Owner and managing director of NCAG. Responsible for day-to-day operations and over-seeing assessments in all departments. Thys was a valued member of the SAPS for 13 years prior to opening his own assessing company. During his last 2 years with the SAPS he was the liaison officer between insurance companies and the SAPS. He was chairperson and organiser of the meetings between the insurance houses and the SAPS, which sparked his interest in the insurance field. He then founded a company called Ultimate Insurance Corporate Services, which was based in Cape Town and aimed at assisting and training insurance house clerks regarding accident investigations and vehicle theft/hijackings.

After discovering a need in the industry for a call centre for assessors countrywide, a new company was founded and the company’s name was changed to Network Claims Assessors Group. We are now able to offer our services countrywide, as well as in neighbouring countries in the investigation and assessing of claims. Over the past 15 years Thys has hand-picked the “cream-of-the-crop” of assessors to enter into a Service Level Agreement with NCAG with whom he has attained vast and invaluable experience and knowledge in all fields of assessing.
