Management Team

We know that our success as an organisation depends on the skills, motivation and commitment of our staff, and we value and respect those whom we are privileged to lead. We achieve most when working as a team, which is why cooperation, information sharing and mutual support is our focus. Openness and the free expression of ideas leads to better decision making, and mistakes made in the pursuit of challenging objectives are not considered blameworthy.

It is our goal to maintain a high calibre workforce by recruiting capable people and investing in them through training and professional development and demonstrating effective leadership.
