My Bio:
Made my first Million at age 24, before age 25 founder/Group Exec Chair. of leading comp.in distr. of financial services with a national branch network, close to a million customers with R200 Mill market cap, all in less than 5 years. before age 30, I merged Ferreira Group with Unibank Holdings and 5 fully owned Subsidiaries: Global, Constantia and Emerald Insurance Companies, Union Finance and Rubenstein Investments with a 2 million client base, 4000 Sales and Administrative employees and with well over 5 Billion Rand in loan advances. ABSA bought the entire share capital of UniFer in a Multi-Billion rand transaction, the 2nd largest aquisition made by ABSA every since the purchase of Bankfin. As 100% Shareholder ABSA delisted UniFer. I got approached by 4 COSATU unions representing 850 000 black workers to negotiate the buy back of Ferreira Group from ABSA. In a multi-million rand transaction we bought Ferreira Group, with union consortium as 70% shareholder and as Group MD/Founder together with management consortium as 30% shareholder and changed the name to Lesaka Holdings. In my first year as Group MD of Lesaka i grew the net income with 300%. During my 2nd year as MD i became very ill as a result of a flesh eating bacteria in my soft tissue. I've lost the usage in both my hands and resigned from Lesaka as MD. After a full recovery, i focused fulltime on my appearances as a Public Speaker with a very interesting story to tell.
