Rob Beaumont

Founder/CEO

Starting as a tyre fitter, Rob soon realised his desire to work for himself. Having noticed a lack of customer service, his focus has always been providing the best possible customer experience. Rob founded ATT in 1987 as a single tyre shop. He has owned and run many different businesses over the years – which all gave him invaluable business knowledge. Rob instilled a culture of exceeding the customers’ expectations and this still rings true in ATT’s assertion of: We are customer driven!

Mike Tolliss

CFO

After working for a London-based logistics company for three years, Mike returned to South Africa in 1999 and entered the tyre industry. In 2012, Mike joined ATT as the Chief Financial Officer. With his passion for business and an entrepreneurial spirit, he identified new opportunities for growth. One such opportunity was when he took on an added procurement role in 2013, which opened up the opportunity for our passenger tyre business.

John Smith

CSO

Having worked in the sales and service industry where he was one of the first to pilot an on-site invoicing system for a Blue-Chip company, John later joined the tyre industry in which he has gained over 20 years’ experience. John joined ATT in 2003 as a sales representative and was promoted to Sales Manager in 2007. Since then, he was promoted to head up Sales as CSO. John has a passion for sales and service delivery where seeing the customer happy is his own personal motto.

Douglas Lake

HOO

Douglas has been with ATT since 1999 and has over 25 years’ experience in the tyre industry. Starting as the Passenger Centre supervisor, Douglas has worked across many of the divisions over the years. He now heads up Operations which oversees nine divisions within ATT. His passion is to drive ATT as the best tyre supplier in South Africa and to motivate his staff to excel at their jobs.
