Soon after participating in the JA South Africa Enterprise Programme in 2004, Sthembiso started his own printing business. Not only did Texta Print win him an award as one of ABSA’s Top Five Entrepreneurs in 2005, but it also funded his studies at the University of Johannesburg where he obtained a B Comm Honours Degree in Accounting in 2010.
Sthembiso completed his articles at Deloitte and qualified as a Chartered Accountant at the end of 2013. In the same year, he passed the public practice exam of the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors. He joined Standard Bank’s Corporate Finance team in January 2014, focusing on Mergers and Acquisitions advisory.
Sthembiso brings a passion for contributing to meaningful economic participation with him as the youngest new member of the JA South Africa Board.
