A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus

Our Story

From humble beginnings as a small family business.

In 2004, in the basement of a small business block, the seed of Alefbet Holdings was sown and our first business, Shapiro Shaik Defries & Associates (SSDA) was borne.

Today Alefbet Holdings has grown into a Global Business Services Powerhouse, with over 1200 employees across our businesses and national head offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Our entrepreneurial mindset and business acumen remain pivotal to our rapid growth and success.

Talented and experienced professionals are the lifeblood of our businesses, with cutting edge technology and seamless business processes forming a flexible backbone. Combining innovation with collective wisdom we’ve built smart businesses with heart.

We are agile and forward thinking, with an innate focus on people development. We believe our employees are our most valuable assets, enabling us to deliver remarkable value for blue-chip clients locally and globally.

As a significant employer of young, previously disadvantaged South Africans through impact sourcing, we continually strive to create opportunities that empower and enable our youth to thrive.
