Bata South Africa


Founded in 1894, Bata is the worldʼs leading shoemaker by volume, designing stylish and comfortable footwear at surprisingly affordable prices. Bata is a family-owned business serving more than 1 million consumers a day in our 5,300 stores, and producing locally in our 23 Bata-owned manufacturing facilities across five continents.


From Milan to Nairobi, and La Paz to Singapore, we make, market and sell enviable new designs and era-defining classics. As well as being a global brand, we are still a private family business. And weʼre proud to act like one.


Originally, we set out to ʻShoe the Worldʼ. This led us to where we are now: The No. 1 global footwear company and an international fashion icon.

Introducing Thamsanqa Gama, our new Senior Financial Accountant at @batasouthafrica South Africa.

With a passion for numbers and analytical problem-solving – combined with a team-player attitude and collaborative nature – Thami is a perfect fit for his role.

He joins Bata South Africa with a wealth of experience from finance roles in the manufacturing and retail sectors, and his qualifications include a BCom Financial Accounting degree and a Post Graduate Diploma in Accounting, both from the University of Cape Town.

While the opportunity to work with the finances of a multinational company poised for local expansion and growth is certainly exciting for Thami`s career, what truly enticed him to join Bata Group was the chance to create a positive social impact.

“I was really taken aback when I was doing research on the company about the social impact that Bata has on the community it interacts with, especially through the Bata Children’s Programme,” he says.

“Having grown up in the township community of Hammarsdale, empowering and giving back is something I am passionate about, and I am happy that these values align with the company I am now working for,” he adds.

Thami is looking forward to a long and fruitful journey with Bata, and we are thrilled to have him onboard.
