Marizelle Houpe joined Super Tyres four years ago and worked in the creditors department before working her way into the IT department. This is where her passion for systems and process management blossomed and she now handles IT and Stock Control at the Super Tyres head office in Durban. Working in a predominantly male industry has never bothered Marizelle and she thrives on interaction with her team
Marizelle’s advice for fellow women is to never doubt their worth or ability. “You can be successful in any industry. Believe in yourself and aim for the stars!”
There is a growing trend of women coming in to have their tyres replaced and/or wheel alignment seen to. “Whilst we still have men coming in to our stores, we have definitely noticed an increase in the number of women coming in over the past few years which is wonderful,” explains Dean.
Marizelle says she loves working in the tyre industry and has great respect for all women who work in typically male-dominated industries. “This women’s month let’s all make a concerted effort to recognise, honour and appreciate all the wonderful women in our lives.”
