CGF’s Honorary Patrons fulfil an immensely important role within CGF and who provide, amongst other, support to CGF’s drive to see more companies becoming equipped to deal with the increasing demand to adopt and implement sound governance practices.
From our humble beginnings in 2004, CGF Research Institute (Pty) Ltd has steadily grown to become a recognized brand amongst many corporate businesses, specializing in producing quality, peer reviewed desktop research in topics that cover corporate governance, risk and compliance. Clearly, our successes cannot singularly be attributed to the company alone, neither its individuals. CGF’s success has been assisted through the growth of its customer base, as well as the steadfast support of its Corporate Patrons.
Our Corporate Patrons are committed to support and encourage the corporate governance aims and initiatives being promoted by CGF, specifically toward sustainable and sound business practices across all South African businesses - large and small. They support CGF’s core business philosophy which is built upon trust, respect and solid business relationships. Our Corporate Patrons themselves are also committed to sound business practices of governance and business ethics within their own organisations.
