Meet the Fiery CEO

Verona Ismail is the powerhouse woman who heads up Tedcor.

After just five minutes with her, it’s patently clear that she has vision, mission and purpose, with the heart and personality to match.

Boasting some 20 years of experience in the finance and business administration field, she joined Tedcor in 2006 and wore all the hats, including accountant, financial manager and financial director. In 2016, she was appointed as the acting CEO after the company went through some restructuring. She now heads up the company permanently, having bought it outright in May 2017 and turning it into a 100% female black-owned venture.

Before Tedcor, Verona worked for Armcom (part of Bidvest) in the security and surveillance industry, and for Rosebank Clinic as an accountant in the medical industry. She is an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Business Management, which is affiliated to the Chartered Secretaries of South Africa. She has fulfilled her board level exams to qualify as a company secretary and has a higher diploma in bookkeeping.

Ms Ismail has taken personal responsibility for leading transformational change in the company, which includes BBBEE and EE goals, while at the same time promoting good business ethics and corporate governance.

As such, Verona is driven by the principles of King III – people, planet, profit. “I am totally sold on looking after people and the environment, while at the same time saving my clients money and being paid for the service that we render. I am inspired by people like OR Tambo, who recognised the powerful role of women in driving global change. I leap out of bed in the morning, excited about the prospect of playing my part in saving the planet, helping people escape the cycle of poverty, and getting paid for a job well done. I love what I do!”
