Staff

DIETER OCHSENBEIN

FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN


I have been hunting and fishing since I was a little boy growing up in Switzerland. This passion led me to South Africa in the early 1970's, where I worked as a town planner for the city of Port Elizabeth. Shortly after moving to Johannesburg, I had the opportunity to buy a bankrupt taxidermy studio, so I sold my engineering business and founded Highveld Taxidermists in 1981, now one of the leading taxidermy studios in the world. Due to my involvement in the hunting world, I am the proud recipient of the SCI President's Award, The PHASA Wildlife Utilization Award and the SA Hunters Award.

THOMAS OCHSENBEIN

MANAGING DIRECTOR


I have been hunting since I took my first Mountain Reedbuck trophy with my dad when I was 7 years old and joined the family business in 1998 after graduating from University.
I now run the studio and the operations side of the business and look forward to showing you around.

BARBARA MURRAY

FINANCIAL DIRECTOR


I used to join my dad on hunts when I was a little girl and have grown to love the African bush so much that I returned from Switzerland after completing my studies. After a further 4 year degree in business commerce, I joined the family business in 2006 and love my work in finance and accounting. I look forward to speaking to you on each financial milestone of your order.

LISA FERREIRA

OFFICE MANAGER


I joined Highveld Taxidermists in 1997 as I finished school and have been part of the team for over 20 years now, graduating into my role as office manager. In addition to running the Highveld office, I also handle all permit applications for the import and export of your hunting trophies. You are welcome to contact me with any queries you may have on your upcoming hunt or current order with us.

IDEON KOEKEMOER

CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER


My passion for hunting bit me when I was 24 years old, and since then I have not been able to let go of the reigns . With over 14 years in the Customer Service, Contact Centre, Systems and Retail industries, I took a leap of faith and decided to start working in an industry that I have great love and respect for. I am always available to help in any way possible regarding queries, complaints and advice. I look forward to meeting with you, and maintaining the strong relationship we thrive on here at Highveld Taxidermists.
