We are proud to confirm that our CEO, Jonathan Goldberg, was announced co-winner of the Business Person – Entrepreneur award at the annual ABSA Jewish Awards ceremony held at a gala event at the Sandton Sun recently.
We also extend our congratulations to Marc Sternberg, MD of Spark ATM systems, who shared this award with Johnny as well as the other category winners, being Gerald Leissner (Community Service), John Moshal and family (humanitarian), Alec Wapnick (Lifetime Achievement), Prof Barry Schoub (Arts, Science, Culture and Sports), Asher Bohbot (Listed) and Selwn Smith (Unlisted).
This event has become one of the highlights of the Jewish social calendar and has been hosted by the SA Jewish Report for the past thirteen years. ABSA and Chivas are major sponsors of this event.
Past winners of some of the categories include former President Nelson Mandela (1999), Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu (2000), Danny K and Kabelo (2011), Raymond Ackerman (2010), Gill Marcus (2000), Patrice Matsepe (2004), Professor Phillip Tobias (2002), Dr Ali Bacher (2003), Johnny Clegg (2007) and Pieter-Dirk Uys (2008).
Well done, Johnny!
“The award was thoroughly deserved & it was my good fortune to have been in a position to nominate him. East Londoners always have to be so much better than others to get recognition. Also he could not have achieved the success he has without the back up of competent staff so you & all who work for Johnny & his group should also take some of the accolades.”
