INTERVIEW: Adam Kethro

Adam Kethro is semi-retired South African logistics expert, businessman and author, born in KwaZulu-Natal in 1956. With no formal post-school business qualifications, he started his own freight company, Bridge Shipping, in 1980, which grew into one of Southern Africa’s leading logistics companies. His debut novel, Pleasures of the Harbour (Tracey McDonald Publishers), published in his 60s, tells the story of a young man driven to achieve his life goals. It is part adventure and part action, with lots of wheeling and dealing as the protagonist traverses the high seas and low roads of Southern Africa while opening boardroom (and a few bedroom) doors.
