Crossover Transformation Group – testimony
Patrick was born and grew up in Zimbabwe until he moved to South Africa in 1994. He has been married since 1996 to Maude and they have been blessed with 2 sons – Tinotenda born in 2001 and Tadiwanashe born in 2003.
Patrick led a very successful corporate career in the IT industry by the world’s standards of measuring success, but one which led him into deep spiritual darkness and disconnection from the real important things in life. He started his career as a computer technician moving through the ranks to eventually hold senior positions including, District Sales Manager at Hewlett Packard, Sales Director at Oracle Corporation and Sales Director at Computer Science Corporation.
In 2005 he left the corporate environment and co-founded Umliba Investment Corporation – a South Africa based specialist information and media focused investment holding company. Through this company he set up a joint venture company called PA Sport South Africa (a leading sports information provider) together with London based Press Association Group. In 2008 he further co-founded Livemobile – a mobile media and services company.
In 2011 Patrick decided to lay down of all his business interests to form a new organisation – Crossover Transformation Group, through which He and Maude are pursuing their God given vision to be catalysts in the leadership and marketplace transformation of Africa and real grassroots transformation that will result in bringing measurable social and economic upliftment and reduction of corruption and injustices at community/city/country and continent levels.
Their dream is to ‘Transform the heart of Africa one person, one family, one school, one business, one government, one community, one city, one country at a time’.
