Announcing New Board Members

2020 was a challenging year for all of us. The pandemic caused many disruptions, frustrations and changes to the way we do business and handle auctions, but with the guidance, support and professionalism of our board, we were able rise above and overcome these challenges.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank our re-elected members for their dedication, effort and industry expertise: John Cowing, Phillip Powell, Martin Dibowitz, Marc Roberts, Clive Lazarus, Gift Ngwenya, Jacques Van der Linde, Bill Hartard, Nico Maree, Lufuno Ramoyada, Kwanele Boltina, Charles Rwizi, Sipho Nzuza and Tsitso Setai.

The South African Institute of Auctioneers is pleased to announce the addition of three new members to the Board: Disa Smuts, Chris Lotter and Sam Segopane. We are excited to welcome these talented individuals and we believe that their unique backgrounds and diverse experience will make them a great asset to the SAIA Board.

We would like to thank our outgoing board members Stef Olivier and John Tibane for their dedication during their tenure, and wish them all of the best for their future endeavours.
