Sylvester Chauke, DNA Brand Architects Founder and Chief Architect

The Southern Africa region held its leg of the awards at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange where business leaders across 9 categories were celebrated and awarded.

Sylvester Chauke, DNA Brand Architects Founder and Chief Architect, received the Young Business Leader of the year 2017. 

“Our story as DNA Brand Architects is a simple one: to cascade a spirit of performance at a level that inspire millions and change how business is done on the African continent – from how we work with our people, our governance, principles and policies as a business, our participation with our communities and the impact that we create. This award represents a huge sense of pride, to be counted amongst those fine entrepreneurs before me and all those nominated. This moment belongs to my team of DNA AllStars who wake up every day to help us get closer to the dream,” says Chauke. 

At the core of the ethos that stimulates DNA Brand Architects is the belief that African businesses need to inject its mark in the rest of the world and that African Business Excellence is not a theoretical ideal but it is alive and active.  It is also evident that good governance and ethics are becoming even more important in the core DNA of a business leader on the continent.  It is no wonder this young leader hit the mark with the judging panel.

Amongst the winners on the night were: Business Woman of the Year to  Yolisa Phahle – CEO, M-Net, Innovator of the Year  to James Steere – Co-Founder, I-Drop Water, Industrialist of the Year to General Mthembu, Founder, Mthembu Tissue Converting, Entrepreneur of the Year toIvan and Lynette Saltzman – Founders, Dischem Pharmacies, Philanthropist of the Year toJannie Mouton – Founder and Chairman, PSG Group,  Company of the Year to Capitec Bank Holdings Ltd, Business Leader of the Year  Khalid Abdulla – Group CEO, African Equity Empowerment Investments (AEEI) and Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr Samuel Motsuenyane – Founder, Dr Sam Motsuenyane Rural Development Foundation.

Southern Africa winners will now go on to compete with East and West African winners in the AABL Finale on 30 November in Johannesburg, which will be broadcast on CNBC Africa on 7 December 2017.
