ISUZU Motors South Africa won the business category of The Herald Nelson Mandela University Citizen of The Year 2023. The award was made during the annual gala event held on September 8 in Gqeberha.

The awards honour ten remarkable individuals or organisations nominated by the public who selflessly serve those in need, sharing hope and inspiration.

From the 50 nominations submitted, six judges had the tough task of whittling down the worthy nominees to select the category winners.

Accepting the award on behalf of Isuzu Motors South Africa, senior vice president for Human Capital, and Corporate Affairs, Mongezi Hermans says: “Isuzu Motors South Africa is a responsible corporate citizen of Nelson Mandela Bay which has a social obligation to help uplift our communities. It is crucial for us to ensure we walk in step with society in their path to success. The Citizen of The Year award is a validation of our social license to operate within this community. It sends a strong signal to the market and confirms that we are indeed a company with a soul”.

Isuzu continues to implement a bold and intentional corporate responsibility strategy focused on skills development, education, environmental management and providing support to natural disaster relief.
