Avis supports Ilembe Business Community
Avis kicked off 2015 on a generous note by sponsoring a vehicle to the iLembe Chamber of Commerce’s Business Support Centre. The vehicle will be used by business support staff to serve the business communities in the four local municipalities within the iLembe district namely Ndedwe, Maphumulo, Kwadukuza and Mandeni.
Cobus Oelofse, CEO of the iLembe Chamber, says, that the vehicle sponsorship was yet another symbol of the commitment and involvement of Avis with the local business community in the iLembe district of KZN.
“Avis is a long standing corporate member of the iLembe Chamber and through the availability of the sponsored vehicle Avis will further extend its involvement in developing smaller businesses which operate within the informal economies of rural areas. The slogan displayed on the vehicle “Driving Business Together” could not have been more appropriate and reflects the passion of both Avis and the Chamber,” added Oelofse.
The Chamber’s Business Support Centre Outreach programme; together with the Local Economic Development Departments of the various local municipalities, implements workshops, seminars, business clinics and one-on-one sessions to remote businesses.
Keith Rankin Avis Chief Executive, Southern Africa, says “At Avis we acknowledge the great work that the iLembe Chamber does for the KZN community and feel honoured to be assisting in making a difference.”
