In Memorium

Paul Plant

BigFive Digital Founder Paul Plant left us on 31 August 2021. His deep passion for Africa and for the digital transformation of its small business community led Paul to create BigFive Digital in 2017 and launch it formally in 2018. BigFive would not exist today but for Paul’s vision, passion and commitment. Paul was not just a driven business leader. He was also a loving husband, a loyal friend, a master networker, a deep thinker, and a passionate fan of rugby, fine wine, and world travel. He is greatly missed. The BigFive team carries on in Paul’s honor.
