Gavin Mageni is Head of the SABS Design Institute, the official body mandated to develop South Africa’s national design capability. The institute does this by linking the public, business and government together to design the products, services and systems that create new socio-economic value for South Africa and the world. Design fills the gap between research and development and commerce, and grows businesses that focus on export, import substitution and increase the nation’s competitiveness.
Gavin boasts a vast experience across various disciplines within the banking sector. He believes in the notion of lifelong learning and holds a host of formal qualifications from various institutions.
