the Reeva Foreman Group of companies under whose tutorship he became a marketing expert. He was earmarked to pursue the company's European activities but he realized his potential and started his own business which was a great success. He eventually sold it and joined the SPE Group together with his father Stan Matthews who unfortunately passed away in May 2004. Marius made a great impact on the business activities of SPE together with his partners Naas du Plooy and Arnous Oberholzer and became a national security guarding company with major blue chip clients


His exceptional marketing skills and business abilities soon saw SPE, become one of the major security guarding companies in South Africa. As Managing Director, Marius and his loyal partners and staff members have major plans for years to come, seeing the company participating in full force and growing from strength to strength.
