As the founder of Computer Media Specialists, my journey in the industry started many years ago in Johannesburg where I learned the trade as a sales representative. After being in the computer consumables business for many years, I met my beloved husband and moved to Welkom. In 1991, with his encouragement and support, I opened COMPUTER MEDIA SPECIALISTS CC. We started out modestly, Anglo Gold being our biggest customer, but we developed incredible relationships with all our customers in and around Welkom, which grew our business from strength to strength.
Slowly but surely our team started to grow. In 2007, we gained a gem by employing Liesl Marais. Liesl excelled beyond every expectation and she is now the Managing Director of our store. Liesl’s strengths lie in product knowledge, information technology and solving technical problems, to name but a few.
In 2009, David Khoabane joined Computer Media Specialists. David ensures that every delivery is made on time and he is a very valued member of our team. Our customers continually phone us singing David’s praises.
Our little piece of dynamite, Baby Nane, joined Computer Media Specialists in 2011, Baby is our pride and joy. She started with no product knowledge, and now she is one of our most skilled employees. Baby is our Front-liner and Sales-coordinator.
Lastly, but certainly not the least, Wilna van Rensburg, our Accountant has been with Computer Media Specialists since 2003. Willie has endless amounts of patience, her door is always open to our queries and questions, and she knows just how to keep us on our toes.
COMPUTER MEDIA SPECIALISTS is the biggest consumable retail store in the Goldfields and is a certified retail dealer for the following brands:
HP * CANON * EPSON * SAMSUNG * LEXMARK * BROTHER * OKI * REAL COLOUR * JETPRINT * RICOH
Toners and cartridges demand most of our attention, but we stock many other consumables including printers, ribbons, external storage media, computer paper, cleaning materials and more.
Therefore, although Computer Media Specialists well oiled team and high quality products form the foundation, the heart of our business is our intention to be authentically customer orientated.
This orientation is not something that we only aim to attain in our service, but rather is instilled in our ethos and filters into every process of our interactions. We value hard work, passion, transparency, relationship and integrity and it is our hope that any interaction with part of our business reflects this at all times.
