Board of Directors

Tshikululu insists on rigorous corporate governance standards.

Our values of care, excellence, innovation and integrity govern the way we operate and interact with our stakeholders.

We have a representative, unitary board of directors as required by the Companies Act, no. 71 of 2008, and the King III code on good governance. Five of the company’s seven directors are non-executive.

The directors have a duty to act in good faith, with due diligence and care in the best interests of the company, clients and all stakeholders. The directors are responsible for assessing organisational risks, and have sub-committees for Audit, Risk and Compliance; and Human Resources.

They are the guardians of Tshikululu’s values and ethics.
