The Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation has appointed Mmabatho Maboya as its new Chief Executive Officer. 

Maboya took over the helm from Donné Nicol, who praised Maboya as a 'natural and worthy successor'.

“Mmabatho has contributed immensely to the Foundation’s mission in driving programmes that contribute to the socio-economic development of our country. I have no doubt that she will continue to grow the organisation and make the necessary impact for our people, " Nicol said.
 
The Foundation provides programmes that focus on improving education and supporting small business development. 
 
Maboya joined the Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation in 2015 as its Strategy and Partnerships Executive. In 2005, Maboya began her senior management career in local government.

“I believe the work that we do creates opportunities that change lives. We have through our 14 years of existence developed tried and tested models that make a sustainable difference. With the continued support of our partners, as well as new ones, we effect real and meaningful change for disadvantaged school communities, tertiary students and Black entrepreneurs. I am honoured to be afforded the opportunity to lead this remarkable organisation," said Maboya, praising Nicol for upholding the Foundation's values.
