Transformation at Deloitte

The journey continues

From as early as the 1970s, Deloitte has been at the forefront of business transformation. We are proud of the fact that for 19 years we have had three consecutive black CEOs, with Lwazi Bam becoming the first African Black CEO in 2012.

Forty years on from the qualifying of South Africa's first black chartered accountant, and more than 20 years on from the advent of  our democracy, Deloitte remains as committed as ever to the call for  transformation in corporate South Africa.


This is not something we do, this is who we are. We believe that transformation is  an important mechanism to:
  • Set right the imbalance of the past
  • Reflect the country’s demographics
  • Create equal opportunities for education and employment
  • Create and sustain our culture of inclusion

Deloitte South Africa’s partners and directors have committed to  achieving a 51% black ownership target by 2020, with at least 35%  female ownership.

While great strides have been made to bridge the inequality gap in  South Africa, Deloitte, business, government and society in general  all recognise that much more needs to be done. Deloitte is proud  of its achievements to date and remains committed to being at the  forefront of this change.
