This month for TSIBA marks endings and exciting new beginnings. Whilst we are sad to see our founder and CEO Leigh Meinert step down, we are extremely pleased to welcome to this post-Professor Kobus Visser from UWC who is stepping in to take TSIBA through its next transition.
Professor Visser, a solid presence in Western Cape education since he joined UWC in 1983, left as Dean of the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences and will step into the role which sees him eminently-suited for his post as the interim CEO of TSIBA Business School. He holds the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Leadership from Stellenbosch University and completed his postdoctoral studies in social entrepreneurship at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
With over three decades of experience in teaching and research in entrepreneurship, leadership and business management, Professor Visser is looking forward to the challenge of seeing TSIBA undergo a massive growth spurt in the next 12 months.
Professor Visser on his new role as TSIBA’s interim CEO said; “I am delighted to participate in guiding TSiBA to accommodate the challenges facing education. We are increasingly confronted by a digitally intensive environment which demands that we prepare and equip our leaders of tomorrow with new foundational skills, namely a set of human, digital and business skills.”
