Mi7 National Group Claims Standard Bank KZN Top Business Award

Mi7 National Group has claimed top honours at the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Award for 2022, having being selected as the winner in the Business Innovation category.

Mi7 Chief Executive Officer Shadrach Karien received the award on behalf of the company during a ceremony held in Durban on Wednesday evening. The title was awarded to a business “that can
demonstrate an innovative approach to products, or processes, which has contributed to the success of the business.”

When Mi7 National Group established its Armed Response service in March 2021, it had to set itself apart in an already saturated market. By incorporating the company’s public service model with a number of digital innovations, the company was able to transcend traditional service models in the industry, adopting a proactive approach to crime prevention for the entire community, client or not.

This has led to Mi7 National Group’s Armed Response being a formidable stakeholder in Pietermaritzburg’s security cluster after only a year since its establishment. “This award is for our dedicated teams who begin and end each day in the service of their communities. It is for our clients who have entrusted us with their protection. It is for our entire community which has  encouraged and inspired us to be better. We are proud to have this honour bestowed upon us. It serves as motivation for us to continue delivering the exemplary service our clients and communities expect,” said Karien.

Mi7 National Group would like to extend its appreciation to the team and judging panel at the Standard Bank KZN Top Business Awards.
