Who We Are

The Protea designation…

derives from a flower and its meaning is linked to the value of our company and to the message it is intending to send.

Protea expresses :


“certainly different, and it stands out from the crowd.”

We like to believe in our distinctiveness to provide a positive and unique experience to our clients.


Similar to its strong message it symbolizes “to overcome obstacles”, we believe we can surmount obstacles by emboldening ingenuity and make a difference for our clients.


“This meaning is linked to the character of Protea flower and interpreted as a symbol of becoming someone better” and is the reflection of our company to perpetually learn and provide our clients with the best solutions.


The appearance of the Protea flower is denoting  boldness” and which  transpires into our confidence for success ”
