Kiel Van Daal founded digital communications agency Digilante three years ago.
The business has been able to snap up blue-chip and corporate clients in a very short amount of time and is turning over around $2.3 million.
Van Daal says this year he will have his hands full thanks to winning a contract to rebrand the Australian Rugby Union.
