Ahmed Mohammed Seedat

My Story


Ahmed Seedat was born and raised in Durban, South Africa in humble circumstances. From a young age Ahmed was involved with the family business, MC Seedat Brothers. After completing his schooling Ahmed set out to pursue a tertiary education. However, before he could complete his studies he was forced to join the family business and assist his father in managing it.


After a short period Ahmed realised that the family business was not where he wanted to be and he set out to establish himself outside of it. After pursing several business endeavours, both locally and abroad, Ahmed returned to complete his studies.

He has since been awarded a Certificate in Management Development Programme, Certificate of Management Studies and an MBA. In 2005 Ahmed established Vector Consulting with the aim of helping smaller business shift from a person-led process to the more efficient and successful process-led direction.


Ahmed has overcome his fair share of personal tragedies which saw him lose two sons in 2000 and 2002 in addition to beating cancer. This understandably led to a period of depression which he has since overcome. These setbacks reignited his passion for life, desire to succeed and help others.

“AT engaged Vector Consulting to review the performance of the company and identify weaknesses and opportunities to improve the gross profit margin. Ahmed Seedat of Vector Consulting performed an in-depth gap analysis of the business processes. Policy’s, Systems, Procedures and tools were tuned to make us see an improvement in Gross profit margin. We have certainly enjoyed how user-friendly Mr. Seedat’s approach was to problem-solving.”
