The Access and Beyond Team would like to formally welcome Yolande Mafuya to the team.
It gives us pure delight to announce that she will be our sales representative in the Gauteng
region and she’s all hands on deck to grow herself and the business, so welcome Yolande.
Here’s an interesting read about the team's newest member and we can guarantee that her
journey is going to be a good one.
Words by Yolande herself, ‘I am a Eastern Cape born Johanneburger who moved from
Butterworth to Gauteng for school and have since made it home. I am a huge sports fan; rugby,
soccer and cricket at the top of that list, I literally cried when we won the 2019 rugby World Cup.
My favourite pastime is definitely watching sports with my friends, live or on TV with braai vibes
of course and playing 30 Seconds. I love church and have held several leadership roles within
my church youth leadership over the years, as I am very passionate about the development of
youth especially from rural areas and in tackling the challenge of transitioning in higher

part of church choirs and love singing, can’t say i'm talented though. Besides that I am a final
year BCom Law student at UNISA, an avid reader and my favourite author is definitely Paulo
Coelho and the Alchemist my favourite book.’

because I genuinely love interacting with people, observing and learning from them, I would say
this is why I have been in sales this long. In observing and listening I get to understand what the
client best needs. I have experience in the security distribution industry since 2013 and have
worked in both an operational and sales role therefore I have a broad understanding of the
process to giving the best service offering possible to clients. I have worked with many security
products and am trained in CCTV, Access Control, Intrusion and Electric Fencing, having been
trained in and selling products like; Hikvision, Dahua, Paxton, Sagem, Risco, DMP to name a
