As managing director of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa, an automotive retailing original equipment manufacturer, Thato Magasa oversees the company’s operations locally and in Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Zambia with the help of a franchised retail dealer network.
Magasa ended the 2021 calendar year with sales up by 71.5% from the previous year. This meant that the company was operating above pre-Covid-19 levels. Even more importantly, “through environmental, social and governance initiatives, we are able to directly contribute towards a better South Africa,” says Magasa.
Magasa keeps being impressed and surprised by the resilience of South Africans despite the challenges we face. This also motivates him to work towards reducing unemployment and inequality in our country. He says he would, however, like to make more time for exercise. He advises the youth of South Africa to never lose their work ethic and to be patient with themselves.
We are able to further contribute towards the betterment of our society through the growth and development of our staff.
