Agizo Solutions has been granted an award for the Consulting Firm of the Year 2020. The accolade was granted by the SA Professional Services Awards sponsored by Sanlam and W. Consulting.

Professionals from various organisations were set to gather at a gala dinner in Montecasino Ball Room on the evening of 19 March 2020 to honour the best amongst them. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the SAPSA Awards were indefinitely postponed. The organisers of the event have subsequently undertaken to progressively announce the winners for the 2019/2020 edition prior to hosting a gathering for all finalists and guests. This marks the fifth edition of the Awards following a rigorous process of determining winners through strict criteria.

Janette Minnaar, the chair of the adjudication panel explained how the winners were determined.

“Individuals were judged based on a host of attributes including demonstration of leadership skills, changing of paradigms and innovation within the bounds of available resources. We also conferred a number of Lifetime Achievement Awards to deserving recipients who had served their professions faithfully for many years,” said Minnaar.

The firm awards were based on the following criteria – business growth, customer service, technical excellence, contribution to the community, contribution to the profession, transformation record and commitment to ethics and professionalism. The criteria were not equally weighted, a strong showing in one category was sufficient to put the firm above the rest.

On receiving his trophy and certificate for the Award, CEO of Agizo Solutions Matheri Kangethe expressed that he was truly honoured.

“Thanks to SAPSA for this recognition of Agizo’s contribution in Management Consultancy particularly within the field of Geomatics. We are proud of the cutting edge scientifically informed solutions we have developed that continue to guide decision makers on land utilization and optimization. Agizo continues to support multiple vertical markets with imaging and modelling solutions using earth observation products from drones and satellites and seeks to become a leader in this space. Thank you once again and we look forward to continue contributing to the South African economy and society,” said Kangethe.
