Jacques Roos

Executive Director and CEO: Trifert

Jacques grew up in Pretoria and matriculated from Hoërskool Oos-Moot in 1999. He went on to study Law at the University of Pretoria. Jacques joined the Doxa Deo church group after leaving university where he was involved in serving the student community from 2003 to 2005. Jacques is an entrepreneur at heart, and in 2006 he started a digital marketing business with a friend. They supplied digital screens for various companies during the 2010 Coca-Cola Soccer World Cup and served big clients like Edgars – the business exists to this day

Jacques is married to Madel, the youngest daughter of Kobus and Madel Fourie and they have two children. Jacques joined Schoeman in 2013 to look after transformation, non-agriculture projects, and the commercial side of the business. He is also the CEO of Trifert, a fertiliser business in which Schoeman owns a major stake. Jacques played a pivotal role in the transformation of Agron to Trifert and the integration of the new stakeholders. A project that lies close to Jacques’s heart is the Zamukele project which aims to establish emerging dry bean producers as commercial farmers – a project he has been spearheading since its inception in 2017. Jacques is also involved in the research of all the new business avenues that Schoeman looks at pursuing as well as new and current community development initiatives.
