Ms. Nozipho Sithole

 Nozipho small

Ms Nozipho Sithole, the first female Chief Executive of Transnet Port Terminals was appointed in July 2017

Nozipho Sithole, who is Transnet Port Terminals’ (TPT) first ever woman Chief Executive, a major feat for the recognition of women in this male-dominated sector.

Nozipho holds a number of degrees and these include a BCom and an LLB degree from the University of Witswatersrand as well as an MBA degree attained at the Milpark Business School.                         

Being no stranger to Transnet, Nozipho joined TPT after vacating her role at Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Prior to that, she held various General Manager positions at Transnet National Ports Authority Operations, TFR’s National Command Centre as well as Iron ore and Manganese Business Unit, where she was passionately known as “The Iron Lady”.

An attorney by qualification, she joined Transnet as a Legal Adviser. Possessing extraordinary work ethics, Nozipho is a leader that demands high levels of accountability, proactivity, speed of delivery, discipline, teamwork, agility and quality. 

 

 cordially invites you to this special Transport Forum SIG.

A full day event with great presentations, panel discussions and many communication
desks staffed by professional bodies from the transport sector.
