One of Africa’s fastest growing media agencies, Carat SA, has won the coveted African Access Business Award for fast growing SMMEs. The award, considered the Oscars of South African business, is awarded to the company which has displayed the most significant growth in their market sector through best business practices and innovation, underpinned by strong financial performance.
Carat MD Quinton Jones says it was remarkable that the Carat team was not only being honoured by the industry, but that it was also achieving recognition from the wider business community. “I am overjoyed that the contribution of the Carat team, which has accomplished the unimaginable through sheer hard work and tenacity, has been honoured in this way,” he says.
Jones says that, as Carat expands its presence in Africa, the company hopes to set the trend for the industry on the continent. “We have made significant investments into training and development of staff in South Africa and across Africa. As Carat comes of age, we believe we are now strongly positioned as the agency of the future.”
