The Raymond Ackerman Portrait

Raymond Ackerman
Artist: Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]
Oil on canvas
610mm x 762mm

Raymond Ackerman, South Africa’s Pioneer of the Hypermarket, indomitable leader in business and philanthropist, is the 13th face of Facing a Century by the artist Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]. The portrait is a textured, oil on box canvas, classic grisaille painting in a paynes grey monochrome.

Raymond’s Pick n Pay story began in Cape Town in 1967 when he purchased a group of four small supermarkets. The decades that followed saw Pick n Pay growing under Ackerman’s leadership to the close to 800 stores across South Africa, Southern Africa and Australia that it is today. Pick n Pay is a values-based, strong and enduring family business that has consistently featured in the Top 100 Companies since the early 1970s.

Ackerman was the first South African recipient of the Award for Corporate Citizenship from the Woodrow Wilson Centre in 2008 for his entrepreneurial leadership and for the role he has played in the economic recovery and well being of the New South Africa. He has also been a recipient of the Sunday Times Lifetime Achiever Award, the Pioneer Award from the SA Council of Shopping Centres and the IMM Millenium Achievement Award from the Institute of Marketing Management.

Raymond Ackerman‘s phenomenal success in business has been flanked by his commitment to philanthropy. The Ackerman Family Educational Trust supports educational upliftment in SA, providing scholarships and bursaries as well as funding educational organizations for the mentally and physically handicapped. He also established the Raymond Ackerman Academy of Entrepreneurial Development together with the UCT Graduate School of Business in 2005 in order to offer SA youth the opportunity to develop themselves, their communities and nation. In recognition of his dedication to humanitarian service, he was named a Melvin Jones Fellow by Lions Clubs International and he received the B’nai B’rith Humanitarian Award.

Thank you, Raymond Ackerman, for lending the face of one of SA’s Men of the Decade to Facing a Century.
