The Swanepoel Power 200

The 2023 list, the 10th annual, is below. The ranking of leaders and executives on the SP 200 are not based on company size. In fact, size is just one of eight criteria used. Any reference to size and sales volume is shared for framing purposes and numbers quoted reflect 2021, the last full-year audited numbers. Audited numbers for 2022 will be available 90-120 days after the end of the financial year and will be released by T3 Sixty in May (known as the Mega 1000).

Analysis of the SP 200 takes approximately 10 T3 executives approximately 500 hours, following a deliberate, detailed procedure and review of the eight criteria. The SP 200 attempts to provide an accurate reflection of the leadership of the industry as is; it includes no sponsorships, pay-to-play, discrimination, or preferential treatment. Learn more about the methodology and process used to determine the rankings.
