If successful, the firm will become the biggest employer at the ELIDZ
A fledgling East London company, KGI/BPO, says it will become a force in the fast-growing call centre industry, and has a powerful partner. The new company, which is based in the ELIDZ, has so far employed 40 people, most of them graduates. Its target is to employ 5,000 people and have a turnover of half a billion in the next three years, said Mthatha-born Antoinette Eckersley, the CEO of KGI/BPO, a division of KGI Holdings.
