About Our Company

The Fitzwilliam Partnership (Botswana) (Pty) Ltd is a 100% citizen owned company. The practice first ventured into Botswana in 1989 and opened its office very soon thereafter.

Mr. O. T. (Puma) Mathware is the Managing Director of the practice. Even though the practice started off smaller in size in comparison to some of the longer established practices, it has grown in size over the past years and has been commissioned on many and varied projects and has established and is maintaining a reputation within Botswana for its technical abilities and the professional and efficient service it provides to its clients.

The Fitzwilliam Partnership prides itself with having retained amongst its ranks of senior personnel, very experienced professionals with a wide and varied range of experience in their profession. This has been achieved through the Directors’ recognition that the practice is only as good as the experience and expertise it retains amongst its staff.

Furthermore, the Company firmly believes that its primary resource and foundation of its success is its motivated quality staff, working in a stimulating environment. The Fitzwilliam Partnership Group personnel numbers have varied over the years depending on the market and workload. Currently there is a total of fifty five technical and administrative staff in the six offices of The Fitzwilliam Partnership Group in Europe, the Middle East and Southern Africa.
