Michael Joubert was the CEO of a group of companies on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.[1]

Michael Joubert was a brilliant business entrepreneur of children's playground equipment and portable building units in South Africa. He built the legendary Zozo hut business. Mr. Joubert’s main company 'Zozo' had become a generic name in South Africa and the phrase zozo huts had become integrated into the South African language system.

The Joubert's gained public attention when Michael Joubert, as a romantic gesture, bought his wife one thousand long stemmed roses after the birth of their third son, Adam and the story became front page news.[2]

Joubert immigrated to Canada from South Africa with his family in 1989. Michael Joubert died of a stroke in 2002.[3]
