THE Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) Company has appointed its sales executive Mr Nicholas Ndebele as the acting general manager taking over from Mrs Nomathemba Ndlovu who resigned last month.
Speaking at Mrs Ndlovu’s farewell cocktail on Friday last week ZITF Company board chairperson Ms Ruth Ncube said the board was in the process of seeking a substantive general manager.
“Noma leaves big shoes to be filled and we would like to assure our stakeholders, clients and friends that the ZITF (Company) is seized with the matter of finding a suitable replacement for her. As we speak the recruitment process is at an advanced stage and we hope to make an announcement soon. Meanwhile, allow me to introduce to you the man currently steering the ship as the acting general manager, Mr Nicholas Ndebele,” Ms Ncube said.
Mr Ndebele joined ZITF Company in November 2017 as the sales executive.
He is a business development specialist with over 15 years of experience gained in the commercial and non-profit sectors.
Mr Ndebele is a holder in MSc in marketing from the National University of Science and Technology, an MBA with Midlands State University and is currently studying towards a PHD with the Board of Institution and Business Science in the University of Pretoria.
“With his experience and expertise, we trust that the ship is in good hands and his door is always open to engage stakeholders on any aspects that you would require from a ZITF stakeholder stand perspective,” said Ms Ncube.
