Holding the reigns of Sun International’s multi-billion rand Time Square development in Menlyn, Pretoria is Brett Hoppé. With 26 years experience with Sun International in diverse roles and encompassing a blend of operational, gaming, marketing and business acumen, there is no better man to take on the challenge of bringing to fruition Sun International’s largest casino and entertainment complex in Southern Africa.

Previously, he was the General Manager of The Boardwalk complex in Port Elizabeth, which encompasses a casino, the five-star Boardwalk Hotel and Spa, retail section and The Boardwalk International Convention Centre.

Prior to moving to The Boardwalk, he was the General Manager at the iconic Sun City in the North West Province. During his time at Sun International, he has enthusiastically embraced every opportunity to grow expertise in all aspects of the hospitality, gaming and entertainment sectors.

Within Sun International, he has held various positions at the head office in Sandton. Between 2007 and 2008, he was the Director of Sales and Marketing for Sun International whilst the company developed the Port Ghalib Resort for the M.A.Kharafi Group in Marsa Alam, Egypt.

With construction of Time Square nearing completion, Hoppé is thoroughly engrossed in what is certain to be the most demanding and exciting period of his career. Time Square will be Sun International’s flagship property when it opens in April, comprising a state of the art casino, hotel, conference facilities, restaurants and retail outlets. It will also house an expansive 8 500-seat Arena; the only venue of its kind in Pretoria, playing host to international and local concerts, exhibitions and lifestyle events.
