Met 32 jaar ervaring in die advertensiewese, bemarkingsaangeleenthede en die drukkers- en uitgewersbedryf, weet hierdie 64-jarige boorling van Edenvale so ‘ietsie’ van die media-industrie, en dra hy ook eerstehandse kennis van krisistye in die geskiedenis, soortgelyk aan die huidige COVID-19 pandemie, en hoe die mensdom weer anderkant uitgekom het. Sarel was onder andere besigheidsbestuurder van Business Day en verkope- en bemarkingsdirekteur van Times Newspapers. In die Media24-stal het hy die poste as onderskeidelik uitgewer en hoof-uitvoerende beampte van sowel die Sondagkoerant-afdeling, RCP Media, as News Media North, die uitgewers van Rapport, Beeld en Volksblad, beklee. Sarel was ook die stigter van Ads24 en algemene bestuurder van Groot FM (‘Die Groot Ontbyt), terwyl Rapport se uiters gewilde ‘Ons Sing Jou Taal’-reeks van CD’s sy breinkind was. Deesdae bedryf Sarel sy eie konsultantbesigheid, Lekker Media.
