Graunt Kruger

Head of operations, community banking, mobile banking, Standard Bank

What kind of person abandons the inanities of status updates and tagging on Facebook and instead uses the social networking site to organise a collection of blankets and money for the underprivileged in the run up to winter? Graunt Kruger � that's who. Kruger is a self-professed corporate activist. For his day job he works at the Standard Bank, trying to expand the frontiers of banking by giving people who were previously denied access the opportunity to participate in the formal economy. But for his side gig, he goes online to get those who do have to give back, by shoring up goods for the poor. Kruger, who completed a master's in new media, information and society, has an MBA from the University of Witwatersrand. He researched strategy processes in IT-intensive businesses. In 2005, he won a Nelson Mandela Scholarship to study at the London School of Economics. � Eamon Allan
