Mercantile congratulates Trudi Makhaya

01 April 2018

Mercantile Bank would like to congratulate Trudi Makhaya on her appointment as economic advisor to President Cyril Ramaphosa and to wish Trudi well in her new role.

Trudi has been Consulting Economist to Mercantile since 2015, when she founded an advisory firm focused on competition policy and entrepreneurship.  She has served as an advisor to several companies and has worked for Deloitte South Africa, Genesis Analytics and AngloGold Ashanti.

As an entrepreneur herself, Trudi truly understands the challenges and opportunities faced by small and medium-sized businesses in South Africa. As Mercantile Bank, we see her appointment as an encouraging indication that government recognises the importance of this sector in stimulating job creation and economic growth.
