97 Companies were nominated in 20 categories which included Large Corporations and Listed Companies, Medium Size Businesses, SME’s, Most Promising Young Entrepreneur and Tourism.
Sandstone was invited to attend a sumptuous and glittering gala evening at the Silver Star Casino on 5 November 2016 to announce the Bronze, Silver and Gold Award winners. These were kept secret until the night of the event. During the evening Sandstone was first presented on stage with a Certificate for being nominated Business of the Year by the President of ROCCI Marietjie Esterhuizen and Darryl Rose of Business Partners. Later in the evening Sandstone was honoured and delighted to receive the Gold Winner Award for Tourism which was presented by Mr. Gerhard Ferreira – Chairman of SAICA and Mr. Mohammed Cassim – Segment Head of FNB.
Well done to the Sandstone team!
