Dominic Sewela awarded ABASA Private Sector CEO of the year.
In our recent video series called: Leading Barloworld, Group CEO Dominic Sewela stated: “For me, leadership is about stewardship and legacy. Those two things fundamentally define leadership in the sense that if you’re leading people because a baton was passed to you, you need to ensure that you leave those people better than when you started leading them.”
Tantaswa Fubu, Group Executive Human Capital and Transformation, accepted the ABASA Private Sector CEO of the year award on behalf of our Group Chief Executive Dominic Sewela at the gala dinner event on 26 November 2019.
