TNT Express Worldwide South Africa, a logistics and courier services company, has announced the appointment of Kobus Fourie as managing director of TNT South Africa and Namibia. Fourie replaces Tim Steel, who will now focus on TNT's North, East Africa and Indian Ocean operations.
Fourie initially came on board TNT as operations director in January 2008, bringing with him a strong logistics background. Prior to joining TNT, he was the national logistics manager for Sony Electronics and regional manager for SkyNet Worldwide Express before taking up a role as national operations manager for RTT Style.
"Kobus has made a significant contribution to TNT, bringing improvements to the company's operational capability," says Dave Spargo, regional manager Africa. "South Africa plays a crucial role in TNT's Southern African operations and the ongoing development of Africa as a whole. As such Kobus' focus areas will include the development of the Southern African road network and overseeing TNT's Namibia operations."
