Liquid Intelligent Technologies South Africa on Monday said it had joined hands with Tendai Mtawarira aka “The Beast” in a partnership to further fortify the company’s long-standing commitments.
The commitments include inspiring confidence, building trust, and investment towards building a country that is digitally connected and leaves no South African behind.
Liquid said the 36-year-old retired Sharks and Springbok Loosehead Prop was carefully chosen to reflect company values of working with trust, ingenuity, value-centricity, and respect as well as to create a deeper social impact in the country.
Facilitated by Roc Nation Sports, the partnership officially launched on 1 September and includes The Beast working with Liquid’s internal and external stakeholders.
“Tendai – The Beast – is not only a national champion but also someone who embodies the African spirit of hard work, determination, and integrity,” said Deon Geyser, CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies, South Africa.
“These are the same attributes and abilities that Liquid as an organisation stands for, not only do we believe in working with integrity and professionalism, but we are also here to generate a meaningful difference using our position to empower people in South Africa.
“Liquid and Tendai share the same values of leading with integrity along with a mutual vision for the future of this country, thus it was only logical for us to come together.
“Tendai is the perfect personification of what Liquid stands for – a responsible and respected leader and a changemaker.”
Speaking on the partnership, Tendai Mtawarira said: “Innovation, integrity, and leadership are key pillars of our society, so it gives me great pleasure to be joining a family with the same values that I hold.
“I look forward to helping to make a difference both internally and externally and to continue with the game-changing work the Liquid team has been doing.
“Technology is at the forefront for our current generation and there are still many without access and resources; it is up to us to make sure we make a positive and progressive impact for future generations.”
Liquid said it takes utmost pride in refining the new talent that joins them through such activities and events where people can learn from each other and grow harmoniously.
