Recent Western Cape Business News
The Cape IT Initiative (CITi) Board Meeting recently conducted a Board Election process. Candidates were nominated and voted for by CITI Stakeholders and the election was conducted online using an independent third party (Electionbuddy.com).
The three CITi board directors who were re-standing for election, namely Andrea Böhmert (director of Hasso Plattner Ventures), Greg Reis (CEO and founder of Business Systems Group) and Raven Naidoo (chair of Future Perfect/Radian), were all re-elected as CITI board directors.
In addition, three new directors now join the CITi board, namely Mustapha Baboo (Maxxor Business Solutions), Joy-Marie Lawrence (Business Connexion Group) and Russell Dreisenstock (MIH Internet).
Two further changes have been made to the non-elected directors of the CITi Board: Nezaam Joseph replaces Jo-Ann Johnston as the representative for the Provincial Government Western Cape, and Prof Willem Visser replaces Prof Anthony Staak as the Cape Higher Education Consortium (CHEC) representative.
The other non-elected Board members remain unchanged. Wesley Diphoko remains the Black IT Forum representative; Faith Kolala (alternate to Nokwanda Modise) remains the City of Cape Town representative; Joshin Raghubar, remains a board director in his capacity as the Chairperson of the Bandwidth Barn Board and Jenny McKinnell remains a director in her capacity as the Executive Director of CITi.
“We are very excited to have attracted such a high caliber of directors to the Board and look forward to working with them during the next two years. CITi Board members are all volunteers and we appreciate their willingness to dedicate their time and offer their expertise to assist CITi in achieving its mandate of developing and supporting an information and communications technology cluster in the Western Cape,” says CITi Executive Director, Jenny McKinnell.
