Kim Faclier, GoIndustry DoveBid property division’s MD, has been in the business since 1991. Her experience includes every real estate sector from commercial and residential to industrial and auctions.

Faclier is known as a connector of note, which has earned her numerous awards including the Five-Star Women in Property Network Award 2010. In 2012, Faclier won CEO magazine’s South Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government Award, identifying her as one of the country’s inspirational achievers. Faclier’s most recent – and, in her words, “greatest achievement” – came in November 2015 when she won South Africa’s National Business Awards Fast Growth Award for her company’s explosive expansion in the property sector.

GoIndustry DoveBid SA began operations under Faclier’s leadership in 2011 after the company recognised a gap in the market for auctioning properties online. In the past two years, the company has concluded nearly R1bn worth of real estate transactions. Faclier’s top priority remains ensuring business transactions are mutually beneficial, even if there is no personal or business financial gain.
