A word from the CEO
“I think the day you realize that an idea, a vision becomes bigger than you as an individual and you share that vision, you realize the magnitude thereof. The energy and experience flowing from that point onwards, the passion that gets shared and the fire that ignites is where the gold lies.
And then and only then you know your purpose is to uplift, to build, to give, to touch other’s lives, to expand the circle of your own concern to include others.
Being authentic and real being open to receive and to give is the foundation of any successful organization. It is only then that you can call it a business or a company. And at LRE group that is exactly who we are.”
Lucas van Vuuren.
