SALGC Board Appointments
As with many other organisations, the South African Leadership Gentlemen’s Club has experienced its most serious challenge towards the end of its first year of existence in its executive management retention. The organisation experienced the resignation of several executives late December 2020 and mid-February 2021.
The leadership reasons for resignation were mainly for various personal reasons, and some sighted adventuring into better opportunities presented to them, but all of them are still staunch members of the club.
It is true that people move on when it is time to do so, and as the executive chairman of the club, once again, I wish every single one of them great success on the their future plans.
In consolidating the Club’s leadership and preparation of the exciting challenges of 2021, the club is proud to announce two senior appointments. These high profile leaders will be serving in the Club’s board and they are namely; Mr. Sandile Swana and Mrs. Mmule Ramothibe.
