Much of Wayne’s working life was spent in the Transport and Tourism Industries, where he served as the ceo for five years to 2012 at Avis. He also occupied board member positions at the SA Vehicle Renting and Leasing Association (SAVRALA) and the Tourism Business Council of SA (TBCSA).
Wayne chaired OUTA during its inception period whilst it tackled Government’s introduction of Gauteng’s irrational e-Toll scheme as a three person team. In 2016 he became the ceo as the organisation expanded to a 50 person team by 2020 under a broader mandate as the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse.
Today, OUTA is regarded as a leading civil activist organisation in challenging the abuse of authority within the public sector.
Wayne schooled in KZN and is a BSc graduate of the University of Natal. Wayne describes himself as an entrepreneur, activist, writer, speaker and family man all harboured in one restless soul. His favourite quote is by Tyree Scott who once said: “It’s generally unwise to leave those who created the problem in charge of finding the solution."
