Ms. Nomavuso Patience Mnxasana, a Chartered Accountant, is a Non-Executive Director of AWCA Investment Holdings.
She received her training from Deloitte and Touche. After completing her articles she spent one year at Deloitte before joining Sizwe Ntsaluba VSP (formerly Nkonki Sizwe Ntsaluba). During her tenure at Sizwe Ntsaluba she specialized in consulting, internal auditing and the attest functions. She started the Corporate Governance division that housed the internal audit services, as she identified this opportunity during the introduction of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA). She was also involved in staff development and training as a staff partner for five years. Some of her major clients included, Eskom, South African Airways, MTN and Sentech.
She left Sizwe Ntsaluba as a senior partner and a member of the executive committee in 2006 to join Imperial Group as Group Audit and Risk Head, and until September 2010, was a member of the Imperial Bank Board. Imperial Group is an international diversified group with seven major divisions; Car Rental, Motor Division, AMH, Logistics, Insurance, Aviation and Leasing. She successfully implemented risk management in the group both locally and internationally, as a result she obtained a good understanding of the various industries within which Imperial Group operates. Having recognised the shortage of black qualified Chartered Accountants in South Africa she introduced Training Outside Public Practice (TOPP) within Imperial Group. When she left the group she had eleven TOPP Trainees spread across the group and continued to assist Imperial Group on a consulting basis for six months to ensure they received adequate training.
