Bongani Phakathi has been nominated for the 2022 CHRO Awards

The human resources executive at Assore has been nominated for his role in HR.

Bongani Phakathi, our most recent nominee for the 2022 CHRO Awards, has more than 20 years of experience in HR. In 2018, he joined Assore, a mining company, with interests in Iron Ore, Manganese and Chrome, owning both smelters and mines.

Bongani completed a BCom, but never pursued the chartered accountant career path, and instead ended up in industrial relations. He also holds an industrial relations degree from UKZN, and has completed a Senior Managers Strategic Insights programme at the University of the Witwatersrand Business School.

Bongani has been exposed to all aspects of operations, management and corporate governance, and had experience as a non-executive director. He has served as chairman of the board of the then Blue IQ.

The annual CHRO Awards recognise CHROs of listed companies, large corporations, state-owned entities and government institutions and award them for outstanding performance and leadership. Top CHROs, VIPs and business partners will attend the event to enjoy networking, entertainment and a scrumptious dinner.
