DURBAN – At the 7th FNB KZN Top Business Awards, held at Southern Sun’s Elangeni and Maharani Hotel, Gold Circle (Pty) Ltd emerged as KZN’s leading Company in the category “Recreation, Education and Social Services.”
Chairman Robert Mauvis was on hand to receive the presentation and commented that, following on the heels of another fantastic Vodacom Durban July, it was indeed a great honour for Gold Circle to be recognised as the leader in its field in KwaZulu Natal and a major contributor to economic growth in the Province.
“To be recognised amongst such quality companies as Tongaat Hulett, Corobrik, Mr Price and Sun Coast Casino, who all won their respective categories, is a major feather in the cap for Gold Circle and indeed also the sport of horseracing,” he added.
The judging criteria included the Company’s contribution to the economy of KwaZulu Natal and the principles embodied in the 2009 King Report on Corporate Governance (King III). Factors such as brand and reputation, stakeholder relations and goodwill, environmental sustainability as well as social responsibility and quality of governance are all taken into account.
The event was attended by dignitaries and leaders from various Government departments, municipalities, organisations and businesses across the Province. – Gold Circle.
