Tim Modise left his position at the SAFM radio station at the end of March, for his new role as CEO of the Sizwe Africa IT Group. He accepted the position in February.
Technology and service provider group Sizwe Africa IT recently announced that it had concluded a contract for R86m with South Africa’s Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. The contract involved the maintenance and provision of support services for the department’s IT systems over the next three years.
“I am pleased to see that the government recognises the important role that the ICT sector plays in supporting economic efficiencies and growth,’ Modise said. “This was also demonstrated in the recently announced strategic framework of the Department of Communications. New investments by the private sector, in particularly telecommunication companies, have been very encouraging for the industry.”
Modise previously worked as executive director communications and commercial affairs for the 2010 FIFA soccer World Cup and was chairperson of the black economic-empowerment scorecard for the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism.
He also led the Proudly South African campaign for three years.
The Sizwe Africa IT Group employs 500 people and was founded in 2001 by Ben Kekana and Hanno van Dyk.
