Level 5 B-BBEE Contributor

Kunaal Mehta was appointed as Chief Executive Operator for Lichen Growing Mediums (Pty) Ltd in February 2023.

Harish Mehta is the Executive chairman and CEO of Clearwater Capital (“Clearwater”), a private equity fund based in Durban, South Africa. Clearwater holds a diverse range of interests with investments across media, real estate, retail, manufacturing and waste management, amongst others. As evident from its investments, Clearwater has developed broad experience across multiple asset classes and industries, with an investment focus on growth and a track record that spans over 15 years. In addition to their strategic involvement in each of their investments, Clearwater is a level 1 B-BBEE contributor.

The genesis of Clearwater stems from the Mehta family business, Uniprint, a 91-year old, 3rd generation printing business that offers a wide range of printing and packaging solutions.

Harish was the executive chairman and CEO of Uniprint from 1978 till 2011, after which the business was sold to the Tiso Blackstar Group (Formerly Times Media), where Harish became a non-executive director, a role he continues in today.

In addition to the above roles, Harish holds a number of other directorships and positions, including non-executive directorships at Spar and Redefine Income Fund and is the non-executive chairman of Ciba Packaging and Averda SA.
