Top 50 Women in African Businesses Revealed After Data-Driven Research

The list has started a movement to give African women something bigger to aspire to: running a large, complex business – not just SMEs as is often the goal of businesswomen.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, October 15, 2021 / APO Group / –

At a major virtual summit with over 1,000 high profile attendees, Africa.com revealed the names of Africa’s 50 most senior women at the company. The definitive list of women CEOs of Africa.com is distinguished by the fact that it is data driven. The researchers began by working with data provided by Bloomberg and assessing the more than 1,400 companies listed on Africa’s 24 stock exchanges.

The list yielded many more women from South Africa than from any other African country, followed by Nigeria and Kenya. The financial sector had more female CEOs than any other industry, closely followed by technology. Africa.com CEO Laura Joseph said: “Five companies had more than one woman on the list: Bidvest, Microsoft, Old Mutual, Sonatel and Sanlam.

The methodology consists of three sections: 1) CEOs of listed African companies with a market capitalization greater than US $ 150 million; 2) the division heads of African listed companies where the division itself would be valued at over $ 150 million if it were self-sustaining; and 3) Africa region leaders, or country leaders, of globally listed companies with a market capitalization of over $ 50 billion.

Africa.com President and Editor-in-Chief Teresa Clarke said: “The list has started a movement to give African women something bigger to aspire to: run a large, complex business – not just SMEs like this is often the case with business women. “
