Lindiwe Kwele has resigned as CEO of Johannesburg Tourism Company after three years at the helm of the city’s destination marketing organization. Kwele will be taking up a position as one of three Deputy City Managers in the City of Tshwane at the beginning of January 2012. The strategy and implementation portfolio for which she will be taking responsibility is sizeable and includes managing the city’s special framework, planning, and economic development.

“We are all enormously saddened by Lindiwe’s departure, as she has made enormous strides to really put Joburg Tourism on the map during her tenure,” said Acting CEO Phelisa Mangcu, who also heads up the Joburg Tourism Company’s Visitor Services Bureau, “However, she leaves behind a closely-knit team and a culture of fearless dynamism, for which we are enormously grateful. She will be sorely missed on the Joburg scene, but has JTC’s every good wish for success in her new role.”

The Johannesburg Tourism Company is a member of the International Council of Tourism Partners (ICTP), a new grassroots travel and tourism coalition of global destinations committed to quality service and green growth.
