At Shell SA, we see ourselves as partners to those on whom our business depends. As such, we believe we have an important role to play in working with them to realise their goals and ambitions.

Andrew Molefe has been a part of the Shell SA family for more than three decades. Having started out as a petrol attendant – and risen through the ranks with an inspiring, ‘can do’ attitude – he today runs his own service station in Kagiso, a township in the Krugersdorp area where he is from.

“Shell identified me as a potential retailer and then placed me in its transformation programme in order to train me,” he explains, “It was something new – being a retailer. It wasn’t like being a site manager and there were many challenges along the way, but Shell provided me with all the support I needed”.

Explains Hloniphizwe Mtolo, the Shell SA Country Chair and Retail GM, “We play a big role in terms of enterprise development, developing entrepreneurs and developing the communities in which we do business. Of importance, for us, is how we involve the communities in our activities”.
