I’m Gabriel theron
ceo and president
I am a visionary and entrepreneur at heart, and excels in start-ups and turnaround projects.
My career started as an Internal Auditor, at The South African Breweries (SAB). Not long after, fuelled by my passion for adapting dynamic environments, I co-founded a R&D company in the ICT sector. Following its rapid take-off, I was listed as one of Mail & Guardian’s “200 Young South Africans You Must Take to Lunch”. In 2008 I co-founded a Digital Agency, which quickly became a market leader in the Digital Marketing space.
In 2015 I was appointed as a non-executive Board member of the South Africa Forestry Company Limited (SAFCOL), the third largest forestry company in Africa. Not long into which, I was then seconded as Acting CEO to SAFCOL by the Minister of Public Enterprises, where I served my country for 2 years. It was my head-fast ambition and drive during my tenure that saw SAFCOL break the R1 Billion turnover mark for the first time ever and has not been repeated to date, remaining one of the few state owned entities who didn’t put a strain on the fiscus, and that was completely self-sustaining.
In 2018, I was inspired by an international philanthropist and mentor, and Cilo Cybin was born. My focus and energy is committed to building a global leader to promote the lives of our clientele, both mentally and physically. I believe that the time has come for individualised, bespoke treatments, and that every person must be treated as such. Cilo Cybin aims to do exactly that.
