Johannesburg, South Africa, 20 February 2017

The Black Management Forum (the  BMF) which  is at the forefront of transformation in Corporate South Africa applauds the exemplary leadership displayed by Country Chair of Shell Downstream South Africa and former President of the BMF, Bonang Mohale, in championing transformation. As he steps down from his position, he is leaving behind a stronger entity     than what he took over 8 years ago having delivered successive strong business results and a more transformed executive team.   

“Mr Mohale is an epitome of leadership excellence and we are proud to have him as one of our own and to claim the role we have played as the BMF in producing such astronomical business talent.   We would like to applaud him for the leadership he has demonstrated through his carefully considered succession planning by grooming his successor, Mr Hlonipizwe Mtolo, for the past 2 years. This validates the point we have been making that if companies perform thorough succession planning the leadership crises and reversal of transformation gains that we have been witnessing could be averted through such acts of decisive leadership” said the President of the BMF, Mncane Mthunzi.

The BMF wishes Mr Mtolo well in his new role which will be effective from 1 June 2017 at which time Mr Mohale is set to retire.

The Black Management Forum stands for the development and empowerment of managerial leadership primarily amongst black people within organisations and the creation of managerial structures and processes, which reflect the demographics, and values of the wider society.
