Sugar producer Illovo Sugar South Africa (Illovo SA) has appointed Mamongae Mahlare as MD with effect from March. Mahlare will succeed Dave Howells who, after nine years as local MD, had chosen to take up the opportunity of a new role within the broader Illovo Sugar Africa Group as corporate and external affairs executive.

New MD for Illovo SugarIn a statement released by the company, Illovo SA said that Mahlare brings with her a wealth of general management, commercial, operational and engineering experience from roles at SABMiller, Tanzania Breweries, Unilever and Coca-Cola Beverages Africa. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BSc Chemical Engineering degree from the University of the Witwatersrand.

Mahlare will be joining Rebecca Katowa at Zambia Sugar as the group’s second female country MD and the first woman MD of a sugar producer in South Africa. “At Illovo Sugar Africa, we are committed to the transformation of the sugar industry across the continent and we are confident that the vision and expertise Mamongae brings to our South African business will be a key enabler of our growth and success in the years to come,” says Group MD Gavin Dalgleish.

Mahlare strongly endorses Illovo SA’s commitment to the transformation of agriculture and agribusiness across the continent. “Having worked in multiple African markets, I strongly support the role of business as active participant in delivering on the social and economic development agendas of each country, while maintaining its core commercial imperative. I look forward to being part of the delivery of the next stage of Illovo SA’s strategy for transformation, its ambitious growth agenda and downstream diversification.”
