Following the re-deployment of Njombo Lekula, former Managing Director of PPC Zimbabwe, as the Managing Director of PPC’s International operations, the country’s executive team has been further strengthened through a number of new appointments. The most significant of these is the appointment of Kelibone Masiyane, former General Manager of Colleen Bawn and the Buawayo Factory, as PPC Zimbabwe’s Managing Director.
"Kelibone's promotion will see him assume overall responsibility for PPC Zimbabwe's business, with his key focus our Harare factory," notes Lekula. "His extensive operational experience in the business is sure to stand him in good stead in his new role, and we are confident that his leadership will see the company work to implement its strategy effectively against the back of PPC's new group vision."
Additionally, Iain Sheasby and Karen Mhazo have been appointed to the roles of Commercial Director and General Manager of Finance respectively. The promotion of current Group Human Resources Manager Designate Trust Mabaya in March, combined with the other promotions, has strengthened the country’s executive and management teams.
"They are also a clear indication of the Group's succession planning strategy in action – and our ability to develop and groom internal members of PPC Zimbabwe's family to assume vital leadership roles."
"As we take the reins and engage with the ExCo and management teams already in place, we're looking forward to building the legacy of PPC Zimbabwe in our new positions," comments Masiyane. "We invite government and our customers and suppliers to continue partnering with us on this journey as we strive to bring PPC's brand promise of ‘Our strength. Your vision' to life."
