Sibusiso “Sbu” Gule is the Chief Executive Officer of Norton Rose Fullbright in South Africa, and his top position allowed him to experience the finer things in life.
Gule is the acting CEO of the global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright’s South African division. According to the company’s website, Norton served as the Chairman from 2012 to 2018.
However, prior to his roles in the leading global law firm, Gule was one of the partner in a firm which had been recognised as one of the leading black labour and employment firms in KwaZulu-Natal.
Briefly.co.za learned Gule obtained his LLB Degree at the University of KZN, which was then known as the University of Natal.
His first job was a part-time labourer at a nylon-spinning factory in KZN, and Gule added it was there he realised he was not cut out for manual labour.
“Wearing overalls and navigating heavy machinery and equipment made me realise early on that I was better suited to an office job,” he said.
In a recent interview with Financial Mail, Gule opened up about his interests and which notable icon he looked up to.
Although many people idolised Nelson Mandela, Gule said his role models were other struggle icons such as John Dube, as well as international hero Martin Luther King Jr.
His top position in the prestigious law firm allowed him to enjoy travelling, and Gule listed the Eurostar, between Paris and London, as his eight world wonder.
As for what he would have wanted to master, Gule said he is a petrol head and he would have loved to be a Formula one driver.
