RMI Newsflash – A New Era for RMI: Introducing a new Co-CEO structure





RMI Newsflash – A New Era for RMI: Introducing a new Co-CEO structure


I am pleased to announce that our transformative strategy to introduce a Co-CEO leadership structure featuring two newly established executive positions of equal stature and accountability is complete. The Board has unanimously approved the appointment of our second Co-CEO appointment, Ipeleng Mabusela, in the role of CEO: Strategy and Corporate Support, effective 1 January 2024.

Ipeleng, who holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of the Witwatersrand, has over 10 years of experience in strategy, operations, and new business development. Most recently, he was the Head of Operations and Strategy at the Automotive Industry Transformation Fund (AITF), a fund that supports the transformation of the automotive industry in South Africa.  He is a strategic thinker with excellent communication, leadership, operational, investment and negotiation skills.  He is passionate about creating impact and solving challenges in the automotive industry and beyond.

Ipeleng will work closely with Jan Schoeman, CEO Operations and Regulatory Compliance.

We are confident this structure holds the key to ensuring the success and stability of the Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI).

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Ipeleng at RMI and wish him every success in his new role.
Warm regards,
Jeanne Esterhuizen
President of the RMI
