Website, strategy and leadership announcement
HH Global - South Africa Update
As part of our continued investment in South Africa, we are excited to announce the roll-out of our regional website. We have several new and on-going initiatives that reinforce our commitment to South Africa, which are detailed below:
Lindiwe Kangai has recently been appointed as Managing Director, South Africa. Lindiwe has a vast amount of experience within the local market, having run her own business following an extensive career including roles with Unilever, Coca-Cola, Nestle and Mondelez.
In addition to being partly owned and managed by a black female South African, 75% of our employees are also black South African females.
Our investment in regional leadership has enabled us to achieve B-BBEE level 4 accreditation status in May 2020. We are committed to empowering South Africans and we plan to improve our B-BBEE status to B-BBEE level 1 by 2022.
We provide bursaries for tertiary education to disadvantaged black South African students and support black SMEs with business development funding. We are also providing learnerships to support skills development for previously disadvantaged South Africans by supporting the Oliver House Early Childhood Development Centre, a non-profit organisation that contributes to the advancement of the disadvantaged people in South Africa.
We are excited to continue building our South African operation and our new regional website will play an important role in allowing us to effectively communicate with our South African clients and suppliers.
