The Sunday Times Top 100 Companies, in association with Johnnie Walker, is an annual awards banquet, held this year at the Sandton Convention Centre. The event celebrates those companies who have delivered the best return on investment, acknowledging the best-performing businesses on the JSE, based on their shareholder returns over the past five years.
At the glittering event in the company of South Africa’s most successful business men and women, Business Leader of the Year was awarded to Michael Jordaan, CEO of FNB, while the Lifetime Achievement Award went to Cyril Ramaphosa. Sunday Times editor, Phylicia Oppelt, says of the business community’s value of the annual results:
“This has become a highly-coveted accolade since it was first offered more than five decades ago. Part of what has made it so successful is that the business community itself voted to choose Jordaan and Ramaphosa, which is an endorsement of how their peers rate them.”

City Lodge Hotel Group was ranked 90th on the Top 100 list; just edging out ADvTECH, ARB Holdings, Phumelela Gaming and Leisure, BHP Billiton, Uranium One Inc, Tsogo Sun Holdings, Tongaat Hulett, Hudaco Industries, Octodoc Investments, and JSE.
Said Clifford Ross, Chief Executive of the City Lodge Hotel Group:
“We are pleased to again be ranked amongst the Business Times Top 100 Companies, a status we have held for several years. Our goal is to continue growing the company in the best interests of all of our stakeholders – shareholders, employees and guests alike.”
