Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber Top 40 under 40

Zoe Waters – Top 40 Under 40

The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
Zoe Waters (33), is the Finance and Corporate Services Director at the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber.

Waters has always been an entrepreneur at heart. 2002 saw her launch Sober Chauffer, which was later sold to become Good Fellas.

In 2008, a love of scrapbooking led her to open up Scrapaholics, a retail space that has since morphed into a thriving online store. Recognition soon followed, as Waters was named a finalist in the Emerging Entrepreneurs category of the BWA’s Regional Business Achievers Awards in 2009.
As Finance and Corporate Services Director at the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, Waters has a large portfolio, but she relishes the challenge. “The Company Secretary role has been extremely satisfying for me,” says Waters, “especially in line with King III and the new companies act. Guiding the Business Chamber into a new era has been an invigorating challenge.”

Waters – who says a new business venture is never far off the cards – is community-minded. In 2007 she launched a fundraising and awareness campaign for South Africans Against Drunk Driving. She raised sponsorship to climb Kilimanjaro and handed over a substantial donation cheque to the organization.

“I’ve never thought I couldn’t do something,” she explains. “My driving force is the need to make a difference.” Waters serves on the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism Board as Chair of the Finance / HR sub-committee.

The Top 40 Under 40 list, an NMBBC initiative, was compiled from nominations and selected by an independent panel at the NMBBC. The end result is a showcase of talented and ambitious young businesspeople from diverse sectors in Nelson Mandela Bay. From 7 December 2011, MyPE showcases one under 40 achiever a day.

Here are some close ups:

Products used:
