Kingsley Dell-Robertson’s passion for development finance has been honed through his career of more than 10 years with the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC). He worked his way up through the various positions of Senior Account Manager, Senior Risk Manager, an now Senior Regional Officer to Regional Manager- Eastern Cape. The IDC has Eastern Cape offices in Port Elizabeth, East London and Mthatha.

Following this, his entrepreneurial spirit led him out of his comfort zone to start up a business in the mining industry extracting high value minerals. It was then that he faced a setback as the business had to close down due to lack of financing. This setback reinforced his desire to work in development finance to assist businesses in overcoming the lack of financing and he joined IDC.

Interaction with numerous business leaders across diverse industries has afforded Kingsley the opportunity to engage with people from different backgrounds and at various management levels placing strong reliance on his people and soft skills. He is proudly South African, enthusiastic, and hard-working and attributes much of his success to his dedicated team.

To relax he loves spending time with his family and also enjoys many outdoor and sporting pursuits including mountain biking and squash, as well as watching his children play sport.

“I am dedicated to making a positive tangible contribution in the Eastern Cape through the financing of businesses that creates employment and changes lives,” he says.
