The IQ Business Group, headed by group chief executive officer Dirk Ackerman, runs programs for black economic empowerment, an accelerated program of affirmative action for South Africa s black majority population.
The IQ Business Group and The HPL Group have set a final seal on an exciting business partnership.
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA: A decision taken some months’ ago by The IQ Business Group’s (IQ) senior management team to acquire an experienced learning company was the catalyst that today sees the acquisition of the HPL Group (HPL), comprising of both Hi-Performance Learning (Pty) Ltd and CUDA Technologies (Pty) Ltd.
Launching and making a company operational in a few months is no easy task, but achievable with the right partners. The IQ Business Group (IQ) recently partnered with AA Autobay to design and implement the company’s online marketplace. This service assists customers to buy, sell, finance and insure pre-owned vehicles privately in a safe and cost-effective environment. The opening of four new branches in Johannesburg on April 10 follows the successful pilot of AA Autobay in Pretoria.
The general belief among South Africa’s major financial institutions is that to really understand its small business customers, the investment in time and money - not to mention the lengthy lead times - is enormous, and that it is therefore simply not feasible.
