About Me

I am a multifaceted leader, visionary, entrepreneur and philanthropist deeply dedicated to enhancing all aspects of my pursuits. My focus revolves around fostering entrepreneurship, driven by a forward-thinking vision, unwavering commitment and a fervor to propel South Africa and Africa forward.

My academic voyage commenced with a BSc in Industrial Psychology from the University of Cape Town, followed by an MBA from Thames Valley University. Professional experiences at The Coca-Cola Company and Procter & Gamble instilled in me the insight that success hinges on meticulous attention to detail, methodical goal-setting, and strategic planning to deliver tangible value.

In 2005, I delved into entrepreneurship, establishing Lionshare (www.lionshare.co.za), an investment enterprise with a diverse portfolio. Lionshare presently sustains a workforce of over 3500 individuals, surpassing an annual turnover of R10 billion. The company's investment and property holdings are valued at over R1.6 billion and R500 million, respectively.

The Lionshare portfolio encompasses notable ventures such as the Reef Hotel in downtown Johannesburg, a Scania dealership in Limpopo, fuel station expansions in collaboration with Kaap Agri under The Fuel Company, co-establishment of the Musina Intermodal Terminal, and participation in the Venture Capital advisory firm, Grovest.

Throughout the past 15 years until 2020, my journey has yielded an exceptional Internal Rate of Return (IRR) exceeding 40%, generating value for stakeholders, partners, associates, and employees alike.

Nonetheless, my true calling lies in contributing to the community. Through the establishment of the One Moment Foundation, I direct philanthropic initiatives towards addressing fundamental needs such as education, hunger, and shelter for the underprivileged in Africa, currently extending support to individuals in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique.

As socio-economic disparities persist in our region and continent, my steadfast dedication and core purpose remain centered on seizing opportunities to assist those in need.
