About Dr Maureen Allem and Victor Snyders’ business:
Skin, Body & Health Renewal has hit double digits and is celebrating its 10th Birthday since opening its very first premises in Morningside, Johannesburg in July 2005. The business started when Dr Maureen Allem, a general practitioner with a special interest in aesthetic medicine, offered clients anti-ageing treatments, reversing and preserving their facial ageing process, from her home. Today Dr Allem works with a team of 19 medical doctors who are all united by their special interest in the holistic approach of preventing and treating the inward and outward signs of ageing. The doctors are supported by a team of 160 staff members, including 9 nurses.
Victor Snyders, Dr Allem’s partner, took on the role of CEO in the burgeoning business that same year (2005) – with the vision and mission to grow the company to be the best in its category. In 2007 during a visit in Cape Town they realised that there was an opportunity to replicate what they were doing in Joburg – in Cape Town. “We capitalised on the right opportunities that came our way. We had to quickly develop systems and processes that could effectively accommodate the fast growing business,” says Snyders. “It was at that time that we started a bursary scheme. We made it our mission to hire only the best therapists.”
Skin, Body & Health Renewal now offers diagnostic screening, full body scanning, hormonal assessments, nutraceutical supplements, intravenous detoxification and genetic screening. It is a truly holistic anti-ageing service. With 17 branches nationwide, Skin, Body & Health Renewal is the largest company offering holistic, anti-ageing solutions across the country.
“During the recent CEO Sleepout initiative, I was overseas and could not participate. For our 10 year anniversary we are looking beyond profits, to purpose and so we will donate 5% of each client’s treatment bill on the 7th of July to Girls & Boys Town – in line with the CEO Sleepout” adds Snyders.
