Following the grandiose success of the 10th Annual CFO Awards in 2023, CFO South Africa continues to shine a spotlight on the finest in finance and their achievements in the last year. On 13 November, the 2024 CFO Awards nominees will be celebrated during a gala ceremony at The Polo Room in Sandton.

Dawn has been the CFO of the IEC since February 2020. She has also served as a non-executive board chair of Segokaku Transport and non-executive director of Cricket South Africa in that time.

She joined the IEC in 2019 as the interim CFO. Before that, she was the associate director of the TFR Consortium at the Department of Defence, as well as the interim CFO of the Road Agency Limpopo SOC.

Dawn started her career as an articled clerk at SNG, and later became an audit manager. She was seconded to PwC Los Angeles as a senior associate, before returning to South Africa as an inspector for the Independent Regulating Board of Auditors. From 2015 to 2016 she was an audit partner at Ngubane & Co, and from 2016 until 2018 she was an audit committee member at the CATHSSETA (The Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority).
