Antony’s notable business accomplishment was the founding (1990) and building of Brait, South Africa’s premier private equity business. It is regarded as being the pioneer of private equity in the region and played an important role in bringing both domestic and international investors into the asset class. Brait restructured in 2011, in effect turning itself into a listed investment company, raising sufficient shareholder capital to sustain its investment programme. He transitioned to a non-executive position at Brait and exited by governance commitments in 2013.
In addition, Antony has had extensive experience in business building including: The Strategy Group (a 30-person unit at Deloitte); Rockwood, as well as investment skills and a wealth of board experience. Antony is the published author of “The Winning Way: Lessons from super-performing South African companies”.
