Tony led the team that successfully reorganized and rationalized the industry, whilst playing a pivotal role in forming the National Tote, which allowed the internationalization of the industry, thereby creating a sustainable business model.
Structuring of property ownership and developing beachfront apartments on the Island of Mauritius was another innovative project undertaken by Tony in the past decade.

Tony spent the best part of three years on the Cornerstone Institute project, where he restructured the operations, expanded the focus and repositioned the college from a market perspective, with an expanded focus on technology driven distance education. This entity has been transitioned into the hands of the new owners, who are far better placed to establish Cornerstone as a major force in the tertiary education sector.
