The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
Jacques Pienaar (33), is a Senior Consultant at KPMG in their Management Consulting division in Port Elizabeth.
Over the past six years he has been involved in projects of varying scope and size, relating to infrastructure and economic development in the Eastern Cape. This included work for the Motherwell Urban Renewal Project, the Uitenhage Dispatch Development Initiative, ASGISA-EC, the ECDC and most recently, the development of an Integrated Public Transport System for the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. His role on this project involved work on the selection and design of appropriate business entities for potential operators of the new system. “The ultimate result of this project,” says Pienaar, “is intended to be a safer, more efficient and reliable transport service for the city.” With infrastructure development foreseen to be a major factor in the growth of the South African economy, Pienaar is excited to be playing his part in contributing to the development of both the region and the country.
“I am motivated by projects that allow me to make a difference.”
