An inspiring mission: work your dream

Mr James said he had lived as if in a dream and that his work was his passion and his life. He emphasized that the founders could only use his name under the condition that they would take good care of their people, help them in their career development and make sure they have fun. "We want to help our people by making their dream a reality," Korsten says passionately. "Our company slogan, 'work your dream' is based on this inspirational mission."

What Mr. JAMES creates: perfect matches
