A keen family man, and father of three, Meyer is an avid sport enthusiast, with a keen interest in golf, having held the position of club captain and chairperson at Pinnacle Point Golf Club. He also serves on the home owners board of Pinnacle Point.

"We are extremely excited about the appointment of Meyer, and we firmly believe that he is the man to take the brand forward. His track record and skill sets speak for themselves, together with a host of attributes that really appealed to the board that appointed him. On behalf of everybody at Loftus, I’d like to officially welcome him to the Bulls family," said BBRU president and chairperson of the BBCo Board, Willem Strauss.
