Happy Friday!

We’re back after a whirlwind of a fortnight with positive engagements taking place all around!

Tuesday 13th was the TNPA/WCG engagement under the auspices of Minister Mireille Wenger and gave industry an opportunity to meet the new executive team of TNPA.

From a personal perspective it was an honour to engage with Advocate Michelle Philips, Advocate Phyllis Difeto, Chair Andile Sangqu and Oscar Borchards, taking over the reins of Acting Managing Executive, Western Cape Terminals.

In the perfect world, the dream team!!  We need to ensure that these posts become permanent!
