Brand SA appoints new acting CEO

Apr 16 2019 19:47

Brand South Africa has appointed Thulisile Manzini as Acting CEO, following the suspension of the organisation's former boss, the company announced on Tuesday.

Manzini replaces Kingsley Makhubela, who was suspended in April 2018. He was cleared of sexual harassment in October, but is facing three new charges, which he has described as a "witch hunt".

Brand SA Chairperson Khanyisile Kweyama described Manzini as someone with experience in "transforming organisations and implementing turnaround strategies."

'Multifaceted executive'

"She is a multifaceted executive leader with more than 20 years’ experience in the public service, having held various roles in the South African government."

Prior to her appointment, Manzini was the Deputy Director-General for Governance and Administration at the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services (DTPS), a position she held since January 2016.

"Her experience has more than prepared her to fulfil this role with excellence, we are confident that she will propel the many strategic initiatives that Brand South Africa undertakes… to continue the work of building the reputation of South Africa, so as to contribute to its global competitiveness," said Kweyama in a statement.

The organisation, which is tasked with marketing the country abroad, said a disciplinary process was being pursued against Makhubela.
