Ed Buchner  

Ed Buchner has had 40 years of varied, international Business experience in both South Africa and the USA (since 1985). His early years were spent working for South Africa’s largest Life Insurance Company on IT and Actuarial Services.

In 1967 he and some partners founded their own Company providing a variety of IT Services to clients. This Business was sold in 1973. In 1973, he was recruited by Cedric Tollemache, then CEO of the Diesel-Electric Organization of South Africa as Data Services Manager, to lead the computerization of their Business data. Diesel-Electric represented the German Company, Bosch GmbH in 13 Southern Africa countries. In 1985, he acquired one of the Diesel-Electric franchises in the Northern Transvaal. He owned and ran this Company, along with a sister Company in Hydraulic Equipment and Services until he sold it back to the parent company in 1985.

In 1985, Ed Buchner and his family settled in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he and Cedric Tollemache founded Texas-Carolina Trading Company and Texas-Carolina International. These companies specialized in Importing and Exporting a wide variety of goods to and from America. Customers were established in South Africa for computers, minerals, software, automotive and agricultural products; in Germany for chemical products and plastics and in China for consumer goods. Exports and Imports have each exceeded $100 million over the years. These activities were broadened to include Import/Export Finance and International Merger and Acquisitions.

Ed Buchner holds a Bachelor of Engineering and a Bachelor Degree with Honors in Computer Science from the University of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. He is based in Charlotte, North Carolina where he is the exclusive owner of the Texas-Carolina Group of Companies.
