South Africans were still mourning the death of Ma Winnie Madikizela-Mandela when news broke of the passing of property mogul, Pam Golding, who died at age 90 on 2 April.
One of the largest names in the real estate industry, Golding build herself an empire over the past four decades.
And, although she will be dearly missed, her business would continue to thrive in the housing markets.
Briefly.co.za looked at Golding’s three children, whom would likely be the heirs to her fortune of an estimated R11 billion, as documented in 2016, and her multi-billion-rand company.
1. Peter Golding
Peter studied at the prestigious St Andrews College in Grahamstown before he went on to study towards a degree at the University of Stellenbosch.
There he obtained his degree in accounting degree. He is currently the CEO of Pam Golding Commercial.
2. Andrew Golding
Andrew was also schooled at St Andrews College along with his brother. Godling’s son is quite the academic.
He studied towards his BSc at Stellenbosch University followed by a MB.CHB degree at the University of Cape Town, where he also pursued an Honours Degree in Sports Medicine.
He was a practising doctor for five years since 1991, before he ultimately left to join his mother’s company.
Now, he is the Chief Executive of the entire Pam Golding Property Group, which consists of 310 offices in Southern Africa, as well as international offices in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Mauritius, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, Zambia, Seychelles
Not much is known about Golding’s only daughter. Unlike her brothers, she choses to remain out of the spot light.
She does not live a flashy life, in fact, it’s almost impossible to find her on social media. It appears not all people with money want to show it off.
