Pretoria, 7 December 2023
The Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) has elected CEO of Motsamayi Tourism, Jerry Mabena, as its new Chairman of the Board. Mabena takes over the reigns from Mr Blacky Komani who served two terms in the position. Komani showed skill and exemplary leadership for the Council and the tourism sector as a whole when he steered the industry through the difficult period of the COVID-19 pandemic, fostering greater collaboration between the private and public sectors.
The newly minted TBCSA Chairman, Jerry Mabena, will be deputized by Ms Lindelwa Isabelle. The appointments come on the back of our recent Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Both Mr Mabena and Ms Isabelle bring a wealth of experience in the tourism industry having held key positions in the sector, which makes them the perfect team to help the association achieve its strategic objectives over the next two years.
CEO of the TBCSA, Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa, says the new board will help guide the tourism sector toward realizing its goal of boosting economic growth by maximising South Africa’s attractiveness to source markets.
