Knight Piésold hosts CESA YPF meet and greet!

Engineering consultancy, Knight Piésold’s office located in Sandton was the venue for the CESA Young Professionals Forum (YPF) meet and greet on the 13th March. The event also provided a platform to display the recent launch of Knight Piésold’s new brand identity, marking the most significant change in the company’s visual identity in 27 years.

The CESA YPF works towards creating a platform for young professionals to network, discuss challenges in the engineering industry and work on strategies to overcome these challenges. The networking event was well attended by YPs from different companies in the consulting engineering spectrum, including architects, civil, chemical and electrical engineers.

Welcoming guests to the event, Knight Piésold Managing Director, Vishal Haripersad urged YP’s to take control of their careers and work hard at proving their worth in the industry. The night’s guest speaker was Erik Kruger, founder of BetterMan, South Africa's biggest online community for ambitious and motivated men. Erik’s theme was ‘Self Growth’ as he provided several anecdotes regarding the power accretion: the accumulation of gradual growth.

The evening was brought to an end with a networking session where the YP’s got an opportunity to engage with CESA President, Neresh Pather and Vishal Haripersad.


Knight Piésold’s new logo rebrand marks the most significant change in the company’s visual identity in 27 years. The refreshed logo preserves its heritage while paving the way towards the next phase of the company’s evolution, one that is focused on continuing value creation through innovative, technically excellent solutions.
