Mike Boon, CEO of Vulindlela, launched his first company, which later became Group Africa, in 1983. He developed an enterprise that at the end of 17 years operated in 25 countries with several thousand employees. It set out to be highly efficient, effective, and non-discriminatory with its values determined by the people that
worked in the business. This, at the height of apartheid!
A pioneer and adventurer, Mike has climbed in the Himalayas and reached the summit of Kilimanjaro twice: once with his teenage daughter. In 2002 he became the first person in history to paddle the length of the Zambezi River from source to mouth, solo and unsupported.
