BOSASA Operations fosters regional growth in South African Development Council (SADC) countries. Gumede pursues strategic alliances and networks with important stakeholders to promote investment and expertise in neighbouring countries. For this Gumede is well placed, given BOSASA’s long and proud history of security service contracts with South African gold mines dating back to 1995. Those early service contracts established BOSASA’s reputation for innovative technology applications in high-risk environments.

Gumede represents BOSASA in the mining industry and furthers the group’s interests in Mozambique. As one of BOSASA’s leaders he empowers its people to express their personalities and strengths in a team environment. With them he contributes to the economic and social development of South Africa and its neighbours.
