January 2017 – SATSA is delighted to announce that Hannelie Du Toit has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer.
“Last year ended in a state of flux, and we were very grateful to bring in Petra Onel on an interim basis to see us through this transition period. Over December, SATSA’s National Secretariat deliberated on the way forward and is now extremely proud to appoint Hannelie Du Toit as the association’s new Chief Operating Officer,” says SATSA National President, Gavin Courtenay.
Du Toit joined the SATSA team two years ago and has played an instrumental role in steering various important projects including open safari vehicle permitting, transformation and operating licenses. She will continue to work on these various initiatives with assistance from the rest of the SATSA team.
“Hannelie’s proven track record of over 20 years’ experience in tourism, marketing and economic development aligns well with the job at hand. She has in-depth understanding of both the industry and organisation and has worked closely with our membership. As a result, we are confident that she will be able to take the high standards we set in terms of service delivery even further,” says SATSA CEO, David Frost.
