ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE E conomic empowerment was a key consideration in structuring GLOBAL IMAGE. The company subscribes to the broader principles of economic empowerment of previously marginalized groups, which seeks to address the skewed distribution of equal opportunity in South Africa. This aim is achieved through a 63 percent shareholding by Maluleke Luthuli & Associates (PTY) Ltd, with directors Themba Maluleke and Siphiwe Luthuli; as well as 5 percent shareholding by Alex Mzizi. GLOBAL IMAGE has offices in Gauteng (Pretoria) and Western Cape (Stellenbosch), with project offices in the Eastern Cape and Limpopo Provinces.
