Pam Golding, founder and now Life President of the globally recognised and locally celebrated Pam Golding Property Group, is not only an icon in the property industry and a powerful, positive role model for women and young South African entrepreneurs, she is internationally acknowledged as one of the world’s leading businesswomen.
Pam Golding Properties was launched in the challenging year of 1976 with virtually no capital, no leads, no infrastructure and just one sales assistant. Infused with Pam’s ethos, unerring talent for successfully matching buyers and sellers, graceful style, networking skills and passion for property, the Pam Golding brand today remains associated with the highest levels of professionalism, client service, ethics, leadership and innovation.
Of great importance to her, in recent years Mrs Golding’s role has evolved beyond the business of property into one of an ambassadorial nature as a global networker and facilitator, encompassing both the promotion of South Africa and its diversity of investment opportunities to the world at large.
Over the years she has been honoured for her leadership skills and personal achievements with an impressive array of national and international awards – presented by her peers and the business sector.
