Dalen Lance is the chairperson and CEO of Colour of Nine.

With 15-years experience in media broadcasting, as both an on-air broadcaster and digital content development specialist, he is a renowned and sought-after public speaker.

Dalen founded The Central Management Corporation in 2008; a personal brand and management agency to manage the portfolios of marketable local personalities within the media industry.

He established Colour of Nine in 2012 after noting a sizeable gap in the market for a 100% black-owned business intelligence gathering and technology solutions business. With a keen eye on the future of mobile and video broadcasting and IT convergence opportunities, Dalen has developed extensive and valuable market intelligence on media consumption in South Africa, as well as a regulatory framework and policy for Internet Protocol Television (“IPTV”) in the ICT sector for sub-Saharan Africa.

He holds a Master of Business Leadership (with distinction) from the Unisa Graduate School of Business Leadership (2014) and a Bcom Financial Accounting from the University of Cape Town (2004)
