PAVCON Industries director Shelton Paza recently scooped the Outstanding CEO Award (GOLD) at the Zimbabwe CEO Leadership Appreciation awards ceremony held in Harare.
The young CEO was rewarded for having a stupendous work ethic.
The award also recognises excellence and leadership and honours outstanding brands as well as leaders in various sectors.
From Manina Ngezi in Mashonaland West province, Paza has grown from strength to strength, paving a business that has seen him defy odds and dominate the dog-eat-dog construction business.
“My appreciation goes out to Zimbabwe CEO Awards and the recognisers of the event,” he told Standard Style.
“This award is a symbol of dedication and hard work exhibited by the team at Pavcon Industries.
“We always strive to give the best durable products so as to meet customer expectations and enhance their experience, which is why we get to be recognized at premier awards such as this and for that we are grateful.”
Paza has a number of accolades and he believes these come out of hard work.
Pavcon is a concrete manufacturing company founded in 2005. It produces interlocking pavers, compressed common bricks and kerbstones, among a host of other products.
“Getting recognition has proved to be the springboard to greater things for me and those around me as I am giving back to my community of Mupereki in Mamina, Mhondoro, through various sporting activities that are helping the youths,” Paza said.
“I came up with these activities as a way of curbing drug and substance abuse among youths in my village.”
Known as the Pavcon Sports Tournament, the gala will run every year pitting schools, both primary and secondary, drawn in communities surrounding Mamina.
