South Africa’s leading majority black-owned professional services firm, SekelaXabiso, was awarded the Accounting Firm of the Year for 2017 at the South African Professional Services Awards held at the Montecasino Ball Room on 1 February 2018.
The awards, which are currently in their third edition, honour the best in accounting, management, consulting, architecture legal, quantity surveying and engineering. CEO of the Waverly-based firm Lindani Dhlamini said, “We are deeply humbled to have been selected as this year’s recipient of the Accounting Firm of the Year, having been selected amongst some of the top professional services firms in South Africa.”
She added, “This award comes at a time when our industry is under so much scrutiny and it demonstrates that SekelaXabiso is on the right track.”
Started in 2012 as a result of the merger between Sekela Consulting and Xabiso Chartered Accountants, SekelaXabiso has grown to become one of the most transformed entities in the financial services sector. SekelaXabiso has over 150 employees across the country with offices in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo.
SekelaXabiso impressed the judging panel due to its commitment to ethics, demonstration of customer service, business growth, contribution to transformation to the professional service as well as the community
Dhlamini concluded, “We would like to thank the South African Professional Services Awards for creating a platform that not only celebrates excellence in the workplace but also brings attention to services and industries that are not traditionally in the limelight. Acknowledgements like these do not only inspire our team to continue the great work they have been doing but inspires all young South Africans who are also trying to get into this industry by showcasing to them that they too can make it.”
