The Black Management Forum (BMF) would like to take this opportunity to congratulate BMF stalwart Bonang Mohale on his appointment as the Chairperson of the Bidvest Board. Mohale is known for building up extensive experience in various leadership roles, including serving as Vice President and Chairman of Shell downstream South Africa (Pty) Ltd, Shell South Africa Refinery (Pty) Ltd, and the South African Petroleum Refinery. His involvement in the BMF spans over 33 years since the 1980s and he has been a vocal and active proponent of transformation throughout. He has also received numerous awards in recognition of the contribution he has made to the business world and advocating for a transformed South Africa.
BMF President Andile Nomlala commended Mohale’s exemplary leadership by saying that “he is a capable leader and accomplished professional who espouses the values of the BMF. His steady and unfaltering leadership serves as a great inspiration to black professionals and will be invaluable to driving Bidvest forward”. "With him at the helm, the company is bound to take giant steps which will engage in business operations that contribute to all South Africans, particularly black Africans, from employment to supply chain and procurement opportunities”, Nomlala continued.
Nomlala went on to urge Mohale to “make Bidvest a proudly African company with a culture and management leadership that reflect the demographics of the society it operates in.” Mohales’s leadership, together with that of Bidvest CEO Designate, Nompumelelo Madisa is formidable and we wish the team every success.
