SHAUN MICHAEL HAVERMANN IS NO LONGER WITH HOTELSTAFF
Shaun Michael Havermann is no longer associated in any way with HOTELSTAFF. He is using hotelstaff@gmail.co.za as his email address, which is giving clients the idea that he is still with us. He also uses a Hotelstaff twitter handle which is NOT ours. He was removed as an owner by us because he did not service clients well at all and was in fact in breach of his purchase contract, with the previous owner. Hotelstaff completely disassociates with him. Antonette Kennedy and her team own Hotelstaff Durban now. She is contactable on 083 6292865 Click here for more
