Letcee Board of Directors
“I aim to supplement the various skill-sets enjoyed by the LETCEE board..."
"I'll do this by sharing any relevant commercial experiences that will enhance the board’s oversight role and add to the continued sustainability of the organisation. Together with the strong and experienced management and operational teams, this will hopefully serve to increase LETCEE’s footprint and the difference that it already makes for South Africa’s children, and ultimately South Africa itself."
