The Core Group - background

The first 20 years

Previously known as Havenga Rossouw Viljoen Consultation Services (HRV), The Core Group was founded by Mr Daan Havenga in 1993. Through hard work, determination and a mission of delivering a service by being pro-active, utilising technology and technical knowledge to the maximum, clients’ expectations were exceeded through the adding of value to each client.
HRV was more than just an auditor; HRV was the business partner each client needed to succeed in the very competitive economic climate. Through the past 20 years HRV expanded to be more than just an audit and accounting firm. HRV lived up to their mission statement of being pro-active by expanding their services constantly.
