This merger of two of South Africa’s largest black accounting firms has given the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) in the accounting profession a major boost.
Nonkululeko Gobodo, executive chairman of SizweNtsaluba & Gobodo, says: "The accounting profession needs another big player other than the ‘big four’. We intend multiplying the firm in terms of number of staff and revenue within a short space of time. It will be the new house for black professionals."
Victor Sekese, CEO of SizweNtsaluba & Gobodo says: "We are currently playing in the same space as the ‘big four’. We are an audit firm accredited by the Johannesburg Securities Exchange (JSE), the New York Stock Exchange and the Luxembourg Exchange." The firm is also expanding its footprint across Africa and has ambitious plans to broaden its base internationally, says Mr Sekese.
On behalf of all member firms, MI would like to congratulate SizweNtsaluba & Gobodo on this exciting development.
