- Hometown: Cape Town
Gavin Burns joins Ullman Sails International as the Chief Financial Officer, based in Cape Town. Gavin qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2000, having completed his studies and articles with Deloitte in Johannesburg. After completing his articles and with a strong desire to travel, he worked in California, London and Sydney in various financial management roles. He returned to South Africa in 2003 and decided to “semigrate” from inland Johannesburg, where he grew up, to beautiful Cape Town. This afforded him the ability to live close to the ocean for which he has a deep affinity. Gavin has two wonderful boys and prefers nothing better than spending time with them on the weekends hiking in the mountains, swimming and surfing, or chilling at home.
