ABOUT US

We are not your run-of-the-mill accounting and auditing firm. We focus on technology and niche markets to differentiate us from our competitors.
Visit our KEMPEN Online page for more information.
 
With regards to niche markets, we focus on providing audit solutions in collaboration with other accounting and audit firms. If you are an accounting or auditing firm that has independence issues with regards to providing audit services to your clients, Visit our KEMPEN Audit page for more information and contact us.
 
Other niche markets we specialise in are providing tax solutions to professional golfers in South Africa. If you are a professional golfer, sports personality or any  professional entertainer please contact us.
 
Lastly, we believe that through our association with GMN International we can provide any of our services to any international company or individual looking to  establish themselves in South Africa or any South African business looking to do business abroad.
OUR HISTORY
Ignus Kempen and Lizzie Kempen have been chartered accountants since 2003 and 2004, respectively.
 
Since our early days in 1999 when we started our articles at Griesel Nel in Centurion, South Africa, we have built up our relationships with our clients and fellow professionals. We established firms such as Griesel Nel Southern Cape in 2004 and built it into the multinational firm LUMENROCK, acquiring more than 100 employees along the way, before eventually building our own brand under the KEMPEN Group. We believe the people we have come across and the relationships we have forged over time have put us in good stead for the future.

INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS

With Ignus Kempen having been the International chairman of GMNI from 2015 to 2017, an association of independent accounting firms with more than 3 500 staff, KEMPEN Group is ideally placed to utilise our relationships with our colleagues across the globe to assist anyone who needs the expertise of chartered accountants with international connections and experience.

MEET OUR TEAM

HANLIE DE VILLIERS

I have worked in accounting since 2014. Kempen Group gave me the opportunity to work with them from November 2019. I am primarily involved in data capturing, focusing on Payroll and eFiling. Client care is of the utmost importance to me and I therefore strive to be of service from a holistic financial perspective.

WILNA VENTER

I am an accomplished, knowledgeable and versatile Auditing Management Professional with extensive experience who demonstrates expertise in full function auditing – from planning and execution as well as finalising and issuing an opinion on audit reports, to meeting IRBA and SAICA requirements. In addition, I am comfortable working in deadline-driven environments as part of a team or on an individual basis. I possess the ability to take initiative and manage time effectively. My diverse skill set covers excellent leadership and communication. I consider myself a dedicated, accurate and goal-orientated individual, who always strives to deliver more than expected. I am known for building strong working relationships and am committed to being a confident and respected member in my environment.

CHANÉ OLIVIER

I joined Kempen Group in August 2019 and absolutely love what I do. Currently I am an almost qualified chartered accountant with 5 years’ experience in the industry. I completed my degree at the Nelson Mandela University after which I started with my articles while completing my honours degree part-time at UNISA. In addition, I passed my ITC SAICA Board exam and will be writing the APC Board exam in November. Helping our clients and keeping them happy and worry-free are what I strive for every day, along with the rest of the Kempen Group.
