Umbono is a South African word with Nguni origins which means "Vision".
It was founded in 1998 in Johannesburg by 7 young professionals, armed with a vision to build a business, that would be a significant contributor to South Africa's young democracy. Whilst some of the original 7 have moved on, Umbono has continued to attract principals and directors who share the vision of the original founders.
Through the years Umbono has continued to grow and adapt – often reinventing itself in the process. The most recent of these transitions was a full restructuring of the Umbono group resulting in 2 separate companies, both of which continue to operate globally. Whilst the brand name is shared, the companies operate completely independently of each other.
