Bierman Group History

Wikus Bierman founded the Bierman Group when he opened his first practice in Kraaifontein, in 2001.

The practice was so well received by the community that Wikus decided to open a second branch a few years later, this time in Vredendal. 

And the rest, as they say, is history. 

The Bierman Group now includes more than 20 practices, most run by partners.
