Schalk Kearney, CEO & Founder, Pet Heaven

At the age of 8 when I made my first 50cents selling mangoes picked from our backyard to passersby, I knew that I wanted to be an Entrepreneur. The opportunity of building multiple businesses in South Africa excites me to this day, with a keen interest in eCommerce, Finance and Tech. Currently I manage Pet Heaven (, a company I help found in 2013. 

My early experience in management has enabled me to create customer oriented systems and financial models in order to build a sustainable business in ecommerce. This combination of a deep financial understanding and a strong focus on delivering exceptional customer service has been the key to thriving in a constantly changing and challenging business environment.
