GQEBERHA–based truck body manufacturer, Kanu Commercial Body Construction has announced the appointment of its new board, with Isuzu Motors South Africa Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Billy Tom in the driving seat as the new Chairman.
The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Isuzu Motors South Africa that operates independently and was established in 2015 to create extended value to commercial vehicle customers.
Appropriately for women’s month, Mandlakazi Sigcawu, Isuzu SA’s Department Executive: Corporate and Public Affairs, becomes the first women to be appointed to board, where she is joined by Duvan de Ridder (Kanu: Finance Manager), Michiyuki Miura (Isuzu Chief Financial Officer) and Ingo Epler-Brandenburg (Kanu Chief Operating Officer).
Sigcawu, a recent appointment to Isuzu, previously held a leadership role at a Fortune 500 company, where she was the Head of Communication and Transformation, managing projects across East and Southern African markets.
Epler-Brandenburg thanked outgoing KANU Board members Craig Uren, Chris Jonk and Michael Pienaar.
“I am extremely honoured and excited to work with the highly respected new members of our Board and the team at Kanu. As a collective we are committed to continuing the rewarding work of KANU by living up to our motto, ‘Delivering Creative Solutions’,” he said.
