WE ARE PROUD TO INTRODUCE OUR MEMBER OF THE MONTH,
PERTUNIA ELIZABETH SIBANYONI
Pertunia Sibanyoni is the CEO of InspectaCar (Pty) Limited. She oversees business operations for franchise and financial services and is responsible for building the InspectaCar brand.
Pertunia hails from Witbank, Mpumalanga. Born to both the late Reuben and Meidjie Sibanyoni, Pertunia is the fifth out of six children. She has always had a curious but eager-to-succeed approach, doing things outside the norm and, being daddy’s little girl, having the drive to follow her dreams.
She is a proud mother to her only son eight-year-old Akhumzi, popularly known as “AK”, who has been her mini pillar of strength. He inspired her to take up Latin American dancing professionally. AK himself has been successful in many provincial, national and international hip hop only competitions.
Pertunia is a graduate of the University of Durban Westville and holds a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Psychology and Physiology, and a post graduate diploma and Honours in Marketing Management. Pertunia recently completed a Leadership Programme from The University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).
Pertunia is and has always been a change-maker, and a trail blazer which is evident in her ability to work in a male dominated industry. Prior to her appointment as CEO, Pertunia was the retail transformation manager at Shell South Africa where her career spanned 12 years. (She was the first Black African female Area Manager in the company). Her appointment into the Shell Graduate Recruitment programme offered her an opportunity to engage in a leadership initiative with graduates from across the globe in The Hague, Netherlands. She was also a Board Member for the Shell Transformation Board and a Director for the Ngwaabe Integrated Energy Centre and Compliance Project Lead for the Shell Refining and Marketing Merger.
She is the founder of the AkhuPeliza Foundation which is dedicated to addressing and delivering on social benefits of a community, including i.a, a collaboration with the Visionary Youth to make a meaningful difference and build confidence levels to the young girls in Soweto by providing sanitary towels to the needy learners, and sponsoring 71 matric dance dresses and 300 packs of sanitary towels 3 months before their matric examinations.
Pertunia is passionate about empowerment and women’s leadership as well as mentorship. She has inspired and continues to inspire people in showing the way and proving what’s possible, especially (but not exclusively) for women.
