OUR PRIDE

We are in the process of assembling a dynamic and ​diverse​ board of directors to chart the way forward into the future.

IKE CHA

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Founder

Ike Cha is a leader, visionary, entrepreneur and philanthropist who seeks to add value to everything he says, does and the lives he touches. He is an advocate for entrepreneurs and his ethos, vision, drive and passion is to contribute to South Africa and Africa’s progress.

He studied Industrial Psychology at UCT and followed this up with an MBA and went on to spend his early and mid-working years at Coca-Cola and Procter and Gamble. Here he learned that the devil is always in the detail, the art of systematically conceptualising a clear end- goal and the importance of planning and thinking things through to add value an investment.

After leaving corporate life in 2005, Ike set up his own business with a diversified portfolio of which his most well-known investments are the Reef Hotel in downtown Johannesburg, the Sand River Resort in Limpopo, buying and significantly growing fuel stations and merging it into The Fuel Company, co-founding the Musina Intermodal Terminal, and investing in the advisory firm, Grovest. This 15-year journey has yielded an IRR of 40% plus adding value to

all stakeholders.

Giving back to the community forms a greater part of Ike’s DNA and is his natural calling and reason for being. Through founding the One Moment Foundation, he has grouped his philanthropy efforts under one umbrella to address our three basic needs: education, hunger and shelter for the homeless.
