“My key objectives at the end of my tenure are to look back and confidently say that I and the team have indeed delivered on the mandate, but most importantly, I would like to leave behind a Company that have made and shall continue to make a positive impact to the masses of people. A sustainable company that will continue to earn positive returns on investment for its shareholder,” Amadhila said.

“We should be intentional about alleviating the gap to ensure that no one including the rural areas is left behind. The Covid 19 lessons should not go to waste and we should not relax after the pandemic is gone. If anything, I have learned from the pandemic is that technology is the most powerful tool nowadays and it is also the most powerful weapon we have when it comes to fighting economic inequality, promoting social progressions such as health and education and so forth. To realise the goals require a collective collaboration among so many stakeholders and it is one of my goals to ensure that a blueprint is in place first and foremost and all systems are set to ensure smooth implementation,” he said.
Amadhila holds a Master of Commerce in Development Finance from the University of Cape Town, Master’s in Business Administration in Finance, a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration (UNAM) and a Bachelor of Accounting Degree from UNAM. He believes that transformation is a necessary catalyst of growth and teamwork is vital in increasing efficiency.
