Oliver Top Empowerment Awards Finalist

April has turned out to be an exciting month for the Graduate Institute of Financial Sciences (GIFS)!

As we gear up for the official launch of GIFS, we are thrilled to receive news that our CEO, Kershen Pillay, has been named a finalist in two categories at the prestigious Oliver Top Empowerment Awards!

Pillay is in the running for the Young Achiever of the Year Award and is a finalist in the Education and Training category. This is the third year in a row that he’s been acknowledged by the Oliver Top Empowerment Awards. “It is truly a humbling experience to be shortlisted among some of the country’s brightest minds in business and this, in itself, is rewarding,” he says.

The Oliver Top Empowerment Awards recognise companies and individuals for their contribution and commitment to empowerment in South Africa, acknowledging the efforts of businesses, civil society, the public sector and truly outstanding individuals.

The finals take place in Johannesburg on 11 April 2019. We’re holding our breath and crossing fingers!
