Employee Spotlight: Alex Mavronicolas


Meet Alex, a valued pillar of our AHI Carrier team. From his initial role as a Junior Engineer to now leading projects as a Senior Project Manager for South Africa, Alex’s trajectory is a testament to his dedication and prowess.

Alex Mavronicolas shares his journey:

“I embarked on my journey with AHI on 1st July 2016, diving into the world of Toshiba residential and light commercial units. By 2017-2018, I had the unique privilege of expanding our reach, selling both locally and into Africa. By 2019, my focus was honed in on South African light commercial and residential units. One of the most rewarding aspects of my journey has been witnessing the growth and expansion of the Toshiba brand, especially into Sub-Saharan Africa.

At AHI, our diverse cultures are not just acknowledged but deeply respected. This respect extends to our team dynamics. We are a cohesive unit, always finding time for each other, be it for project design, technical insights, or just a casual chat. My growth in the HVAC domain, despite not having a background in it, has been monumental. I owe this to the expertise and support of colleagues like Beswent Bester, Naas Massyn, Jacques Samules, and our commercial manager, Debbie Fenton. Their combined experience, exceeding 60 years, has been a treasure trove of learning for me. Beyond the core team, we’re blessed with a plethora of friendly staff who add joy to our daily grind.

Looking ahead, my vision is clear. We approach our industry with honesty, and I firmly believe that ethical business practices will always prevail. My genuine approach, coupled with my belief in our product, has not only fostered growth in sales year on year but has also transformed many of our clients into more than just customers. We’re in a fiercely competitive market, but our clients can rest assured that they’re investing in a world-class product. We, as a company, are committed to delivering the best value for money and impeccable after-sales service.

To anyone considering joining the company, remember: our products don’t sell themselves. It demands hard work for every sale, but the rewards, both tangible and intangible, are truly worth the effort.”
