Accenture has officially appointed Vukani Mngxati as new Country Managing Director for South Africa, effective 1 May 2018.
Mngxati key responsibilities include driving Accenture’s growth strategy in sub-Sahara Africa.
Mngxati will succeed William Mzimba, who has been Accenture’s country managing director for South Africa since 2006 and with Accenture for 18 years.
Mngxati has served as managing director of Accenture’s Health and Public Service business for the past five years. He started his career with Accenture in 2000 after completing his studies and left in 2006 to pursue his personal interests as an entrepreneur.
He returned to Accenture four years later with a deeper understanding of the African business landscape.
“Vukani truly understands the local market and has been delivering real value and impact for our clients through innovative digital solutions, making him a great choice to lead our business in sub-Sahara Africa,” said Gianfranco Casati, Accenture Group Chief Executive Officer for Growth Markets.
“As country managing director, Vukani will help clients streamline, transform and grow their businesses so they are future-ready.”
“In our rapidly changing digital society, many companies are at risk of being left behind unless they embrace digital technology company-wide,” said Mngxati.
“It is a journey that not only improves companies’ bottom lines, but is also a part of nation building, making this an incredibly exciting time to be able to help shape the future of Africa.”
Mngxati holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Business Information Systems and Accounting from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
