South African Tourism (SAT) acting CEO Sthembiso Dlamini has resigned.
The board of SAT made the announcement in a statement on Thursday. Dlamini, who was the chief operations officer, was appointed to the acting position after former CEO Sisa Ntshona returned to the private sector in May this year.
This was after Ntshona’s contract ended, and the process to find a replacement began.
Dlamini had been with SAT for more than seven years.
“As we move towards the recovery of the sector, Sthembiso was pivotal in efforts to lead the organization and the sector on this crucial path. It is comforting to note that we have not lost her talents to the industry as she joins our sister organization,” SAT interim board chair Adv. Mojankunyane Gumbi said.
The process to appoint a permanent CEO is still underway and SAT said it was hoping to conclude the matter in the very near future.
According to a reliable source, Dlamini will be joining Gauteng Tourism.
