Shawn Theunissen leads SA’s largest real estate company, Growthpoint Properties’ Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programme, Property Point. The initiative is dedicated to unlocking opportunities for small and medium enterprises operating in SA’s property sector.

Theunissen says the CSI initiative has achieved an impressive number of successes in about 10 years. He sat down with Business Day to discuss Property Point, which has 17 employees in total.
