Bram Beekman
Bram Beekman, the co-founder and
Chairman of the Beekman Group, was
a major force in the property and leisure
industry, before sadly passing away at
the age of 66 on Saturday, January 15,
He leaves behind an impressive legacy
in the formof the BeekmanGroup, which
he formed with his younger brother
John. Bram’s cheerful, positive outlook
on life, as well as the compassion that
he showed for those less fortunate
than himself, made him well loved by
all those that met him. He was a truly
remarkable man.
The success of the Beekman Group and
the Holiday Club is a glowing testament
to the hard work and dedication of Bram
Beekman. His vision and meticulous
planning molded a company that has
become a giant in the property and
leisure industry in South Africa.
Tony Fernandes
Tony Fernandes began working for
the Group on 1 February 1994 as
the Company Secretary and he was
fundamental in starting up the various
departments in the Group.
So it was very sad news for us when
we heard that Tony Fernandes, our
colleague and friend at The Beekman
Group, passed away on Monday, 21st
February, 2011.
For over 17 years Tony’s loyalty to the
Group earned him the respect of his
peers and the business world.
Tony was a big man, with a big heart,
and he was loved and respected by all
who knew him.
With his good-natured wit and fantastic
sense of humour, there was never a
dull moment when he was around. He
will be sorely missed by all who knew
An additional resort has been added
to our Signature Collection portfolio. A
Signature Collection resort is a resort
that is either wholly owned or managed
by The Holiday Club.
Members can be certain of superb
quality and better availability throughout
the year when selecting these resorts.
