The House of Scorpio was established in 2008 when Sole Proprietor Gregory De Villiers took leave of the corporate world to return to his passion - communication and development.
Gregory De Villiers has a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of the North West including a council award for academic excellence in the field of Statistics.
After leaving the University, Gregory went on to begin his career in electronic communication solutions for Fox Publishing where he stayed until 2009, before formally leaving and running his own enterprise - The House of Scorpio. He has extensive experience in website design and development, having produced electronic solutions for such blue chip clients as MTN, Sasol, Eskom, ABSA and many others.
Our websites and communication solutions are developed with the express intention of delivering results. Our expertise are varied and we have enjoyed fantastic exposure in the hospitality and solutions industries, developing products specifically intended for the great spectacular.
The House of Scorpio operates out of Johannesburg and Mafikeng offices and has servers located in Keil, Germany, to ensure international availability of websites and services. Local hosting via MTN Network Solutions is also available to enterprises that serve only a South African market.
Beyond 2010 initiative
With South Africa poised and ready to host the great football extravaganza it is of concern that many of the potential beneficiaries have not thought past this event. Of even greater concern is the problem with authenticity and accessibility. Only officially recognised sponsors and endorsed providers may include allusions to the event in their communications. This is no reason not to be prepared though. It is no excuse.
With this in mind, the House of Scorpio fully endorses a new initiative to make the event and its impact sustainable past the final whistle. We need to look past 8 July 2010 to see how we, as a country, can continue to enjoy the fruits of our labour.
