Milpark Business School announces new CEO

Van der Westhuizen, who succeeds Milpark founder Brian Pearce in leading the institution, has extensive business acumen and a significant financial background. A qualified chartered accountant, he has worked in public practice for over 20 years. He served as the national chairman of Moore Stephens (SA) since its formation in 2003 and is widely credited with growing the firm to ninth largest in South Africa (based on fee income) due to his excellent service delivery and dedication to the brand.

"Education is the future of South Africa, and in the face of an insatiable demand for knowledge and skills, private institutions will make a significant contribution to providing relevant business education to fuel economic growth. Milpark Business School is embracing this challenge with innovative teaching and modern technology and it is both an honour and a challenge to have the opportunity to lead Milpark Business School into the future," says Julian.

He adds, "Milpark is already a well-established, reputable provider of relevant, targeted education for business leaders in the banking, insurance, management and leadership arena, and I look forward to taking the business to new levels. The aim is for Milpark Business School to become the leading private education provider of business qualifications in the market, nothing less."

Julian van der Westhuizen has been in his new position since 1 March 2011.
