Fewer black Top 40 CEOs today than in 2012 - Jack Hammer Executive Report

Findings from the 2015 Jack Hammer Executive Report - the third annual report of its kind, due for release later this year - show that the face of the country’s Top 40 leadership has stayed very much the same since Jack Hammer’s previous CEO research in 2012.

More importantly; very little is set to change in the foreseeable future.

The findings also show that the proportion of CEOs who are black South African has fallen from 15% three years ago to 10% at the time of this year’s research.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Debbie Goodman-Bhyat, CEO of Jack Hammer Executive Headhunters.

The numbers aren’t as bad as they look as the survey only considers the Top 40 companies.
