Imperial Holdings

Imperial Holdings is large multinational logistics and vehicle company founded in 1948 as a small car dealership in downtown Johannesburg, South Africa; it has since grown to earn R119, 517m in revenue and R6, 538m in profit in 2017 across its African and European footprint. Running the legal affairs of this complex business, which employs 48,000 people across 33 countries and makes billions of Rand yearly, is a major operation and accomplished expertly by its highly skilled in-house legal department. Led by Rohan Venter, group legal advisor and company secretary, it deftly handles all commercial, regulatory, financial and dispute resolution legal services for the company across its many jurisdictions. In the last year, among other prominent deals and transactions, the team worked diligently to unbundle Motus from the company’s listing on the JSE and achieve its separate listing.
