Gerhard Greeff.

At the annual general meeting of MESA Africa held on 7 June 2023, votes were taken on the election of officers. The new team in charge is made up of Gerhard Greeff (chairman), Gawie Reyneke (vice-chairman), and Nick Stead (treasurer). We thank the outgoing chairman, Daniel Spies for laying the foundation for big changes at MESA Africa and for steering the team through some very challenging years. The new 2023 executive committee will be announced in the near future.
