Bongani Mgayi

Marketing and Stakeholder Relations Director at Power Group

Bongani Mgayi is a director at the Power Group of Companies, one of South Africa's largest privately-owned construction companies. He is responsible for stakeholder relationships, marketing and branding, and serves on several of the company's boards, committees and sub-committees – namely the Social and Ethics Committee, Marketing Committee, BBBEE Committee, HIV/ AIDS Committee and Ethics Hotline Committee.

He also serves on the marketing, editorial and Small Business Academy committees at the University of Stellenbosch Business School and has had his own marketing company for more than 12 years.

In 2004 and 2005 Bongani worked on a concept to launch an online magazine. His role included founding the business, developing the business plan, business model, strategy and all marketing collateral. He also recruited the initial volunteer team, made up of an editor, art director and account executive. In his role as leading executive he was also responsible for business development and presentations to prospect clients and partners. After funding the project himself for close to a year, the business was shut down.

His past public and community activities include writing for business, travel and Christian publications, presenting a current affairs programme on TBN Africa, serving as chaplain to the Western Cape taxi associations, marriage officer, and currently serving on the executive committee of Unashamedly Ethical (an anti-corruption volunteer movement).
