GARY STROEBEL
CEO

Gary brings over 25 years of media management experience to bear at Future Media and believes that radio is still the pulse of any economy.

Despite being a pencil jockey, he still gets a thrill when that red light in the studio flicks on…

CHRISTINE THOMPSON

CFO | HR Officer

She is the big-mama of the company. Although she is not literally ‘big’, she is the one that all would run to if the roof were on fire.

RICHARD THOMPSON
Technical Manager
He is the IT guy… what can we say – he is strange and quite and noting to contribute to this write up.
SONJA STEENKAMP
Sales Manager
Sonja has more than 15 years of experience in the Corporate World. Having held various positions over her career, she has been a Group Sales and New Business Manager for the longest time. She is very smart and sure to stand her ground, having worked in male dominated industries.
ELZETHE LOUW
Finance Manager
Though her chief ambition is to one day control the world, Elzethe keeps herself busy in the meantime managing Future Media’s finances.
JACQUELINE LOHMANN
Agency Sales Executive
Jacqueline comes from a hospitality background and fell into radio by chance. Jarret and Deon (our former Waking Crew) needed a stand in for their News, and she was on holiday in Namibia at the time, so that was her starting point!

She has had the privilege of witnessing Radiowave grow from strength to strength over 19 years and to now see the birth of the Future Media brand…

DEON VAN RENSBURG
Station Manager, NOVA 103.5
Deon has been in radio since his university days when he “fell into” the medium quite by accident. That was such a long time ago that he is known a radio dinosaur.

In terms of the technical side of things, radio has changed rapidly – but in radio one thing remains the same – quality broadcasting is timeless and remains very popular (and that is what NOVA is all about)!
