Fizz Marketing empowers long standing staff and transforms to majority black shareholding

Fizz Marketing, specialists in tailored event management services, has signed an empowerment deal that sees its black shareholding increase to 50.2%, and is officially a B-BBEE Level 2 company.

Fizz Marketing, a wholly female-owned entity, has cemented its ongoing empowerment efforts with a deal making long-standing employee Thabile Mdletshe a 25.1% shareholder in the company, and further established a broad-based black trust (Fizz Imbizo Trust) an employment equity scheme established to allocate a further 25.1% of shares to staff.

“Empowerment is at the heart of the Fizz Marketing company culture,” says founder and Director Celeste Whitaker. “Thabile Mdletshe, who has been within the company for ten years, has established her value as a true partner in the business, and we agreed that the time had come to formalise our long-standing partnership.”  

“Through the skills transfer and experience I have gained in my eleven-year journey with Fizz Marketing to date, I am now well positioned to help lead the company into the next decade of growth,” says Mdletshe.
