We are delighted to announce that Brenda Coetzee CA (SA) has purchased a one third equity share in CMDS. Brenda now joins Cathy Masters and Paul Tyler as equal partners in the business with effect from 1 September 2017.
Brenda began working part-time as an employee of CMDS in April 2010 and now feels that the time is right to invest more fully in the future of CMDS and its clients.
Before joining CMDS, Brenda completed her articles at Deloitte Durban, worked in various roles overseas, and then joined Deloitte Cape Town, before moving to Habitat for Humanity. She has also been involved with a number of non-profits as a volunteer board member.
We look forward to her increased participation in the running of CMDS and to benefitting from not only her strong skill set and considerable knowledge of the non-profit sector, but also her fresh and creative approach to our work.
Cathy conceived of CMDS in 1987, and, seeing the demand for CMDS’ services grow, she invited Paul to join her from the UK in 1997. The staff and associates, and the range of services offered, has grown steadily over the years, to include an extensive range of services aimed at the financial health for non-profit organisations and the non-profit sector:
- Consulting, on-going support, and training
- Internal audit/financial system reviews
- Bookkeeping and payroll services
- Due diligence reviews for funders and ongoing support for their project partners

After 30 years, we remain passionate about supporting the sector, through these services, in bringing about positive change in our country.
