Coca-Cola South Africa (CCSA) is proud to announce that it has been named one of SAÂ’s Leading Managers for 2011. The Corporate Research Foundation (CRF) Institute, South AfricaÂ’s leading employer brand and research company, has released the 2011/2012 Tribute Edition of their annual publication that profiles 12 companies as critical case studies in their industries.

“We are incredibly proud to have been named Best Managers in the Food and Beverage Industry,” says David Ssegawa, Coca-Cola South Africa Human Resources Director, “We are delighted to share our insights/key learnings with future business leaders, trend watchers and media watchdogs, showcasing our organisation and team as the case study on management and leadership for our industry.”

Common Trait in Managers at Coca-Cola SA

According to Samantha Crous, General Manager of the CRF Institute, there has never been a more significant time to examine leadership philosophies to gauge what works and what does not. The report reveals that the best performing managers have a common focus on innovation, a robust vision, and empowering people, as core elements of their success.

Crous reiterates that innovation was a common theme in the best practice identified in the 12 companies profiled. “Innovation is the life blood of these companies. These are true benchmarks for success,” comments Crous. “These companies have been able to make remarkable strides in so many areas of business”.

Being innovative is essential to CCSA in meeting the needs of their customers. William Egbe, President of CCSA says, “The future will include custom-design drinks. Customers of the future won’t merely accept what we give them, they will want to create their own drinks – and that is what we are striving to deliver.”
