Today marks an exciting and significant moment in the life and leadership of the Cape Town Partnership.
Andrew Boraine – after nearly ten years with the Cape Town Partnership – will be stepping down as Chief Executive, effective as of 30 April 2013. Most excitingly, he will continue to work with the organisation in a new role. He will be assisting the Partnership in drawing on lessons learnt during the organisation’s 13 years of existence and applying these to the design of effective partnerships for development. He has also been appointed as acting CEO of the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership. We look forward to working with him in this new capacity.
As of 1 May 2013, Bulelwa Makalima-Ngewana, who has been serving as Managing Director since early 2011 and has been with the Partnership since 2004, will be stepping into the role of Chief Executive, where she will have the full responsibility of guiding and steering the organisation as it continues to facilitate partnerships for urban transformation.
Bulelwa and Andrew have worked closely together in the last eight years as an effective leadership team. It is exciting that, while changing roles, these two leaders will continue to work together, designing partnerships for urban transformation and socio-economic development.
Please join us in wishing them well in their new positions, and acknowledging the significant contribution both have made to the life and livelihood of the Cape Town Partnership.
