Our new Chief Human Resources Officer shares her vision to help Tiger Brands fulfil its potential as an iconic South African organisation.







Getting back to basics
We need to lay the foundation for winning performance. This means putting a lot of effort into standardising processes across all business units, harmonising and modernising conditions of employment and benefits, and implementing an enabling technology and digital platform to support those processes.

Building a diverse talent base
Not only in terms of race and gender, but in all other aspects too – like skills, mindsets, generations, and so on. This is vital to succeed as a business of today and of tomorrow and in the tough business climate we’re operating in.

Unleashing the power of our leaders
We need to enable them to inspire winning performance.

Creating a winning culture that enables a ‘great place to work’
To do this, we must bring our purpose and values more to the centre of who we are and how we execute our business priorities.”











EMPLOYMENT
HISTORY
S’ne brings with her a wealth of experience in the fields of strategy and HR. Prior to the last 10 years at Sasol – where the last office she held was that of Senior Vice President: Group Human Capital – she was at Shell for 10 years, based both in South Africa and in the Netherlands, where she worked in Shell’s global HR strategy team.

GROWING
UP
“I was born and raised on the South Coast of Durban – in a place called KwaMakhutha, near Amanzimtoti. I grew up close to the beach – I still love the sea and the beach. The moment my feet hit the beach sand, I calm down. The moment I see the blue ocean, everything becomes possible. My kids are the same, although they were born in Gauteng.”

BEST ADVICE
EVER RECEIVED
“Always be passionate about what you do; work hard; do your best; be authentic; respect everyone, no matter what their position or situation is in society. This came from my mom – she not only gave me that advice consistently, but also lived and role-modelled it. She also taught me to always keep my faith as my foundation.”

SOME THINGS ON
HER BUCKET LIST
“I want to travel to Croatia and Greece. I’d also love to start and fund a bursary programme specifically for black girls. Lastly, in my old age, my dream is to move to Franschhoek and open a B&B!”

MOST-LOVED
TIGER PRODUCT
“It’s a toss-up between Purity Elizabeth Anne products and Jungle Oats. I guess at the end of the day, Jungle Oats wins – I can serve it to my family or I can make it for myself with honey and crushed nuts – amazing!”

FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND A
SUNDAY MORNING
“Let’s make it a Saturday morning – for me, Sunday mornings are a rush, getting everyone up and ready for church. On Saturdays, we have a family tradition – a full breakfast made by me. It’s a great way for us to reconnect as a family. On weekdays, I usually come home late and our helper cooks. So, Saturday mornings are my chance to nurture my own family.”
