Gerhard Dreyer

Gerhard Dreyer joined the Westbrook Team in 2021, taking Gqeberha’s new suburb to the next level. As he puts it, “I believe the concept we are busy creating at Westbrook is changing the way things are done in this area, and over time the Westbrook suburb will be the suburb of choice in this area of Gqeberha.”


When he joined the Amdec Group in 2014 – getting involved in many successful projects – Gerhard had built an excess of 500 houses in the Gqeberha area, focusing primarily on residential developments and constructions. Gerhard aims to always help create value and to give customers an opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families, within Westbrook.
