Meet the Team

We’re more than a team – we’re family

Having started off as a wholesome, family-run local printing company, we consider each and every one of our employees as part of the Shereno family, and our most valuable resource. While some of us may share the same DNA, all of us share the same values and commitment towards our common vision of “print excellence”.

At Shereno, we provide a healthy and safe working environment where employees work as a team and develop as individuals. Our diverse workforce reflects the demographics of the new South Africa and represents a skilled team of professionals with a passion for print – a passion that we take very seriously.
