Black Sourcing (Pty) Ltd

�
Long Description: 

Black Sourcing was established in July 2016. Offering a turnkey solution which connects the corporate brand to their corporate gifting, promotional items and events. It is by designing, creating, implementing and delivering unique product and experiences which reflects the uniqueness of the Company identity.

Thabo Ishmail Sithole started his career in the promotional industry in printing industry which included both screen and pad printing, always focusing on the job at hand to ensure 100% quality of the end product. Ishmail (as he is fondly known as) moved to Mango Cherri Promotions in 2009 and headed up the newly opened in-house print shop. He managed a team of 6 staff and worked actively to grow and develop the division. Given his commitment, passion and dedication, on the closure of Mango Cherri Promotions, he decided to enter into his own business venture after Mark Frank convinced him and offered to mentor him. This would offer a long-term career in corporate merchandise, printing and events and create further employment opportunities not only for the old staff of Mango Cherri Promotions but new employees. With Ishmail as the main shareholder, Black Sourcing was born.
