Early Career

 

After graduating from University, Tevin launched a design and build business, the business was to focus on space reconfiguration of schools and educational institutions. He initially struggled to onboard clients but following numerous pitches, a client finally decided to give a young business with a young leader an opportunity, and as they say, the rest is history. This has formed the bedrock of Tevin’s belief till this day, to give opportunities to other people.

It is with this in mind, that he founded another division of the business, a food transport and logistic business that focused on last mile delivery aiming to increase efficiency and reduce emission.
