Jasper Cloete Bio
Jasper is married to Helen (retired teacher, now business woman and grandmother) and has two sons Henre and Jaco. Through Henre and his wife Joanne, he is now the proud grand father of Caleb and Harper
He is the eldest of 5 children and his late father was a pastor. Having observed the financial struggles his father went through, he decided to embark on a corporate career.
He studied with a bursary and obtained a BSc Honns at the University of Pretoria followed by an MBA at the University of Stellenbosch. He worked in management and senior management for entities such as Somchem (propellent manufacturer in the Denel group – old Armscor), Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), the Business Partners and the SA Housing Trust.
In 1992 at the age of 37, he got retrenched which put an end to his corporate career and he started off on his own entrepreneurial journey. This journey led to the establishment of African Markets for the NeoLife group (www.shopneolife.com/jhcloete) in 1994 and the establishment of their family owned guesthouse and conference centre, Eagle’s Nest in Fourways (www.eaglesnest.co.za) in 1997. In 2008 he founded the Generational Inheritance Group (GIG) (www.gig-institute.com) which in turn led to the establishment of a registered community bank – GIG CFI (www.gig.coop) in 2015. In 2017 he co-founded the Community Chamber of Commerce (CCC) (www.fccc.co.za) and in 2018 co-founded an insurance and investment company GIG Wealth (www.gigwealth.co.za).
Jasper authored the book – Legacy, 4 Steps to Success and Significance in Life and Business – in 2017. In the book he shares the generic template used by Generational Families to break the shackles of poverty and move to Abundance and Prosperity through the journey of the 4 S’s – Struggle to Stability to Success and Significance. This generic template can now be applied by any family that are serious to grow their family into the next generational family.
He has been an active member of the International Christian Chamber of Commerce – ICCC (www.iccc.net) since 2005 and is a firm believer that God has a fantastic plan for South Africa and Africa in the years to come. With that believe as his internal compass he is now actively collaborating with leaders and entities that are committed to a similar vision of a better world for their children and grandchildren.
